Where Under Cabinet Lighting Works Best
Puck lights and cabinet lights are at home under kitchen cabinets and counters, shining useful atmospheric lighting on dishware and utility space. They are the ideal source of task lighting, perfect for making sure you pick up on every single line of your favorite recipe. Or use them to add an ambient touch of light to counters that will pair well with suspensions or wall lights in the room. But under cabinet lighting doesn't have to be restricted just to the kitchen. This style of accent lighting is also handy for the office space. Many office desks benefit from the addition of bright downlighting, making computer screens and paperwork much easier to see, avoiding eye strain and fatigue. And if you have storage cabinets in your garage, light bars and puck lights are great options for adding illumination over workbenches, too.

Other Great Options
Counter illumination from accent lights should only be one element of your kitchen's lighting design. Look to additional fixtures to dress up the space with. Appropriate kitchen lighting can be comprised of pendants, island lighting, wall sconces and a ceiling fan if you need to keep air moving around the room. And as another form of accent lighting, consider picture lights for the living room and dining room. Picture and display lights are great ways of drawing attention to works of art and creating new layers of illumination in the home.
