Lighting can do so more than illuminate a room. When done right, lighting solutions can direct your attention, change the look of an entire space, create a mood, add a sense of sophistication or comfort, and elevate or enhance a room or display. If you have a display of any kind in your home, office, or store, and want to add a clean, bright look to cabinets in a room or make your shelving display make a statement, incorporating LED lighted shelves is a great way to achieve your goal. By using LED shelves, the decor, products, documents, or whatever it is you want to place on them, will be sure to gain the attention of your guests or customers.
There are many benefits to LED lighting solutions. But when it comes to LED shelving, how does it compare to other LED lighting? LED shelves are just as beneficial as any other form of LED lighting solution. LED lighted shelves are energy-efficient, cost-effective, eco-friendly, safe to use, versatile, and customizable.
As with standard LED bulbs, LED lighted shelves are energy efficient. They will last more than a decade and will work even after being repurposed for another installation if you decide to change it up.
These shelves can be used for as long as needed without hiking up energy costs making LED lighted shelves a very cost-effective way to play with the lighting in your space or bring attention to items in your shop.
LED-lit shelves are made of environmentally friendly materials. The lights are non-toxic and recyclable. So whether you’re intentionally eco-conscious or not, by opting for LED lights you’ll be helping the environment and reducing your footprint all while enjoying clean lighting.
These lights are also safe for extended periods of use. Any decor or products on the shelves will be safe from any heat damage. Go ahead and display photos and artwork as well, because they too, will be safe from damage. LED bulbs do not produce heat, making them the perfect option for display lighting.
LED shelving options can be incorporated into a variety of spaces and for numerous reasons. LED-lit shelves are a great choice for displaying products in a retail store, even a bar to highlight different products, in a home to direct attention to decor and photos, or even to add something extra to a room or space.
One reason why these shelving options are so versatile is that they are available in both floating and cabinet shelf styles. This makes LED shelves the perfect option for kitchen displays, photo and art displays, bar selections, and jewelry stores just to name a few. Depending on your needs or budget, LED lighted shelves are available in both glass and plexiglass as well.
Just like any other LED lighting option, LED shelves are available in various colors, tones, and multi-color options. They can also include added features such as dimming or flashing effects controlled with a remote. Wessel glass lighting can be made in different shapes and sizes as well, so if you want any branding or logos, or even pictures, we have you covered. If you want blue or green lights or to be able to switch between the rainbow at any time, you can have it. If you want a warm tone for one display and cool tone in another, you can have that too.
Installation of our LED lighted shelves is quick and easy. All of our LED shelves include the corresponding mounts and light strips, depending on whether you opt for the floating shelf or cabinet style.
Installation for LED floating shelves is much like the installation of regular floating shelves. The first step in the installation process is to figure out where you want the shelves. Next, you’ll need to measure the wall you’ve chosen for your shelf. Measuring now will ensure you have the right-sized shelves and the correct number you will need to complete this project. Since Wessel LED lighted glass shelves don’t have regular wires or traditional cords, you don’t need to consider ease of plug-in.
Once you have your shelves, before you drill, you’ll want to locate the studs in the wall that you want to mount your LED-lit shelf or shelves. If you can’t find studs, or if they aren’t in the place you desire, make sure you use anchors when installing the shelves. After you’ve located the studs, or have the anchors, measure out and mark on the wall where you will be drilling the holes. Drill the holes, then install the mount and the shelf.
Different from floating shelves, edge-lit glass shelves will fit into cabinets or display case units in place of other shelves using the existing supports inside of the unit rather than needing mounting on a wall. Like with the floating shelves, however, you will need to measure the unit to ensure you get the correct sized shelf. Before placing the shelf into the unit, you’ll need to add the LED edge by sliding it over the back edge of the glass shelf.
Lighting is an important design element that can truly transform. Wherever the space or whichever style of shelving you choose, LED lighted shelves will certainly change both the shelving unit and space. With the correct tone and color, you can redesign the entire look and feel of your home, modernize an older cabinet or display case, or draw your customers’ attention. At Wessel, making sure you receive the perfect fit, style, and customizations you want is important to us. We want to help you achieve your lighting goals.
