This is the third blog post of my New Home Project post series. This series of posts details the lighting projects that I have undertaken in my new home. My first post reviewed the installation of our under cabinet lighting and my second post covered the use of microfluorescent T4 fixtures as pantry and closet lighting. This post will also talk about microfluorescent T4 fixtures, but this time using them as over cabinet lighting in my kitchen.
While my house was under construction, I had the electricians install electrical outlets on either side of my kitchen directly above my cabinets. These outlets are controlled by a single wall switch. Once we moved into our home, I measured the total length of the cabinets where I could place the microfluorescent fixtures.
