The Commercial Electric Under-Cabinet Light has a slim one-inch profile so you’ll barely see it when it’s mounted underneath your kitchen cabinets, and you control the light with an on/off rocker switch. Reviewers say these lights are a must-have if you want a bright, visible kitchen countertop. Many people like the range of sizes and note that the fixtures are lightweight, dimmable and easy to install.
And, like surface lights, pendant lights will need a periodic cleaning to remove the visible dust that they collect. Recessed, surface and pendant lights are all available in models that accept a wide range of light bulbs. If you have a particular type of lamp (light bulb) in mind for your general kitchen lighting, such as an MR-16 Halogen bulb, then you will need to shop for fixtures that will take that lamp.
Like LED light bars, rope lights are best used for countertop task lighting. Rope lights are also easy to install: they can be discreetly hung underneath a row of cabinets with a set of rope mounts that screw directly into the cabinetry. One of the fastest ways to give a spec kitchen new style is to swap out the standard ceiling fixture for something with a little more personality. A flush-mount fixture with decorative details — like this drum light with geometric cutouts — is a dramatic addition that only requires a few twists of a screwdriver.
