Adding kitchen under counter lighting to your kitchen is an inexpensive upgrade that makes your kitchen more inviting and more functional. Kitchen under counter lighting is essential to the aesthetics of general kitchen lighting and provides much needed illumination for kitchen tasks. Kitchen under counter lighting can provide two functions in your kitchen. It can provide task lighting for countertop food preparation and accent lighting to highlight your countertops and backsplash. When choosing kitchen under counter lighting you have a few options available. You can go with either a small direct spot light or full length recessed fluorescent tubes. Both offer an attractive look to accent the kitchen. It just boils down to personal choice.
