October 3, 2008, Newsletter Issue #135: Kitchen Cabinet Lighting

Tip of the Week

Kitchen cabinet lighting is a real convenience for busy cooks. Besides providing a clear view of the food being cooked, good kitchen cabinet lights also help prevent injuries, such as cuts and burns.

Unfortunately, it's not easy to add such lighting when the cabinets are already in place. Many kitchen cabinets are set into insulated exterior walls, making it more difficult to find room for extra wires. Even if you're handy, this is probably a project for an electrical professional.

Most under-cabinet lights are hidden behind the cabinet facing. This requires an ultra-slim fixture that is invisible to people in the room. For extra flexibility, add a dimmer switch so they can be used for full-intensity task lighting or moderate accent lighting.
