Pricing Under-Cabinet Lighting

Answered by Brendan ~ May 20, 2010 ~ Comments

Following some ideas I saw online, I want to put in some under-cabinet lighting in my kitchen. I have cabinets over the sink, and it seems like a good idea to put some work lighting there to help with food preparation and cleanup. Is there an inexpensive way to handle it?

The cheapest way to add an under cabinet light at your sink is to add the plug in type with an integrated switch. Be sure to plug it into a GFCI receptacle since it is in a wet location. You can route the cord through the cabinet to hide it. The other option is to add a hard wired light but that will require cutting into the walls and tying into the existing wiring. This method will give you the option off adding a switch in the wall but will require a certain amount of electrical experience. The hard wire method may require some sheetrock patching and paint touch up and will take more time to install.
