The kitchen is primarily a work area, but it is also a gathering place for family and friends. Lighting that is comfortable as well as functional is required.
Under cabinet/ under shelf lights offer both task and accent lighting. Under cabinet lighting is designed to light a countertop or show off prized possessions in a display cabinet. The most energy efficient undercabinet lighting is LED strip or tape lighting. LED strip lighting is rapidly replacing traditional fluorescent lighting thanks to its ease of installation, warm color temperature and low profile.
Pendants can provide both task and general lighting. They can be LED, xenon or halogen, indirect or direct lighting with shades or globes to avoid glare, and they are suspended from the ceiling over dinette tables, game tables, kitchen counters, or other work areas. The use of a dimmer control gives you the flexibility to vary the light to suit the occasion. The use of mini pendants has become very popular from both a good lighting perspective, as well as to bring together the rest of the room.
