Puck lights are popular and versatile! Under cabinet puck lights can be used to highlight specific areas on your kitchen countertop, creating an attractive pool of light. Use them to illuminate the inside of display cabinets or even decorative objects. Puck lights can also be used to create even illumination over a large area when spaced intermittently, and their compact shape makes them ideal for small spaces.
Pucks can fit places other lights often can't. If your architecture contains nooks and crannies that could benefit from a burst of light, pucks may be the answer. Though small, they can also emit a lot of light for their size.
What Are Low Voltage Puck Lights?
This means the lights operate on either 12 or 24 volts. The incoming voltage from an electrical outlet is typically 120 volts, so low voltage lights require a transformer to supply the correct voltage to the puck light.
How far apart to space your puck lights depends on your particular puck lighting project. If you are installing puck lights as under cabinet lighting, first measure the "cavity" underneath each cabinet. We typically recommend one puck light for every 6-10 inches of space. If you are installing puck lights in a more decorative manner you may want to install one puck light per shelf or decorative item.
