  • Elegant, Simple, and Budget Friendly LED Under Cabinet Lights

    Who is ready to remodel that kitchen? Maybe you need extra light to meal prep, or you want to host a fabulous dinner party now that we can have people over.  Under-cabinet lighting is an excellent option for that touch of class in your kitchen. Sadly, not all under cabinet fixtures are the same and choosing the right one can be daunting. Join us as we discuss some of the key features to look for when selecting an under cabinet fixture.

    Overall Construction:

    Even though this fixture is hidden under your cabinet, the quality of the fixture is important. No one wants to buy a fixture only to replace it years later due to poor craftsmanship. Our under cabinet fixture comes in two colors: white or bronze. It is well made and intended to last well into your next bout of creativity. Not only is the fixture made to last, but it is simple and elegant. 

     

     

    Compatible Lengths:

    Cabinets come in varying lengths to accommodate our creativity as well as functionality in our kitchen. No one wants to locate the perfect fixture just to find out that it only comes in two lengths. Fortunately, our undercabinet fixture comes in 9”, 12”, 18”, 24”, 34”, 42”, and 46-inch lengths. Now that the lengths are covered, what about color temperature?

Whether you like a cooler or warmer-looking kitchen, we got you covered.  With our fixture, you can switch between 3000K (warmest), 3500K, and 4000K (coolest).  Now you don’t have to buy a new fixture or swap out a light bulb just to change the color temp.

     

     

     

     

    The nitty-gritty:

    This information may be more interesting to your electrician, but the details are important when selecting a fixture. Our 1⅛” by 3 ½” LED fixture has an excellent color rendering of 90CRI along with an average life of 50,000 hours. It can be dimmed from 10% to 100%.

  • 4 Ways to Save Lots of Money on Your Next Track Lighting Project

    As more and more states are lifting capacity restrictions, we are seeing an uptick in track lighting projects. Whether these businesses are remodeling or starting new, we know businesses have limited resources and time to get things up and running. For some time now, 8’ track has been the go-to length for many commercial track lighting projects. But what if there was a way to be under budget on your next project?  We have 4 reasons why you should consider using 6’, 4’, or even 2’ power track lengths in your next project. 

    The Takeaway

    1 - Using shorter lengths of track on your project is usually less expensive than using 8’ track

    2 - 6’ track suffers less damage when shipping and has a smaller minimum order requirement than 8’ track.

    3 - By using our 2’, 4’, and 6’  power track lengths, you can build almost any configuration

    4 - 6’ track uses the same number of hanging points if you are using our suspension system.

     

    Using 6’ power track saves money

     

    If you could save over $200 dollars on your project, would you? Of course! Let’s say you are installing a 48-foot track system. As per the graphic, eight pieces of 6’ track will cost approximately $300; whereas, six pieces of 8’ foot track will cost over $500. 

     

    48ft power track cost

    Since both systems come in a single box, why is the 8' track system more expensive? The simple answer: shipping. Because no one wants to ship a 101-inch long box, shipping carriers charge fees to discourage it. If you want more information on the intricacies of shipping, check out our “The True Costs of Free Shipping” video.

     

    Increase Shipping Damages

     

    damaged power track shipping boxHave you ever tried shipping a 101 inch tube weighing about 3 pounds? Well, it is not pretty. Due to the hardware needed to install the track, the 8’ track comes in a 101 inch long tube. A single piece of track doesn’t do well on the conveyor belt or transport trucks. For this reason we have a minimum quantity requirement. We found that six or more pieces of 8’ track transport better than one to five. 

     

    However, even with our special care to packing, the track can arrive damaged. Imagine getting a  box like this the day before installation. Nothing is more frustrating and costly than damaged materials.

    When Time is Money

Besides the hundreds of dollars of savings from shipping and damages, shorter lengths are easier to install. Trying to manage an 8’ long wobbly track can get quite tiresome, believe me. What if you want to suspend your track? Well, we got you covered there too. 6’ track uses the same number of hanging points when using our track lighting suspension system. An easier and faster install can make all the difference when staying on budget.

     

    Here at Total Lighting Supply, we have over 30 years of experience designing all types of commercial projects, galleries, restaurants, and retail spaces. All of our track parts work together, are affordable, and all of them are H style. We know track lighting and track suspension.
