Maybe believe the future of residential lighting lies with the LED. Energy Star states that LED lights are a "natural fit for cutting-edge renovation, new construction projects, or do-it-yourself upgrades. ENERGY STAR qualified residential LED lighting uses at least 75% less energy, lasts 25 times longer than incandescent lighting and provides optimal light color."
AK has been using LED under-cabinet lights for many of our Atlanta remodeling projects for quite some time because of their energy efficiency, long bulb life-span and because they produce 95% less heat than a normal incandescent bulb. The cooler bulb and fixture is better for the cabinetry, and better for the fingers trying to change the light bulb! There are other ways to use LED lighting in the kitchen, and K+BB featured several of them this month on their website. See K+BB's fabulous LED finds below:
