When we had our kitchen done, the builders put in under-cupboard lighting. Without asking me, they put them right at the back of the cupboards, next to the wall...
We are about to replace these lights with some new ones, and I was wondering whether this was actually the best place for them. My feeling is that they would be better off nearer the front of the cupboard, so the light would come further forwards, illuminating the work surface better. Where they are now, a lot of the light is going to be lost behind the fittings.
On the other hand, I don't want to put them too far forwards, as the wooden trim that hangs down under the cupboards (which you can see at the top of the picture) would block the light.
To clarify, my interest here is in getting the maximum amount of light out of the fixtures. They will be out of sight, so aesthetics is not an issue.
Anyone able to advise? Thanks
