Under cabinet lighting - information and advice
Under shelf lighting has been around for a few years now but the latest products are quite different from the lights that appeared under kitchen cabinets 20 years ago. Fluorescent under shelf lighting now use T4 and T5 ultra slim fluorescent tubes operating on high frequency flicker free control gear. This not only stops the pop of the lamps when they are switched on but also eliminates the flicker associated with old fluorescent fittings. Using the latest slimline fluorescent under cabinet lighting also reduces your running costs as the lamps last longer and use less energy. T5 fluorescent fittings also only use the best quality triphosphor tubes for good colour rendering i.e. meat looks red, fish looks fresh and oranges look orange.
These well engineered fluorescent under shelf light units come fitted with male plugs/female sockets at either end, making it very flexible to join and form continuous lengths of lighting.
If you have a bigger budget you could use either the more decorative halogen lights that are built into to glass plates or use some of the latest linear led solutions under your kitchen cabinets or to light the pelmet to the underside of the floor cabinets.
