LED Lights under kitchen Worktops


Recommended Posts

I am about to install new kitchen and would like to put led strip lights under the worktops along the front edge.  Worktops are not specialised granite or quartz, just normal laminate.  Kitchen layout is L shaped with 2M by 1M island.  Plan is to put lights on L shape and island.  kitchen forms part of an open plan kitchen/diner.  Grateful for any advice from anyone who has done something similar and any dos and dont's.  Also any advice on ratings, colour ie warm or cool white, recommended suppliers etc.  Any advice much appreciated.  I am an electrician so will be doing the job myself, just not fitted these lights before so looking to the self build community before I start.  Regards.

Good idea which we thought about but our kitchen designer put us off them and we are very glad. We have a very light coloured large 1.2m sq tiles throughout and you have to hoover nearly everyday. You would not believe the amount of dust/debris that accumulate every single day and if you put lights under your worktop it will show up absolutely everything depending on your floor covering. GROSS WARNING!! If you walk round bare footed as I do when you sit down you have an area of dirt/skin exactly where your feet have been that drop off as you move your feet around. Plus you would not believe the amount of hairs that get shed each and everyday as they form a patch around your feet when sit down. We moved from a carpeted house with a dark laminate floor and used to hoover once a week as there was nothing to see but now we hoover every day and may get a robotic hoover in the future as it is depressing reality of living in a modern new build that is so light!! GROSSNESS OVER!
