Puck Lights

A versatile lighting solution, puck lighting is often used to light the inside of cabinets or as under cabinet task lighting, creating pools of light on a kitchen countertop. Most puck lights can either be surface or recess mounted into a location. We offer a wide variety of pucks, including three different light sources (LED, xenon and halogen), power sources options (hardwire, plug-in and battery powered), and both line and low voltage puck lights. Jump below to read more puck lights info, such as tips about how to install a puck light or how to achieve the best lighting effects.

Puck Lights Are a Good Choice


Puck lights are popular because they are so versatile! For example, under cabinet puck lights can be used to create pooling light highlighting specific areas on your kitchen countertop. In addition, they are popular illuminating inside display cabinets or even special home decorations. But puck lights can also be used to create broad, even illumination when spaced intermittently, and their compact shape suits them especially well to small spaces.

Different Light Sources

  • Xenon puck lights offer the most accurate color rendering and, often, the warmest light. If seeing exact colors is important to you, or you prefer warm light to complement warmer-colored rooms like red or orange, you may want to consider xenon pucks. Since they operate much cooler than halogen they can be used inside of a cabinet or display case.
  • Halogen puck lights produce light that is a bit cooler than xenon, but they actually run a lot hotter to the touch. Their color rendering is exactly as accurate as xenon lights.
  • LED puck lights typically last the longest and use the least amount of energy. While they may be more expensive than other options, the amount of energy you can save will ensure that LED puck lighting pays for itself over time. They also come in a variety of color temperatures, so you can match them to whatever paint colors or other light fixtures you already have. If you are looking for a very easy LED puck installation, or don't have a power source readily available in your install location, perhaps battery operated puck lights are the right choice for you. Since these cordless puck lights use energy-efficient LEDs as a light source they have good > battery life.

Small Size

Pucks can be used anywhere you need a little extra illumination because they fit places other lights often can't. Maybe there are a few dark niches or crannies that could really pop with some help from a little extra burst of light? Puck lights can be pretty small, but they can also emit a lot of light for their size. So don't discount them for being little - take advantage of it!

What Are Low Voltage Puck Lights?

This just means that the puck lights operate on either 12 or 24 volts. We offer both xenon and LED puck lights that are low voltage. The incoming voltage from an electrical outlet is typically 120 volts, so low voltage lights require a transformer to supply the correct voltage to the puck light.

Installation Tips

A popular question is "how far apart should I space my puck lights?" This, of course, depends on your particular puck lighting project. If you are installing puck lights to serve as under cabinet lighting, first measure the "cavity" underneath each cabinet - the area that forms a hollowed-out space. We typically recommend one puck light for every 6-10 inches of space. For projects where you are installing puck lights in a more decorative manner (i.e., illuminating collectibles, featuring items in a curio cabinet, etc.), you may want to install one puck light per shelf - or per decorative item. Make sure to check out our blog post "How Many Puck Lights Do I Need" for more help with this question at

As we have stated before, with most of our puck light kits you have the option of surface mounting or choosing to have recessed puck lights. If you are thinking about recessing your pucks make sure to check out our blog post explaining how you can do it in 8 easy steps at

Kitchen Cabinet Display Lighting Project

Nothing brightens our day (yes, pun intended) more than when our happy customers send us pictures of their completed projects. We love to show them off. Here are photos from a customer in St. Louis who used low voltage xenon puck lights in her glass front kitchen cabinets. Beautiful!
