Toe Kick Lighting: A Kitchen Lighting Concept Growing In Popularity

This past weekend, my husband and I gathered with family to remember his beloved aunt who passed away a month ago. Although the circumstance wasn’t the greatest, it was nice to see all of the family who we haven’t seen in a few years. As we gathered in his cousin’s remodeled kitchen, my eyes were drawn to the kitchen lighting. And what stuck out the most that highlighted and accented the new LED undercounter lights and over-counter chandelier was their toe kick lighting.

What Is A Toe Kick?

You may be wondering what the heck is a toe kick if you don’t have furniture, specifically cabinets, with this concept. A toe kick is the recessed space between the base of a cabinet/vanity and the floor. The space provides extra comfort due to added standing space for your feet while using the countertop of a cabinet, island, or bathroom vanity.


What Is Toe Kick Lighting?

Toe kick lighting is a type of lighting that can be used in almost any room in the house where a toe kick is present. It is installed under the toe kicks of cabinets or vanities. Visually, this lighting concept is a great accent application for a kitchen area. It highlights well with other LED kitchen lighting like under-cabinet lights, recessed lights, and over-counter island pendant lights.
