Updating my kitchen without replacing cabinets
It can make the whole room glow, especially if you take a multi-directional approach.This kitchen features uplighting from energy-efficient LED tape on the top cabinets, and task lighting from LED under-cabinet fixtures on the bottom cabinet, both from Kichler. I rinsed the doors and drawers with water and let them dry completely.
Kichler recommends dimmable task lighting for the kitchen so that you can make it as bright as necessary for doing prep work but dial it down for evening mood-setting.
