Task Level lighting is ideal for Under Kitchen Cabinets for close work when a high level of illumination is required or a wide range of illumination from focus work to dimming. It provides night light or ambiance lighting when installed with a dimmer.

Activity Level lighting is ideal for Under Kitchen Cabinets in any area of the Kitchen when you need your working area to adequate light. This also provides night light or ambiance lighting when installed with a dimmer.

Accent Level lighting is ideal for Under Kitchen Cabinets for a good boost of illumination to fill out dark spaces below cabinets, corners or area with no or little natural light as well as to add general surface lighting. This is also great for a vertical mount inside of a Kitchen Cabinet with either wood shelving or glass shelving to illuminate or display the cabinet contents. Adding lighting above your Kitchen Cabinets or below with the Toe Kick enhances any kitchen design.

Puck Lighting is also another option which creates different effects on Kitchen Cabinets, Tile, Marble and Granite Backsplashes. Puck Lighting can also be used for In-Cabinet illumination above glass shelving. This is a low voltage direct current light fixture intended for indoor use only. Puck Lights come two ways either Recessed Wire Mount or Surface Wire Mount.
