LED Under Cabinet Lighting For Your Kitchen Solution
Under cabinet lighting casts a pleasing glow in the kitchen. Under cabinet lighting can provide two functions in your kitchen. It can provide task lighting for countertop food preparation and accent lighting to highlight your countertops and backsplash. In the past, any under cabinet lighting that was featured in homes was made possible by fluorescent light bulbs. While this type of lighting does provide a different style and feel from standard lighting, replacing the bulbs can prove difficult. One major advantage to LED under cabinet lighting is the convenience of never having to replace a light bulb. LED lights are guaranteed to last over 40K hours. This pretty much equals a lifetime unless your light usage is off the meter!
Another advantage is the energy efficient manner in which the lights are made. LED lights are made 3 watts and as a result usually result in over 65% energy savings. Although the lights are low voltage, they provide evenly distributed light. While these lights are not harsh and bright, they will highlight the natural beauty in the color of your counter tops. After all, LED under cabinet lighting may be a new option in the world of kitchen lighting, but it is quickly becoming a favorite.
