big thankyou to davidtay/ucl
Thank you davidtay for your recommendation for Philips ew power core LED bars. All of your posts about UCL were so helpful to me.
I finally got my lights installed on Friday. The light bars give off and diffuse a really nice bright light--perfect for task lighting. It makes such a difference I am glad I didn't go with a different light. I'm so glad I didn't use the LED strip lights that the electrician bought -they were too yellow in color. I'm not bothering to install dimmers since I have the pendants on a dimmer.
The fixtures were easy for the electrician to install & I can easily replace the individual fixture myself if necessary.
