A Guide for Choosing The Right Xenon Under Cabinet Light
Kitchens are a lot like people in that no two are exactly alike. Even when built with the exact same specifications, kitchens differ in important ways because they are essentially the heart of the home, and each home reflects the people that live there. This means there is no one-size-fits-all xenon undercounter lighting solution, because not only do cabinet sizes differ, but so do the specific lighting goals of the people who use kitchens. So how do you know what kind of light will fit your kitchen and your lifestyle? Here are a few helpful tips for choosing.
Xenon under cabinet lights are some of our best selling kitchen light fixtures because they offer beautiful, warm light and they are the most compatible with dimming technology. But they do put off some heat (although less heat than halogen under cabinet light fixtures), so take that into consideration. For example, you might want to move that stash of chocolate to a higher shelf inside the cabinet.
Our xenon undercabinet lights come in many shapes and sizes, including linear bar fixtures and puck lights. Depending on your lighting goals, each of these designs will offer you different kinds of light effects. If you want uniform, bright lighting, the linear bar fixtures will be your best bet; but if you prefer the look of pooling light, our puck lights may suit your needs better. Many of our xenon under cabinet lighting fixtures are also linkable!
Most people prefer to hardwire their lights so they can have a dedicated light switch. If selecting hardwire xenon undercabinet lights is not an option for you, we also offer plug-in varieties. Plug-in lights are useful for kitchens where a direct power source is either not available or inaccessible, like in rental properties where the landlord doesn’t want permanent fixtures added.
Our xenon under cabinet lighting options are usually available in varying lengths, wattages, and finishes to give you exactly what you need for your kitchen. You may find these resources helpful when choosing the right lighting for your project:
