40 Years of Ludlow Homecare
Celebrating 40 years in business is a huge accomplishment – congratulations! Take us back to 1983 where it all started, and tell is how the business got to where it is now?

Having managed a builder’s merchant in Bridgnorth for some 10 years, I always wanted to have a shop of my very own. I needed to find a suitable location and I searched
the whole of Shropshire trying to find it. Ludlow had everything I wanted – there was the town, but also a large catchment area of many villages and neighbouring towns.
I settled on a 3,000 square foot unit by the banks of the Teme here in Ludlow, which was the ideal location. Many store chains have tried and failed to trade in Ludlow, but we are an independent local business and that has been the key to growth. It could very easily have gone the other way; I have acquired all but one of the original trading units at Ludford Bridge over the years, as others regretfully closed. Today we are still going strong and expanding while others are holding back.

Look out for the new kitchen showroom, then the bedroom and bathroom showrooms to follow later this year.

You’ve been invited to meet the King – not an invitation many receive! How did this come about? I was delighted and honoured to receive the 40 Years of Ludlow Homecare invitation to meet the King. To say I was shocked when it arrived in the mail would be an understatement. It was to recognise the contribution of small business
to the economy of the United Kingdom, at a reception held with the King, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent. I was just pleased to be invited in the same company as people such as Peter Jones and Grant Shapps.

Tell us about your grand opening for your brand new kitchen showroom on Monday 3rd April this year? I took the decision to employ a very successful and experienced businessman to handle this project. Totally redesigning and rebuilding the interior and managing to secure the rights to sell Laura Ashley kitchens and bedrooms. This is a very big deal as only one in every eight applications are successful. I had been toying with the idea for some time and now it’s become a reality. We are also so grateful to
Mr Alistair McGowan for kindly agreeing to open the new showroom.
There will also be renowned chef Sophie Hyam doing a cookery demonstration on the day, so we hope people will come down.

Kitchen Cabinet Lighting Ideas

Ideas to bring your kitchen to life with Under-Cabinet Lighting

Under-Cabinet Lighting

Under-cabinet lighting is one of the hottest kitchen trends this year when it comes to lights for kitchen units in newly fitted kitchens

Types of Under-Cabinet Kitchen Lighting

If you’ve never installed under-cabinet lighting before, then you may be surprised at just how many different types of lighting styles there are to choose from. Here are just a few that can really look great in your kitchen:

Indoor Cabinet Lights for Glass Doors

This type of under-cabinet lighting is ideal for homeowners who love the idea of open shelving in the kitchen to show off special crockery and family heirlooms but want an added layer of glass for protection. Brilliant white lighting installed behind the glass kitchen doors highlights your kitchen’s best accents effortlessly, while still managing to spread a warming glow throughout the entire kitchen area.

LED Rope Lights

White LED kitchen under-cabinet rope lights have the advantage of being flexible, versatile, inexpensive, and are very easy to fit. When attached to the underside of your cabinets, they direct a gentle glow right down onto your kitchen worktops – ideal for fitted kitchens whose worktops are the star of the show! This direction of white light is also great for those who love to indulge in a little night-time baking and need excellent under cabinet lighting.

LED Strip Lights

Similar to rope lights, LED strip lights tend to be a bit thinner, which means they can be placed underneath flat-bottomed wall cabinets without looking out of place. Many LED strip lights now come in colour-changing options that can be controlled through a smartphone. This type of lighting is perfect for modern, contemporary kitchens, and also works well in white kitchens in need of a splash of colour.

Puck Lights

Puck lights are, perhaps, the easiest and most cost-effective form of under-cabinet lighting. Many varieties contain self-adhesive backing strips which means they can simply be stuck onto the underside of your cabinets. For a more permanent lighting solution, they may also be wired in. Puck lights are great in darker kitchens with lots of corners to lighten up naturally dark and dull areas.

Fluorescent Strips

Fluorescent strips are a much older form of under-cabinet lighting, and while it doesn’t appeal to all tastes, it can be very effective in the right kitchen. The light from fluorescents tends to be a little brighter. Therefore, these lights are ideal for a recipe-reading light, or as a primary light in a bar or coffee-making area without the need to install stronger, overhead lights; helping maintain an ambience.

Under-cabinet lighting provides a wonderful glow, helping to make kitchens seem very warm and welcoming. Unfortunately, this atmosphere can sometimes be spoiled by the addition of direct, overhead lighting. Instead, why not consider some alternative options for kitchen lighting that better compliment this gentle glow, such as subtle pendant lights arranged over the dining table.

If you live within a 30 mile radius  of Ludlow including Leominster, Hereford, Knighton, Tenbury Wells, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Craven Arms, Church Stretton or even Bishops Castle then take a look at what we have to offer at Ludlow Homecare Kitchen Showrooms.
