Designer styled fixtures usually cost an arm and leg, but in this case, you'll walk away with a top end under cabinet light bar with your wallet intact. Offered in designer colors of nickel and champagne, we designed it to measure less than 1 inch thick to be hidden from view but if you want to be able to see our light bar it will stand out as a fantastic looking fixture.

    Excellent Lights

    Posted by Brian on Apr 12th 2019

    I had 3 offices with hutches that required under cabinet lighting. After researching the different brands I selected these based on the high reviews. After receiving and installing the lights I 100% agree with the high marks these lights are getting! Great price, VERY easy to install, excellent quality, look great, good selection, nice bright light and easy to connect in series. I also like how easy it is to install a power cord versus direct wire. 100% highly satisfied. I will definitely be ordering many more as grow into the adjacent offices.

    Posted by Roger on Apr 11th 2019

    Remodeled kitchen, wife fought me on the idea of putting lights under her new cabinets. Bought the hardwired version. Easy wiring, and mounting. All of our friends "Ooh & Aww!" when we turn them on. The wife just smirks at me! Great style, and price.
