What should I consider when choosing under cabinet lights?
First, consider the style and colour of your kitchen, then choose the correct colour temperature to suit eg.
Traditional colour like brown, cream etc. – warm white under cabinet would work best.
For Modern and contemporary style kitchens – natural white under cabinet works best.
Warm White (<3800K) - Warmer whites are generally preferred for creating a more relaxed environment in dining, living or reception areas.
Cool White (3900K-5800K) - Cool white is a good choice for retail and office environments where a simulated natural, outdoor light is preferred. Use in modern contemporary kitchens and bathrooms to complement the décor.
Daylight White (>5900K) - Perfect for industrial and healthcare applications where the most natural lighting is required.
