Useful Undercounter Kitchen Lighting
Undercounter kitchen lighting casts a pleasing glow in the kitchen. It also adds task lighting where you need it most. Mounting lights under the counter reduces the chances of shadows interfering with the light source. The continuous source of light allows you to easily prepare meals, decorate pasties and handle other kitchen tasks. There are several options for under cabinet light sources. Fluorescent fixtures have long been used for general lighting sources for several reasons. Fluorescents were originally conceived as overhead lights whose energy efficiency made it possible to operate them for long hours with lower energy costs and longer lamp life. Fluorescent undercounter kitchen lighting is the segmented fixtures that install in series beneath the rear of the cabinet. These segments vary in length depending on manufacturer and fixture type. In an ideal situation, a series of segments can be installed that will fit from end to end along the back undersurface of the cabinet, evenly distribute lighting across the countertop.
