A Brief Look At Available Under Cabinet Light Choices
Under Cabinet lighting is typically added under a cabinet, shelf, or a similar surface so as to provide or produce a much localized lighting on a work surface. It is also worth mentioning that under cabinet lighting can also double as some form of night light.
For residential use, there are basically three types of under cabinet lighting. These are incandescent under cabinet lighting, fluorescent under cabinet lighting and LED under cabinet lighting. Generally, the type of lamp used will dictate the style of the lamp and its performance in terms of the amount of light emitted, the amount of energy used, the color and the overall life of the lamp.
Incandescent lamps are by far the most popular and are therefore quite easy to find. They are also relatively inexpensive to purchase and are very easy to replace. Their main undoing though is on their short lifespan and the amount of energy they consume.
Fluorescent under cabinet lights are also quite popular, they have good light color and they are also good for color rendering. They also don’t flicker and don’t turn on instantly. These lights have a long life, experience high efficacy, are bright and are known to provide some uniform lighting. It is also worth noting that some fluorescent fixture designs are neither narrow nor small enough to be fully concealed without some modification on the cabinet trip molding.
LED lights are the latest in the under cabinet lightings offerings. These LEDs are known to last for more than ten years and do not typically burn out. Because they are relatively new in the market they tend to be slightly more expensive. The color offerings can also be a tad too dull for the liking of some so it is advisable to check them first in-store. Some models may also require you to have an external transformer which can be a bit bulky, so it is important to confirm the model or type of LED lighting you are opting for.
