Tile & Lighting in Bathrooms Gives a Designer Look

Doric, Inc.
Northwest Trends Tile
Whether you are remodeling or building a new home you owe it to yourself to explore the tile and lighting options available today. The bathroom featured here was constructed by Doric Inc., and surface materials including countertops and tile were provided by Northwest Trends. Under cabinet lights provide dramatic and practical illumination to the hard-to-reach nooks of your kitchen, office, or storage space. They are a great way to illuminate counter or work space without adding more ambient light to the area. When selecting an under cabinet light, decide what style will best compliment your home. There are fluorescent under cabinet lights, accent lights, puck lights and standard under cabinet lights. Different fixtures will require different types of bulbs, from LED to halogen bulbs. Puck lights are small round lights that can be easily affixed by screw mount bracket or tape to the underside of a cabinet. Plug-in designs can be hung in a series and powered by an included power cord; while battery operated styles can be hung individually, making them perfect for small places like medicine cabinets and closets.

For an easy-to-install option, customers are increasingly turning to puck lights and light tape. These designs adapt to fit most spaces, adhere quickly to your cabinets, and are easy to power without the help of an electrician. Tape lights are a relatively new design. With a peel-and-stick adhesive backing, these LED lights can be cut to size and easily mounted to fit your space. Try them using as a permanent under cabinet solution or for party lighting or even outdoor decks.
