Under Cabinet Lighting

I’ve always wanted lighting under our kitchen cabinets.
In the evenings, I feel like I’m preparing food in a cave.
I didn’t want it bad enough to drill holes and run wires though.
Then I came across these wireless remote control lights at Sam’s Club and just had to give it a try.

You can either use screws or double sided tape to secure them to the cabinet.
Each light needs 6 AA batteries and the remote uses button batteries (included).

You can also set each light to remote control, on or off.
I switched mine to remote control.

I used the double sided tape to install them.

I measured from the sides and front of the cabinets to get the lights even.

Then I attached the switch to the wall using a command strip.
Please ignore my half painted wall. The backsplash is going up soon.
(The switch is actually covering our old phone jack.)

Here’s the “before” without the lights.

And the “after” with the lights.
No more deep dark cave while I’m preparing food.
Now I need to buy another 2 pack for the other cabinets.

    You are such a lifesaver, I was not looking forward to drilling holes when I tackled my whole dark under cabinets. Now I have a great solution, so thanks for sharing!

    WOW-Thanks for sharing!!! I, also, have been wanting under cabinet lighting but not anything you have to drill, hard wire or weak! Thanks again!

    I was thinking the same thing under my cookbook area. Might have to look into something like this. I would also like to put lights in the pantry – just haven’t figured out how yet…

    OH my goodness!! I got these as a Christmas present from my hubby! I went back to get another set and they were all sold out! Maybe they are back in stock!! I love mine but need 2 more! I’m headed there today!

    Where are these lights sold?

    Where are they sold in Canada? I can also buy from the States. I really want these. My kitchen is basically in a cupboard, and I am desperate to get some light in there. I have no counter space, and need all the help I can get.
