LED Tape Light Brightness-Kitchen Under Cabinet Lighting

5 years ago

I am doing a kitchen remodel and will be putting in LED tape lighting under cabinets, which will be in addition to the recessed lights in the ceiling (LEDs). I'd like the under cabinet light to serve as accent and task lighting. It will be on a dimmer, and likely used in conjunction with the overhead lights for tasks. I can't find much on recommended brightness (lumens) for this, only some cryptic posts on forums noting that Lumens is a critical deciding factor but no mention of recommended amount,

Lighting will go under ~9 ft of cabinetry spread across 2 walls, and broken up by range and sink (18", 24" & 66" runs).

Any recommendations for Lumens per foot?
