I found some undercabinet lights at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for a steal, so I purchased two of the shorter length for the cabinets near the stove. Wiring these in was relatively simple; we only drilled holes through the sides and bottom of the two cabinets in order to run the wires from the outlet above the stove to the lights. Hanging the fixtures was also simple, as it only included placing two screws under the cabinets and sliding the lights on.A simple outline of the lights on some drawing newsprint helped keep the screw intervals equal to those of the mounting areas.
We often leave these on when overnight guests stay. They accentuate the tile backsplash and interesting pattern on the countertops. Yes, the countertops do look a bit busy with all this color, but the lights give a nice soft glow to the whole kitchen. Hopefully a new kitchen floor sometime soon will bring the room together a bit better!
