Under cabinet lights are an invaluable addition to any kitchen, office space or shelving unit. Under cabinet lights are perfect if you are looking for task lighting. Typically, under cabinet lights are attached to the bottom of a wall mounted cabinet.
There are four different types of under cabinet lights available: round lights (puck lights), strips lights or linear lights. Also, under cabinet lighting options are available as fluorescent or LED.
Round Lights (Puck Lights)
The round under cabinet lights resemble hockey pucks. They are often a popular choice because of the easy installation (can be plugged in instead of wired into the house). There are also battery operated models available. Perfect for kitchen remodels where budget is an issue.
Under cabinet lights are thin bands of plastic where small bulbs are built right into the plastic and like round lights they are another affordable option that does not have to be wired to the house. Slim fluorescent fixtures are small enough and light enough to be mounted at the front of the cabinets just behind the face frames. Their directional light can be controlled.
Linear Lights (Rope Lights)
These linear lights are thinner than the other options. Since they are thinner and also flexible, they are easier to install and more pleasing to the eye because they are less likely to be seen. They are not efficient in a sense as compared to other lights because they do provide as much light, but they are mainly used to compliment or accent other lighting in the room.
