Because they do not produce heat like many standard light bulbs, LED lights are a good option for overhead lighting in the kitchen. LED lights also have other benefits, including saving energy and reducing maintenance time and costs.
LED lights are available in a variety of color tones, temperatures and brightness levels, allowing consumers to choose the best option for their kitchens. LEDs typically last about 25,000 hours and use approximately 85 percent less energy over their lifespan when compared to traditional lighting. LED lights instantly turn on to their full brightness, and they do not buzz or hum. Besides overhead lighting, LEDs work well for under-cabinet and accent lighting.
