Easy Under Cabinet Lighting and Hidden Cords

34,212 Views
We have a pretty big counter area and lots of cabinets. The lighting has always been difficult. We have thought about under cabinet lighting, but I thought the cords would drive me nuts! I like organized mess.
Then one night the solution came to me... white duct tape to hide the cords. Tape them to the white bottoms of cabinets.
ordered under cabinet lights from Amazon (a coupon blog I follow showed some on sale at a great price)...
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $70 Difficulty: Easy
Lights and tape... all you need beside the screwdriver.
Here is what they looked like under my cabinet with clear packing tape... not my favorite.
Here is with no tape and extra cords just hanging. Do not want that at all.
Used white duct tape to cover holes too (we used to have an under cabinet DVD player, so holes still there)
Here's a view from under the cabinet with the wires covered by the white duct tape.
Looks so clean and not as noticeable. And the duct tape will hold!
Dark corner... hard to see right?
Ignore the Messy counter but see how lit up it is...
Bought 2 sets as we have the sink separating the cabinetS. Worked perfectly. And such wonderful light!

    The underside of our cabinets is brown :'( I'll have to be on the lookout for brown tape.

    • Try masking tape, then darken it with dark brown shoe polish or dark brown craft paint.

    Yep! I’m on it! Beats the $300 I would have paid an electrician.
