New dilemma: under the counter lighting!
December 11, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hi, everyone! Need your assistance, once again. I would like to put in under the counter lighting and am running into yet another dilemma. My countertop is going to be Silestone Stellar Night which is shiny with specks of mirror in it. I know my choices are Zenon, flourescent, and LED. I hate flourescent, Zenon gets hot, but the LED strip lights were my choice. I'm learning that the "tape" that is used to stick to the cabinet won't hold up to the heat and moisture. I'm also concerned, as with all the lighting choices, that the reflection of the actual light is going to show on the countertop, instead of casting a dispersed light. Not sure to put it in the front or back, as I would like a scalloped effect, I think you get from the pucks, but am concerned that the height of the moulding isn't enough to hit them. Do I sound frustrated? Thanks!
