The most popular under cabinet lighting is LED lighting. There are several reasons for this, such as LED technology is fantastic at producing a large amount of light whilst using a small amount of power. LED light fittings also produce very little heat, which is ideal in the kitchen environment. Lastly, they are a great long term saving option over traditional lighting options such as fluorescent tubes.
LED Strip lights are simple to install under cabinet kitchen lighting options, due to their flat design taking up little space.
Under-cabinet lights are best to install in the front rather than the back of the unit. It's important to double-check the direction during installation, due to light from the fitting being distributed unevenly across your kitchen if the under-cabinet light is fitted backwards. This can result in unwanted dark spots and shadows. Avoid this by simply installing your lighting in the front to get the stylish task lighting you desire for your kitchen.
