New Home Project: Under Cabinet Lighting

DIY - ELECTRICALRecently, my family and I moved into a new home. We had lived in our previous home for more than seven years (loving every minute in our old house). But we were starting to get just a little cramped as our family had grown from just the two of us to now the four of us.  While packing and moving is no fun at all, I was looking forward to the new house because I had some big plans for our lighting. I mean, hey, I do work for a lighting company.

Over the next couple of blog posts, I am going to share the lighting projects that I have tackled in our new home (including pics). Some projects I did and others I had professional electricians perform. My first new home project was adding under cabinet lights. I had under cabinet lighting installed in our previous home and there was just no way I was not going to have my under cabinet lighting. I literally cannot live without them. We have a favorite saying in our household when we talk about something we want or like.  We say, “It’s a quality of life issue.” Well, under cabinet lighting is a “quality of life issue for me.”

Customer Lighting Project: Cool White LED Rope Lights

Rope lighting is perfect for lining the top of a cove ceiling , and you can use either warm white or cool white LED rope light to create the desired effect.  Rob Q. used our Cool White LED Rope Lights for the cove around the top of his living room.  Check out the “after” photos:

“Thanks for processing my order. I thought you might like to see how I used my previous order of LED rope lights. I built a cove light in my living room to conceal surround-sound speaker wires and placed the rope lights in the cove. They provide a beautiful, cool glow to our home and make the vaulted ceiling seem even higher. The indirect light is perfect for watching TV and one can even read by the light. I’m planning to add this new order above the kitchen cabinets and along the top of a beam which separates the living room and kitchen.”
