IF you're only going to choose just one lighting feature to add your kitchen, make it LED under cabinet lighting. It provides task lighting for your countertops to make them ideal for food preparation and cooking, it illuminates the backsplash on your wall to create beautiful accent lighting, and it can also be used as night lighting for your kitchen. Once you install under cabinet lighting, you'll never want to go back.
Many lighting designers talk about creating "layers of light" for your kitchen. Under cabinet lighting serves as a crucial "layer" for great design.

It's a good idea to choose your light source first.
If you're looking for the most energy efficient option, go with LEDs, which with the Quattro controller are dimmable. LEDs are also cool to the touch and will last for 50,000 hours before needing replacement (that's almost six years). Consider your future savings in energy, LED under cabinet lights start to make a lot of sense. They also give off a brilliant light that is very appealing for kitchen design.
