Maxlite - 18 or 33 LED Lights?

sarendsFebruary 3, 2013

We are getting ready to add Maxlite LED lights to our kitchen for our under cabinet lights. We are going with the warm rather than the cool lights. We are also going dimmable. Does anyone have an opinion on whether we should go with 18 LEDs per foor or 33?

Thanks!

The maximum output is affected by the number of LEDs per ft. If you think that you need high brightness, 33 may be the way to go (>400 lumens per ft) eg- attempting indirect lighting from under the cabinet instead of having the lights point straight down.

From a practical standpoint - 18 would be sufficient (~ 290 lumens per ft).
