Why We Love Kitchen Under Cabinet Lighting
Modern kitchens benefit from ample lighting and an under cabinet lighting system can help you ensure your space is properly lit. Kitchen under cabinet lighting can also provide a significant source of focused light to highlight elements of your kitchen counters that might be missed by a chandelier or pendant light. Whether you are looking for something decorative or purely functional to light your kitchen counters, you will find a great assortment of under cabinet fixtures here.
Under cabinet lights are an accenting type of light that are much appreciated in modern kitchens. While most kitchens fulfill their lighting needs with overhead ceiling lights and wall-mounted lights, under cabinet and under counter systems bring bright, highly focused light to your countertops. When cooking, following a recipe or simply wanting to show off your countertops, this style of accent lighting is a go-to choice. And most under cabinet lights are LED too, helping you keep the space as energy efficient as possible.
A Kitchen Under Cabinet Light for Every Style
Under cabinet lighting works well in kitchens that already have a significant source of light from a combination of wall lamps and ceiling lights. These under cabinet designs simply complement your existing kitchen light fixtures and help to illuminate counter spaces with a source of bright, LED-powered light. Under cabinet systems like the Legrand Adorne Under Cabinet Lighting System allow you to easily update your existing lighting scheme with functional light from a variety of cohesive fixtures and accessories. There's even a Tablet Cradle available for you to place your iPad or other device when testing out a new recipe. Or, consider a complete under cabinet system from WAC. Similar to Legrand's system, WAC provides everything you need to illuminate your counters. And finally, look to Tech Lighting's collection for sleek, contemporary fixtures that complement the modern kitchen.
Choosing the Best Kitchen Under Cabinet Light System
Functionality is key to finding the right under cabinet fixtures. With so many options to accent your kitchen's counters, you'll want to take a step back and decide what is going to be the right fit for your space. You'll find interconnecting light bars, puck lights and button lights, not to mention all of the cool accessories that go with their respective systems. The under cabinet and under counter light fixtures featured in this selection can all be direct wired into your existing electrical system. While some under cabinet lighting can be battery operated, direct wire fixtures will be easier for you to maintain. And should you need to add more to your system, a variety of connectors and the necessary under cabinet lighting hardware is available too.

Under cabinet lighting is just one small way to appropriately illuminate your kitchen. You'll also want to consider filling your kitchen with light from a pendant or chandelier, recessed lighting or a ceiling fan with an integrated light kit. A mix of fixtures for the space can help tie its design together. And if you need a pendant to shine light above your counters, look to the selection of island lighting. Island pendants and linear chandeliers take on a rectangular shape to provide a spread of light over kitchen counters. Lastly, control the light output of your under cabinet system by placing it on a dimmer switch.
