Kitchen Remodel - LED Uplighting & Under Cabinet Lighting

judi82May 31, 2010

Now that I've settled on LR6 down-lights, I need to focus on dimmable up-lighting and dimmable under cabinet lighting.

I am interested in a LED swivel tube produced by Diode LED. The tube's mounting clips allow you to position the tube at the exact angle you need. A 20 inch tube has an energy usage of 3.6 watts and produces 185 lumens. I like the idea of being able to adjust the direction of the light source, but these swivel tubes only come in 3000 K and I have decided on 2700 K downlights. Will the difference in kleven made a noticeable difference? Should all light sources in the kitchen be the same kleven?

Are there other choices/types of LED up- and under-cab lighting that would make more sense?

Yes, there will be a difference in that the light will be whiter.

I don't think all light sources need to be of the same color.

I used neutral white under cabinet lighting (environmentallights) and LR6 can lights.

As for other choices of LED, you could take a look at They have warm white under cabinet lighting as well. Note that there are a number of other resellers who carry the exact same LED strips. -,, ...
