FAQ: Choosing Modern Under-Cabinet Lighting

Jul
23

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Every kitchen design is different, and with that comes custom cabinetry, dimensions, materials, and countertops to consider. When choosing your modern under-cabinet lighting, it’s important to look for three things: minimal design, customizable lighting features, and modularity. Following these steps will make sure you choose the right lighting for your modern kitchen space.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="13615" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

1. Minimal Design

Under-cabinet lighting is used to accent the kitchen (wait for it) under your cabinets. Usually, lighting is either inset or sits very close to the bottom of your cabinetry and shines light down toward the countertops below. The design of this lighting should be low-profile as to not distract from other show stopping elements of your modern kitchen’s design. By using high-quality materials in a low profile, the lighting will accent the luxury aesthetic without becoming demanding in the space. We recommend choosing lighting that stands off from the cabinet under 2 inches and avoiding chunky lighting installations.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="6065" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

2. Customizable Lighting Features

Since every kitchen is unique, it’s important to choose lighting that is customizable to your space. To match the lighting’s color temperature to the rest of your space, choose a lighting system that has a variety of options. Usually, kitchens are equipped with color temperatures around 3000K-3500K. This white light is perfect for preparing food in a functional and clean space, while maintaining a small amount of amber hue for a comforting aesthetic. Another thing to consider is lens finishes of your linear LED lighting, specifically frosted or clear. Clear lenses help direct lighting for a more narrow beam of light. This is helpful in task areas, such as food-prep locations. However, with glossy countertops, you may face glare issues of the lighting reflecting too harshly. We recommend clear lenses for matte or semi-matte finished countertops. When it comes to glossy countertops, a frosted lens, although more diffused with a wider beam angle, still gives off the same brightness and would resolve the issue of glare.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="16507" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/2019/02/27/minimalist-white-kitchen-bright-designlab/"][vc_column_text]

3. Modularity

As dimensions change and cabinetry adjusts to your space, so should your lighting. Choose lighting that’s extendable and adjustable. With the ability to add and subtract length, you’ll find comfort in knowing that your cabinetry can be a custom dimension and you’ll still have the correct proportions of lighting.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="6234" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-display-light/"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

Modern Under-Cabinet Lighting

With its ½-inch diameter profile, the THIN Surface Mount Under-Cabinet Light offers minimal design with plenty of light output. Standoff options include 1.75”, and 3.5” for a low-profile lighting solution. The THIN System offers customizable options such as color temperature, lens finish, length, and the ability to join LED light segments together for custom dimensions. Juniper is able to provide corner pieces for uniquely shaped runs. The THIN Surface Mount Under-Cabinet Light installs easily to any material and LED light segments magnetically snap into mounting hardware. Since magnetic connections are made instead of hardwiring the light segments in place, segments can freely rotate a full 360° to aim lighting exactly where its needed and adjust as you use it. A variety of dimming options are available to work with wireless dimmers, or other lighting systems.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Browse the THIN Surface Mount Under-Cabinet Light" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2Fthin-surface-mount-display-light%2F|title:THIN%20Surface%20Mount%20Display%20Light||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More Articles" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fmodern-lighting-blog%2F|title:THIN%20Surface%20Mount%20Display%20Light||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

LightNOW Examines the THIN Solids Collection

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]LightNOW has been providing news and opinion to the lighting industry for nearly eight years. Craig DiLouie, a veteran industry journalist, had featured the new THIN Solids Collection in the popular lighting blog and newsletter platform to spread the news about our newest lighting addition.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="17295" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Our THIN Solids Collection offers a group of lighting designs featuring configurations such as a Tetrahedron, Cube, and Diamond, to represent the Platonic Solids. Solid brass connectors join ½-inch diameter light tubes to create intricate and symmetrical three-dimensional shapes for impactful pendant installations or grand chandeliers using clusters of the THIN Solids.   The product of collaboration with industrial designer Peter Bristol (who daylights as head of industrial design at Facebook), the THIN System is based on simple and minimal lines that magnetically snap into place. Light segments freely rotate to customize illumination properties. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="18397" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The THIN System began with the THIN Task Lamp as a solution for adjustable task lighting in the most compact silhouette possible. With this technology, an entire system was born. From a single line, the collection expanded into prisms, geometric shapes, and now extends into the third dimension. Lengths can be customized, as well as many other features of the design, to accommodate hospitality, commercial, and residential spaces for unique installations.  

The THIN light was the first incarnation and it has since taken on a life of its own. I don’t really feel ownership over it. It’s not my lamp, it’s not even Juniper’s anymore, it belongs to the people. Architects and designers can use it to do almost anything they want, it’s like a LEGO set for adults. -Peter Bristol

360° Design Installs Love Me Not Pendant in Modern Bathroom

Jul

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Deanne Walczak, Principal Designer of 360° Design, specializes in residential interior design. After her latest project, which installed a Love Me Not Pendant in a modern bathroom space, we asked her a few questions to understand her background, design philosophy, and more about this project.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="18704" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/love-me-not/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

Tell us about your background.

