    fluorescent or led should be good .led may give less light.take a look in a lighting shop if possible before buying.the cfl 9w type shown has a long warm-up time.the led and fluorescent(electronic) should start fast .the led is highest-efficiency and suitable for frequent switching(on/off) afaik.

    There are lovely neat little fluorescents to be got. Really slim and easy to fit. They can if required plug into each other to make installation easier.

    They are so small that they cannot be seen under the pelmet at the bottom of your cabinets.

    All the wholesalers have them

    IKEA do a set of 3 10W halogen cabinet downlighters including transformer for €14. Everything plugs into the transformer and there is no work to it. You can get extra lights for fiver if you need them because the transformer will run 6 in total.
