Under cabinet lights
are a type of incredibly versatile lighting products that can be used to highlight items, serve as aesthetic accents that complement other lighting sources, or provide task, safety, and even ambient lighting. These products are too often underestimated in terms of the benefits they can provide. Under-cabinet lighting provides task lighting to supplement the overall ambient lighting for functional work areas such as kitchen counters, closets, display cabinets, and bookshelves. Under-cabinet lighting therefore reduces shadows cast by the cabinets that may otherwise occur if only overhead lighting is available. Under-cabinet lights are also designed to give a decorative accent that adds a layer of depth to an interior space and highlights decorative features. LED under-cabinet lights come in numerous styles and features such as linear and puck styles, recessed and surface mounting, plug-in, hardwired, and battery power supply, and touch sensor dimmer, mechanical door contact, and push button on/off switching. LED linear under cabinet lights, including flexible LED strips
and modular LED light bars
, are long, and stretch the entire length of cabinets. Puck lights are round, singular fixtures that create a scallop effect between each puck and provide concentrated pools of light under cabinets.
