I am renovating my kitchen and ready to install under-cabinet dimmable LED lights. I have read everything I could find on the Internet that you have written or done video about to guide me. I think you recommend 2700K and 90 CRI, but I cannot find a company that offers this. Could you please give me some guidance regarding sources?

I'm confident that there are other manufacturers that offer similar products, too. Just make sure that they dim smoothly, have a CRI of 90 or higher, and have a color temperature that is comfortable for you. I'm partial to warmer colors that are close in feel to incandescent light, which is why I...
