ERIC STROMER: How important is it to use topnotch materials? What do you think?
Now, let’s take the kitchen. The right under-cabinet lighting can make all the difference in the world. I’m Eric Stromer. Here’s your GMC Trade Secret.
There are a tremendous amount of options when it comes to under-counter lighting. Now, if you’re into energy efficiency, this LED lighting system is a great one. Now, it’s a little bit more expensive up front, but it more than pays for itself over time.
Now, the bulbs have a longer life. It is very energy-efficient. It burns a little bit cooler than traditional halogen lighting. And it is dimmable. So it’s a great option, the LED lighting system.
Now, let’s talk about halogen. This system burns very, very bright. It’s also very hot. It’s not as energy-efficient as some of the other choices, but it’s a beautiful dimmable light. So if you’re into the aesthetics of a kitchen, boy, this is a great option.
Now let’s talk about fluorescents. This is a great option. It definitely burns cool. The only problem, it’s not dimmable. But it is very, very energy-efficient and it’s a great option for anybody who does want under-counter lighting but doesn’t want to produce heat.
Now, this last choice is called xenon lighting. Now, this is a great middle-of-the-road option. It’s hotter than fluorescent but not as hot as halogen. It’s also less expensive than LEDs, and it saves more energy than your standard incandescent lighting. So if you want a middle-of-the-road option, xenon is your best bet.
As you can see, there are a tremendous amount of under-counter lighting options. And I’ll tell you, it really does enhance the look and feel of any kitchen space.
