    Hi guys,

    I need to stick a light in my fuge its inside a cabnet, 40*40*40cm

    What is the most sufficient and most economical lighting to put inside, is Kelvin rating important for a fuge?

    Any energy saver should do it. Around 6000K should be fine.

    I have a 14W T5 6500k. They are around R135.
