    How are furniture lights mounted?

    There are three different options:

    1. Mount a plastic ring on a smooth surface and insert the light. No drilling into furniture is required, yet you get an additional 1-2 cm in height.

    2. Drill a blind hole and insert the light using a mounting spring. Turn down the spring and the light is ready for use. This does require approx. 5 cm of space next to the light.

    3. Drill a blind hole, into which the light is wedged. No extra height to think about and nothing but the light is visible. The best option for display cases and shelves.

    • In the kitchen: as under-cabinet lights
    • In the bedroom: to light up the wardrobe
    • In the living room: to provide attractive ambient lighting for a display case or bookcase
    • In a child’s room: to make the children’s toy shelf even more appealing.

    Do furniture lights need to be connected to the power supply?

    Do furniture lights turn on by themselves?

    They do if you want them to, just choose a model with a motion sensor. For example, if you want to grab a T-shirt out of the cupboard in the morning, the light turns on when you open it – super handy! Furniture lights with motion sensor can be operated manually by a switch, too,  if required.

    Do I need to look for a fire safety symbol?

    Up until a few years ago, you still needed to look for the fire safety symbol “M”. This symbol guaranteed that furniture lights were safe to use, as long as they were properly installed. Today the symbol is no longer required. Just ask our specialist consultants if you have questions regarding how suitable your preferred light is for your furniture.
