What is linear lighting?

If you’re new to lighting and home renovations, you may wonder what linear lighting is and why it’s become the next trend in interior design.

Linear lighting usually comes in the form of “strips” of LED lights. As the name suggests, it is a line of light. The linear lighting design allows you to make your home or business stand out with a continuous lighting line.

This means more flexibility in lighting concepts. Linear lighting is great for accent lighting, lighting long bookshelves, and lighting shelves and cabinets full of exotic art. It can also create dramatic lighting and illuminate specific hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.

Let’s explore some of the benefits of linear lighting.

  • Task lighting

Task or task lighting is one of the more practical advantages of linear LED lighting.

For example, linear pendant lights are a great addition to your kitchen to illuminate areas where you cut and prepare food. In this case, the nice thing about linear lighting is that it provides a more diffuse light over a larger area, unlike a spotlight.

Is it better to use linear strip lights than to illuminate shelves of any kind?

The truth is that the judicious use of linear LED lights around bookshelves and other shelves can add depth and a dramatic touch to your home. Your imagination is the only limit to what you can do. For example, hidden bands of light on shelves help books and curios “pop” out of the background.
