Today I want to ask a simple question and discuss it with you: How do you illuminate your kitchen? The worktop, to be precise. In my home I use a Philips Hue LightStrip Plus for this purpose, which is mounted in a small profile. I introduced it to you a few years ago.
In the past weeks, I have presented two more solutions. It started with the flexible Innr Puck Lights. You can use up to five puck lights on one power supply – but only with warm white light in 2,700 Kelvin. This week, I took a look at the Tint Armaro from Müller-Licht, three non-expandable LED modules that can display different color temperatures from warm white to cool white.
Building on this, we will take another look at the Tint Alba today. This Hue-compatible product is a 50 cm wide LED panel that can be attached under the kitchen cabinet using a magnet or screw. Various shades of white are also possible here, the maximum brightness is 500 lumens. This is a pretty good value when viewed from 50 cm – the Philips Hue LightStrip Plus only sums up to 400 lumens.

I have recorded a few more details and impressions of the topic in a small video for you:
Both Tint Armaro and Tint Alba are already available, but currently there are ongoing difficulties with the listing on Amazon.de – as soon as you can buy the two sub-construction solutions there, I will contact you again.
