LED stands for light emitting diodes, and these lights are widely used for kitchen lighting purposes. LEDs are often used to illuminate some areas in a kitchen which can be difficult to light with standard bulbs. For some types of LEDs it just requires the simple replacement of fluorescent or incandescent bulbs with new LED bulbs. In some other situations, LED units are specially mounted under cabinets or even inside furniture pieces to give focused illumination. LED illumination can vary, not only in cost, but also in the quality of light. These differences can be found in LED bulbs and also the fixtures.
