cost for under cabinet lighting (kitchen)

nikinikinineJune 27, 2012

Anyone mind sharing their costs for under cabinet lighting? We are looking at a puck light every foot or so in our kitchen. On rough estimate this is around 16 lights at a quoted upcharge of $200 per light. I feel like $3200 is a ridiculous number for under cabinet lighting in a 17 x 12 U shaped kitchen, but it wouldn't be the first time I was naive when it came to our costs.

Thanks in advance.

Your electrician should charge a couple hundred for leaving switched wires at the cabinet height during rough in and some small amount per light for install (or you can do it yourself).

You can get the lights for $15-50 each for Xenon low profile bars, depending on the length of them. I used www.contractorlighting.com