My career to become an Interior Designer, was not a conventional path one might assume you would take. I went to school for Graphic Design, and with numerous twists of faith, I ended up starting my 360º Design company many years later.   Looking back on some of my careers along the way; whether it was working in the television + professional sports industries, Graphic Design or Marketing platforms, I take note of a few common threads that were always a constant throughout my journey. All my jobs were always hands-on; in very creative fields, and every day the challenges + tasks assigned, were different.  These key qualities, I have recognized as assets to me, and are my favorite part of my current role as an Interior Designer. I love that my job is different every single day. That the challenges of each space, and the vision of each client is always different, and the solutions are commonly found by pairing a touch of psychology & vision, paired with key design elements, that all lead to the best design solutions for the space at hand.   I am in my sixth year of operating my own business, with six years prior to that, working in the industry. I have mostly work with residential spaces, but have had the privilege of working on commercial projects as well. In addition to those platforms, I also do virtual home staging + conventional home staging, with a few realtors in the Westchester area.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="18701" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/love-me-not/"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

What is your design philosophy?

I avoid niching myself with one particular style or direction when it comes to designing spaces for my clients. I find myself following a Frank Lloyd Wright philosophy, of balancing and pairing objects of function and form, to create a more harmonious optimal living space. Connecting organic material from nature, with an optimal space plan, proper lighting, and a great use of color, allows the elements to create a more harmonious living environment. In addition to this core philosophy, I utilize my past Graphic Design abilities, to help support my visions more clearly to the client(s) by creating visual schematics of their project in the early stages of development. After realizing that the majority of my clients had difficulty envisioning the overall plan/direction of their project, which delayed making key decisions needed to propel the project forward, I quickly realized that if I could show them the end result, rather than trying to convince them of my plan. It would now allow them to take much bigger risks with the decision process, or with items in the space, that they normally would not consider. It was a win-win for both parties and has proven to be a valuable resource for my design company, and the proof that a picture really is worth a thousand words.  

What was your inspiration for this project?

With this current master bathroom project, there wasn't one clear inspiration element or idea that drove us to the end result. It was more the "sum of the parts" kind of a vision. I discussed with the clients what their wants and needs were for the 20 x 20 master bathroom suite and then started sending inspiration photos to tap into a direction of the type of room that inspired them.   They had also been traveling abroad and determined a feel and a few amenities that they experienced while on their travels that they knew they wanted to incorporate in their space. And I knew, to not lose sight of staying true to the style of the home, which was Arts and Crafts/Art Deco. From there my vision took shape, and the space planning began. We discussed details, tweaked and fine-tuned our direction to incorporate a few elements from two design options, and came up with our ultimate vision.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="18703" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/love-me-not/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

What obstacles did you face for this project?

When I think back on building this bathroom, there were very few obstacles we encountered throughout the project. We had to adjust the placement of where we used the teak on the ceiling due to wiring and ducts, and we changed the direction of the layout of the floor tiling so it ran at a vertical direction instead of a horizontal direction when it came up the shower wall. I cannot lie though, I did lose sleep a few nights on one key component.   My client had a doctors appointment and was inspired by the walls at the building in which her appointment was. We had originally had our porcelain floor tile continuing onto the shower walls, rather than changing to a different decorative tile, as most bathroom showers do. The decision to do so was based on the over-scaled custom Acacia double vanity that was going in the room, on the opposite wall, which we anticipated to be our "wow" in the room (until we found our light). The species of wood being used had a lot of movement and we felt the simplicity of a solid, monochromatic, clean-lined tile continuing up the wall would offset this feature on the vanity. She came home with pictures of the walls and asked if we could do that in the shower. It was staying with the existing monochromatic palette and scale of the existing porcelain tile originally selected, but we would be adding every couple of tiles a blue stone thick slab that would ultimately create a subtle in and out movement to an otherwise flat wall. I drew out a plan and discussed with my contractor to implement this new feature to randomly add the slabs of bluestone to offset the existing porcelain. As the plan developed and began taking shape, the client's husband questioned the decision more than once, which reinforced a small doubt inside me that I had not conveyed to anyone else. So I lost a few nights of sleep over this, but every time I got back in front of that wall, I convinced him to stay the course and trust the vision.   I remember reading a quote that just helped me keep my doubts at bay and encourage the vision. It said, "Feeling nervous is a good sign you're making something original"...and that we did! He trusted the process and saw the vision through, and loved the ultimate design. And I eventually exhaled and caught up on my loss of sleep.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="18702" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/love-me-not/"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

Why did you choose the Love Me Not Pendant?

