I don't know anything about under counter lights. So whats the best type of undercounter light and which brand or brands?
You might consider looking at solutions from such web sites as
to name a few. I would steer away from stores like ikea, Lowes, Home Depot and Lamps Plus
I recently had GMlighting.net LED strip lights installed. They were the high output 3 watts/foot version. They seem very nice and are quite bright. I would not go any brighter then 3 w/ft. I am looking a spending more to dim them (diff power supply and dimmer switch). Std output lights are half the power, I think I would want brighter then that, but can't say for sure.
I wouldn't suggest GM because I don't think you can buy them on the Inet, and they seem expensive.
I'd recommend the LED.
Maxim, GM and Kichler all have good ones.
Now that the backsplash tile is installed the 3 watts/foot LED lights do not seem as bright, seem just right. Need to use them for more time to be sure.
One negative is looking into the counters you see all the little dots of light. that would be true for any undercab lights.
The GM Lighting is fine stuff, but have to buy at local electrical supply houses. Some of it is special order. I would probably order an Internet product.
BTW the lights are called "Under _Cabinet_" and not "Under Counter".
