Under Cabinet Lighting at Dining Counter

wobbly1905July 18, 2012

Our peninsula will have wall cabinets suspended from the ceiling above the peninsula. It will have an extended counter for use as a dining area. The current design has thin under cabinet fluorescent fixtures attached to the suspended cabinet bottoms. The cabinets have valences and longer cabinet doors to hide the view of the light fixture sides when viewed while standing. My wife opines that the fluorescent fixtures will be ugly when viewed by people seated at the extended peninsula counter. Further, she considers the fluorescents to be "old" technology and she thinks the plastic lenses are ugly. She says that she wants the under cabinet lights to be recessed in a finished cabinet bottom.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

For the latest you could take a look at the UniLume LED. They are also pretty pricey.
