When choosing under cabinet LED lighting you have few options available. You can go with either a small direct spot light or full size recessed fluorescent channels. Both offer an elegant look to highlight the kitchen. It just falls back on personal choice.
For the sake of convenience let's look at putting in a set of lights which doesn't need to be hardwired back to your main circuit panel.
First of all you need to go down to the hardware store and pick out an under cabinet LED lighting kit.
As soon as you've selected the perfect light for your kitchen, installation is a breeze.
Compute the full length of your drawers. This will determine how many lights you need. A good general guideline is to apply 1 spot light every 18 inches.
Start the first bulb far enough from the end of the shelves to allow for equal spacing of all the lights.
Get a few small finish nails to tack the LED lights to the base of the cabinets. Remember the nail is short enough that it won't protrude completely through the bottom of the cabinet.
Keep on tacking lights up until you get to the end of the string.
Put an inline splice into the under cabinet lighting wires as close as possible to an electrical wall plug. The cabinet lighting kit should have this included in it.
Now splice the electricity switch of the lighting into this wire. Cut down any excess line and hook up an electrical plug to the end of the wire.
Next use a staple gun to staple up the electrical wiring. Be careful to center the cord in the staple to stop cutting into the wire. If the wire is too long to lay flush in straight line between the lights you can also snake it along the underside of the cabinet. Since the wires and lights are tucked it doesn't matter how the wire is run, you can't see it.
The final step is to finish work on the lights. Working through the light string, pop bulbs into the sockets being sure they're tight. After all the lights are installed simply snap on the decorative coverings and that's it, you're done!
Plug in the LED lights and turn the switch. Put your head under the counter to make sure that all the LED lights come on.
