Learn how to install low-voltage modular LED lighting under your kitchen cabinets.

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your home, making it usable, safe, and inviting. It may also be one of the least planned and most under-appreciated facilities in your home--particularly in the kitchen. As a site for family gatherings and a work area for food preparation, school projects, crafts, and more, the kitchen needs good lighting. One way to enhance that lighting is to install LED lights under the kitchen cabinets for better visibility and ambiance. LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights are state-of-the-art. They are longer lived and five times more energy-efficient than the incandescent lights made commercially viable by Thomas Edison and others more than a century ago. The manufacturer of the fixtures we chose rates them for 60,000 operating hours--that's like burning them 10-plus hours every day for more than 15 years. They are also attractive, dimmable, low-profile and virtually invisible when mounted under the cabinets. Fixtures that use LED lights are easy to install and rated as low-voltage, typically powered by a transformer that steps down house current to 12 volts. In short, LED lighting is a very bright idea.
