We have had the best luck with the Cree brand LED trims. Good luck!
What an elegant and excellent suggestion!

+1 on the LED's. They run cooler and produce better quality light as well. Our new LED's really make being in the kitchen a nicer experience.

Thanks for the suggestion.... forgot to post a thanks....


DW and kids are leaving tomorrow for spring break.... I will be in the kitchen doing this... and I think this will work the best...

Also probably going LED because I think they will dim better than the CFLs...

OK... update on this...


I put in a BR30 in the socket and it seems to be working just fine...

Now I am looking to find a BR40 as my wife does not like the look of the BR30... and the cost of them are WAY HIGH...

Anybody know of a good site to buy reasonable priced ones The cost seems to be double the BR30s (or more)...

Our statewide energy efficiency organization offers LED lights through electrical distributors at a discounted price. You might check and see if there is anything like that in your area.
