Installing lighting under the cabinets in your kitchen gives off a great effect and is not as difficult as you may realise. You don't have to be a fully qualified electrician to install them as there are simple kits you can purchase from your local home improvement store which makes this job very easy.
If you purchase one of the kits for lighting under the kitchen cabinets, you will find a socket at the end of each unit. This is to allow you to add more lights if needed. It is a case of buying a few more and adding to the existing lights like a daisy chain.
To keep the look of the lights professional, mark a straight line using a rule or spirit level with a pencil in the place where you wish to fix the light units. Then use the straight line as a guide as you fix the lights to the cabinet using screws or high strength stick pads. This will ensure a simple but strong fix.
Then take the cable out of the pack and run it in between the lighting units. The better kits will have the cable with plugs on the end. All you need to do is to put the plug from the end of the cable into the socket in the light unit. You may also need to fix the cable to the unit to prevent it from hanging down. A staple gun or anything else which can be used to tack the wire should be fine.
If the bulbs are not already installed then this is the time to do it. Take care while putting in the bulbs and make sure they are seated correctly.
And as long as the bulbs are OK, you should be able to power up and enjoy your handy work.
Installing under cabinet kitchen lighting is a great way to give your kitchen the wow factor. And remember; buy the right kit for the job and it will be easy to do your self.
