Reducing LED Lighting Glare on Granite or Quartz Surfaces in the Kitchen


Here at Inspired LED we occasionally
get phone calls about lighting glare on granite and
similar surfaces. For now we’ll call it that dot effect. Granite is like a mirror and whatever
light you put above it, it will reflect. Whether it be an LED
strip or you use some type of diffuser. Here we will discuss how you
can eliminate this effect while keeping the same amount of light.
underneath your cabinets. First, if you have cabinets with frames, use a tool such as a oscillating multi-tools saw attachment to cut about a quarter to a half-inch notch. Then, measure the legnth of your cabinets and subtract one and a half inches from each side to enable the power supply or additional
cables to be plugged into the end of the strips. Place your flex strip on the lip of the
cabinet facing the backsplash. Use masking tape to temporarily place
the flex strips before using the adhesive backing. The half inch knot allows you to run one continuous strip along your cabinet lip and the strips are flexible enough to
bend around corners. Plug in your power supply to ensure
perfect lighting placement. If you like your flex strip replacement,
secure with the adhesive backing. Now, your LEDs are facing the backsplash. Inspired LED’s lights will give you enough under cabinet lighting plus, eliminates the
glare, or dot effect, on granite and other similar surfaces. Questions? Email us at [email protected] or visit our website at www.inspiredled.com

  1. I'm confused.  This video looks like the lights are being installed on top of the lower cabinets and under the counter top.  Please explain.  Thanks