Throughout the entire duration of the production of the bathroom, we researched for the perfect light to ground our anticipated space. We actually had purchased one very early on in the project that we had agreed worked, but by all means, did not love. When the teak ceiling needed to be moved to the center of the room instead of on the soffit line, like we had originally designed, it changed our vision and I suggested we return the first purchased light. I knew that it was never going to be able to hold the center of the room, like the negative space dictated the right fixture to do. The teak was now being used on the ceiling centered in the room, and was going to be the background to something that needed to be amazing. At this point, it also became clear that the fixture needed to be something that featured a soft, feminine line, since the space around it had evolved and was reading very masculine. We needed to try and balance the masculine to feminine line of the room and offset the elements of the hard stone and wood that were used throughout the rest of the space, and helped support the curvy feminine line of our beautiful Cheviot modern claw foot tub.  And so the search continued.   Everything just fell flat.... Until one day, our search ended with your beautiful custom Love Me Not lighting fixture. It had me from hello. I  saw it, and I knew immediately it was the everything we had been searching months for. It was just the perfect bling to the little black dress. I seriously didn't know how I was going to move on from it if the clients did not see the absolute perfection it had to offer to their space. And just like that, our amazing, magnificent, Acacia over-scaled custom vanity had competition. She was front and center, commending the weight of the massive negative space to the center of our room, while offsetting the masculine line of the space with her beautiful scalloped curves, all while mimicking the petal shape line of the tub (that was an unexpected bonus). We were in Love. Which leads me to my only criticism of your light, its "Love Me Not" title.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

Modern Bathroom Lighting & The Love Me Not Pendant

The Love Me Not draws from childhood memories of picking petals off of daisies. The LED pendant’s delicate curves and diffused light are crafted from five layers of Evonik acrylic with a porcelain-like matte finish. Each pendant is hand-formed so no two fixtures are identical. The Love Me Not pendant is feminine and playful, soft and refined. As a grand statement piece, the Love Me Not floral pendant light reaches its full potential as it casts a warm glow. Deanne Walczak of 360° Design shows her process through her Instagram, to give viewers a peek at the design process, intriguing details, and final installations of her residential interiors, including this modern bathroom design.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Discover the Love Me Not Pendant" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2Flove-me-not%2F|title:Love%20Me%20Not||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="See More Lighting Projects" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fprojects%2F|title:Love%20Me%20Not||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

FAQ: How Do I Choose a Power Supply? Our Power Supply Guide

Jun
11

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We regularly get questions regarding power supplies. We understand they tend to be the most complex part of lighting, which is why we continue to simplify this option. We recommend discussing power supplies with your electrician or our team prior to purchasing if you're unsure of compatibility with your space and fixture.  

What is a power supply?

Understanding what type of power supply you need starts with an understanding of why you need one in the first place. A power supply is connected between the main line of power and your light fixture. It converts line voltage to 24VDC low voltage so your LED fixture is able to handle the proper amount of output voltage. All LED light fixtures need a power supply because if you connected an LED fixture straight to the main power source, your LED fixture will become overloaded and blow out.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17820" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

1. Where will your power supply be located?

Power supplies can either be local or remotely located. Essentially, the difference is that local power supplies at located directly above the fixture, within a canopy on the ceiling. Remote power supplies are located away from the fixture and in an accessible location, like a closet or cabinet area. Learn more about the differences here.  

2. What kind of dimming does your space require?

This is a variable that is determined by your electrician. Juniper offers either 2-Wire/TRIAC/Forward Phase, 0-10V, or 3-Wire/Ecosystem dimming options. Generally, 2-Wire/TRIAC/Forward Phase dimming is hooked up to a wall dimmer or switch. This is standard in residential or basic electric situations when the fixture is powered by a light switch. This is our most common option for single-fixture setups or residential spaces. 0-10V refers to the dimming range in volts. At 10V, the lights controlled by the dimmer are at 100% brightness. At 1V, the lights are at 10% measured brightness. At 0V, it either turns the lights off or has the lights dimmed to the lowest possible level and a switch is required to turn the lights completely off. 0-10V dimming is compatible with many wireless dimming systems, Lutron, and Leviton systems. This can be used to connect numerous fixtures together ideal for commercial or hospitality settings. 3-Wire is a Lutron-specific capability used for Lutron Ecosystem setups and is compatible with the Caseta wireless dimming system. Sometimes, our clients are determined to use name brands familiar to them for power supplies. Since Lutron is a reputable brand and well-known through the industry, clients have peace of mind when purchasing a Lutron product. Although all of our power supplies are reputable and well-tested, we offer this option for clients who are setting up a new 3-Wire system or adding to an existing one.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="17193" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

3. What is your input voltage?

Juniper offers universal input power supplies, so all of our power supplies should work with any location’s voltage, across the globe. If you’re curious, depending on your location, your area’s voltage is assigned to you. Usually, it’s either 120V in the America’s, or 277V for European areas. Check this voltage map to see your location’s voltage.  

4. What is your fixture's total wattage?

Juniper calculates this for you and we only provide power supplies compatible with your fixture’s wattage. However, this is helpful to understand when connecting multiple fixtures to the same power supply. If you plan to do this, we recommend telling our team so we can guide you in the right direction. Once you calculate the total wattage you’d like to connect to a power supply, it’s important to look at the power supplies’ output wattage. Your fixture can not exceed this value. Juniper offers power supplies up to 96W, and when a fixture exceeds one power supply, it’s easy to install the fixture on two power supplies together. Juniper uses a 10% buffer for power supply output wattage, so that the fixture’s wattage doesn’t get too close to overloading the power supply. For example, we only connect fixtures with a wattage of 54W or less to a 60W power supply.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]As always, we recommend checking with your licensed electrician or our sales team prior to choosing power supplies.
