Under Cabinet Lighting


A kitchen is a brighter, more pleasant place to work when its counter tops are illuminated by under-cabinet lighting. Under-cabinet lighting provides a sparkling decorative effect and gives you excellent task lighting. Under cabinet lighting brings an unobstructed light to work surfaces as opposed to light coming from behind, creating shadows.

Under cabinet lighting is a great way to add distinction and style to any kitchen or work area. Under Cabinet Lighting offers shadow-free lighting for Kitchen and work areas. The use of Task Lighting, Disk Lighting or Ambiance Low Voltage Linear Lighting is a great way accent all your prized possessions.

Every residential architect knows that each home design requires a carefully planned kitchen, and every kitchen will need cabinets with lights. Countertop areas underneath display cabinets are very important. They serve both a decorative function as well as a practical purpose. Shadows underneath cabinets are both unattractive, and they can also make working with knives and other kitchen implements unsafe if visibility is obscured too much.

Cabinet lighting strips are now much smaller than the generic types of competing fixtures available. They are easy to conceal beneath the forward undersurface of even the most ornate and custom cabinetry. Special glare shields in the linear strips direct the light backward away from the eyes. This minimizes reflective glare and creates a more even distribution of light under the kitchen cabinet. Dimmer controls allow the homeowner to make further adjustments, literally fine tuning illumination over countertops to match that of general lighting in the room. This makes for superior aesthetic qualities and more comfortable environment for food preparation, parties, and other special hosted gatherings..
