Puck lights, which get their name from their hockey puck-like shape, are one of the most versatile light fixtures around. They fit almost anywhere and can function as under cabinet task lighting, display lighting, and even safety lighting.
If you’re still in the dark about how many puck lights you need for your next lighting project, just follow these guidelines.
First, determine what you’re going to use your puck lighting to illuminate.
For even lighting under cabinets or along bookshelves…
We recommend using 1 puck light for every 6-10 inches of cabinet or shelf space. If you’re lighting 11-18 inches of space, use 2-3 puck lights. For 19-26 inches, you’ll need 3-4 puck lights. For 27-34 inches, 4-5 puck lights. For 35-42 inches, 5-7 puck lights. For 43-50 inches, 6-8 puck lights, and so on. Just measure your space and divide it up accordingly! (more…)
