UCL and Black honed granite top

sbkimJune 26, 2012

I am in process of planning out UCL for my kitchen with black honed granite top. I am fearing economic LED setup may not yield enough light due to dark non-reflective surface. Should I consider florescent lighting instead?

Not sure what economic LED lights are. Whether you use fl, led or xenon the light level should be comparable if the lumens are similar. Remember that ucl is used to light the work and not give microscopic views of the counter material.

I have the same lighting as yours and it works very well for me. I don't think the granite top will make much difference
