T5 LED Linear Fixture vs LED Strips for Kitchen Lighting
I need to find linear lighting for my mom's kitchen and am having difficulty trying to find a solution that will fit our requirements for brightness, weight, and ease of replacement in the future. I am in between something like an LED T5 and LED strips. This will be for area lighting near the ceiling that will replace the current T12 LEDs.
Based on the details provided, we might recommend our CENTRIC HOME™ LED Strip Lights for Home & Residential product. This product is available in the 2700K and 3000K color temperatures, which are the most commonly recommended color temperature options for kitchens and living areas.
Though the T5 Linear Light Fixtures are indeed convenient to install, it might be helpful to know that they can only be powered by DC wall plugs and utilize individual power switches. As such, they may not be convenient for daily use in high-traffic areas such as kitchens.
The LED Strip Lights can be powered by an in-wall TRIAC dimmable power supply and can be controlled using in-wall dimmers. They can also be easily mounted along the ceiling using the Aluminum Channel for LED Flex Strip product, which is available in both flat and corner versions. The LED strip lights also have a 3-year warranty and can be fairly easily detached from the mounting channels and replaced using rubbing alcohol in case they experience any failure or malfunction.
I have attached a few layout diagrams below, as well as other instructional posts from our website for your review:
