LED Undercabinet Lighting Needs

Posted by amyv87 (My Page) on

I am replacing halogen puck lights with LED lights under my kitchen cabinets. I currently have 3 halogen puck lights in a 36" space over my sink and 1 each under 15", 20" and 18" cabinets. What length or amount of LED lights do I needs? I will be using direct wire units. Thanks.

RE: LED Undercabinet Lighting Needs

If you're looking for a uniformly lit countertop, the best approach would be to minimize the size and number of gaps between the individual bars. The best direct wire so far is the Philips profile strip.

As for the length, it all depends on how the bars are joined.

Have you taken a look at the thread below? It should be pretty comprehensive.
