Under cabinet lighting

bsobaid's picture

I want to install under cabinet lighting but my cabinets dont have that extra wooden strip at the bottm front to hide the lights underneath the cabinets.I think I have seen a kind of under cabinet lighting that is more like a transparent water hose with light inside it. I looked for it at Rona but did'nt find it. Anyone knows what is it called?Any ideas how to get under cabinet lighting without showing all the electric work and fittings?

You should take the help of professional handyman for this task I think .

my kitchen cabinets had the same problem and we didn't want to add the trim since cabinets were already 2 years old the colors of the 2 woods could vary. initially we installed under cabit lights that could be seen and it really didn't look good. then we planned to change it and the only choice as recessed lights were to drill the cabinet and put them in; we hide the wires as we installed back splash and in the side of the cabinets by putting liners. the lights are the same tickeness as the shelf and sits flash, they are sold in home depot or rona. it looks great now.

Perhaps you could install a trim/valance around the base of your cabinets and paint it out the same colour as your cabinets/stain it the same way?

These undercounter lights could probably work without a valance if you were okay with it showing:

Anyone else have other ideas?
