Fix LED glare on granite countertop?? Help please!

11 years ago

I am looking at the Environmental Lights LED High Brightness bars for UCL in my new construction kitchen, but there is significant glare on my granite countertops if mounted horizontal on the cabinet, despite having a diffuser on it. If angled back to the backsplash, the glare is less bright, but you can definitely see the diodes. You no longer see the diodes when the bar is held at 90 degrees, but there is obviously less lighting (only indirect) and then I can see the reflection of the bottom side of the cabinet. I was really wanting to go with the LED route, but I am having difficulty deciding what to do about the glare-issue. Any suggestions on this? What have been your experience? Pictures would be very helpful too!
