Customer Lighting Project – Xenon Line Voltage Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights

If you’re shopping around for under cabinet lighting, check out these customer photos of our Xenon Line Voltage Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights:

“Just wanted to share with you the results of the Xenon Line Voltage Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights that I ordered from you. We absolutely love them and they’ve made a huge improvement to our kitchen. I was worried that the light would be a bright, unwelcoming color, but they put off a beautiful, warm glow. We placed them towards the front of the cabinet for task lighting and I’m very happy with that choice as well.”

Lighting Tips for Home Gyms

Light = Energy
Poorly lit home gyms tend to lack energy whereas a bright space with a generous amount of light is generally more inviting for exercise and can be crucial to creating just the right environment for a vigorous or energetic workout.

Natural Light is Best
Natural light coming from plenty of windows and skylights is the best source of light for a home gym. If the natural light in your home gym is only minimal or non-existent, try using good fluorescent lighting that emulates sunlight. This means that the fluorescent light bulbs should have a high color temperature of 5000K-5500K and very good color rendering of 82 or higher.

Customer Lighting Project: Xenon Line Voltage Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights

Kitchen remodel – copper & walnut counter tops (yes, copper!), cream cabinets, a new refrigerator, oven, sink, and Xenon Line Voltage Thin Under Cabinet Lights. These xenon light fixtures are extremely low-profile (less than 1 inch thick) and give off a bright warm white light. Xenon is always a great option for under cabinet lighting because it’s dimmable, lasts longer than halogen, and doesn’t give off as much heat as halogen.
