Easy Way to Upgrade Your Kitchen in Minutes (& It's Renter-friendly!)
I've done a lot of DIY projects in my rental kitchen to make it feel like home and more functional and the under cabinet lighting I had installed just wasn't bright enough. So I recently upgraded it with these amazingly bright LED lights that come with motion sensor switch!
I got these LED lights on Amazon and I love that they are very thin so you hardly see them when they are installed and they also come with a motion sensor switch so you can turn them on/off with a wave of the hand.
You can install the lights with screws or with the double sided pads that come with it. I chose to use the pads and to make them more renter-friendly and easier to remove later, I used removable double-sided tape on the side that will be attached to the underside of the cabinet.
I spaced out the lights evenly to cover the entire area of the counter top.
And then it was just a matter of sticking the lights to the pads.
I used cable staples to secure the wires - they are really inexpensive and only make very small holes. I used more double sided tape to secure the sensor and then plugged the power cord into the outlet.
And this is after! So much better and I love that these LED lights only took a few minutes to do AND renter-friendly!
This video has the installation of the lights and other DIY projects I did, including a pull out drawer that has a special feature to make them renter-friendly.
