What is Under Cabinet Lighting?

under-cabinet-lightingJust like it sounds, under cabinet lighting installations are lights that have been placed under cabinets. These lights create a focused lighting option over counter spaces and workspaces.

Under cabinet lighting should be as slim and low profile as possible. You’ll still want plenty of room to complete kitchen tasks. You’ll also want lights that are focused but not too bright. There are many different options to choose from to get just the right lighting for your kitchen or workspace.

  • LED– LED under cabinet lights come in multiple options. They can be easily installed light strips, plugins or wired lighting, with our without dimming. Strips are easier to install and use batteries but don’t last as long as your plugins or wired lighting. LED wired installations cost more money in the beginning but save more money as you use them. LED’s are being most popular in recent years due to lower energy consumption and low heat output. Most common are:

    • LED rope or tape
    • LED recessed trims
    • LED under cabinet lights

  • under-cabinet-lightingHalogen– Halogen lights come in many different sizes and varieties for under cabinet lighting. Most often, they are puck containers wired into the cabinetry. Halogen lights create softer pools of warm lighting, making them perfect for layering in any room. Depending on your task, you may feel that they are not bright enough. However, halogen lights last longer and cost less after initial installation costs.
  • Flourescents-Traditionally popular, fluorescent under cabinet lighting can be more difficult to change due to unusual light bulb or tube sizes. They are also less energy efficient than Halogen or LED lights. The light that is given off is also less attractive than either Halogen or LED lighting. These light were very popular a decade ago, but recently fluorescents are being replaced with all recessed LED or Halogen cans.

Each of these options can be used with dimmers to make them more flexible for lighting needs. They can also be layered to create the perfect kitchen lighting design.

In Cabinet Lighting

While you’re thinking of under cabinet lighting, it’s important to consider the option of in-cabinet lighting. These lights are placed sleekly inside cabinets. They can be used in glass cabinets to showcase favorite items or even in pantry cabinets and under sinks to provide better lighting for hard to see areas. Pucks or light strips are usually used for in-cabinet lighting and display lighting. In cabinet lighting is great for kitchen cabinets, pantries, studies, offices or any place you store a lot of items.

I come from a perspective of "things happen." And unfortunately something did. When I called Nipper, a he-said, she-said situation arose with my tenant that could have turned ugly. Nipper didn't go there. I was very pleased with the way they responded to my call. Now I could see how they handled an adverse situation. And I get be them very High marks! I have several rentals; and I will definitely used them again. Their pricing is very fair.read more

Reasonable price, quality work and exceptional customer service/relations! My wife and I were expecting a baby any day when we encountered an electrical issue in the nursery that we needed fixed as soon as possible. I called Nipper Electric and Trey Nipper called me back 10 minutes later. They were able to send out a technician who found and fixed the issue the same day. Given our busy schedule with baby planning, it was a relief to work with a company like Nipper who took care of our issue quickly. We will definitely be using Nipper Electric in the future. If you are in the search for an electrician, your search is over... just give Nipper Electric a call.read more

Nipper Electric is by far the best electrician company I have ever hired. Trey and his guys ROCK! They do such exemplary work every time. Last fall, they rewired practically our entire home and modernized our system in the walls, meters, lighting, ceiling fans, outlets, under-counter lighting. You name it; they do it. Such a class act and so professional, GRADE "A" WORK. I can't say enough about this organization and their crew. From start to finish, they dealt with all the inspections, went above and beyond the norm. We just had Nipper Electric back at our home yesterday with outside lighting, more indoor work, and, once again, their work is exceptional. My Mom hired them to rework her under-counter lighting that was put in by another "not-up-to-par" electrician less than a year ago. She was so unhappy with her only 9-month old under-counter lighting that she decided to hire Nipper Electric because of the great work they did for my brother and me. And she is so happy with her new under-counter lighting replacement by Nipper Electric. She only wishes my brother and I had found them before she had her kitchen lighting installed. She's so happy now! And my brother and I are again giving rave reviews to Nipper Electric. Thank you Trey, Zach and Jessie. We feel like you guys are friends now! Thanks, Nancy Y. Smithread more

I was extremely impressed with this company, beginning with the VP, Trey, who came to my home to assess my particular situation, which was to convert a Fiberstars fiberoptic pool light to an LED light. Trey is highly intelligent and willing to take the time to research the situation at hand and study the data I had managed to collect for this undertaking. The electricians, Zack and Jessie, who came to do the work were also highy professional, congenial, hard-working, and knowledgeable and completed the task iwith exceptional efficiency in spite of the fact that they had never done such a conversion before. I am delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend Nipper Electric for any of your electrical needs.read more

Trey and Zack installed a variety of lights all over our home. The installation included wall sconces, recessed ceiling lights, combo bathroom exhaust/light fans, and under counter kitchen led lights. Their work was very professionally done, without any setbacks. They cleaned up after the job was finished and left our house spotless. You can't go wrong with this company.read more
