LED strip lighting questions

nursecynthiaFebruary 26, 2014

I'm facinated with LED strip/tape lighting. I am thinkning of using it under my kitchen cabinets. I especially like its low profile. Does anyone have recommendations? How bright should it be to be a true task light? Most of the strip lighting I've seen connects to a 12V plug, can these be hard wired?

Brushworks Spectacular Finishes

I'm installing strips behind the toe kicks this weekend, accompanied by a motion sensor. Fun project.

Brushworks, where will you plug them in? I would like to do that on my stairs and on my front walkway. We have a step-down from the carport to the front patio. I am always afraid someone will fall.

I looked at many types of LED under cabinet lighting, bought some and returned it, read reviews for hours and searched online.
I came to the conclusion that these Quoizel tape lights are the sturdiest and easiest to install and that is what we are using.
On one side of the kitchen the thin wire with the plug will go up inside the cabinet and plug in he receptacle in the cabinet where the microwave plugs in.
On the other side we are putting a new receptacle above the sink and will plug them in there as not to have plug in wires visible on the backsplash.
