LED Panels for backsplash? Under cabinet for ultra modern?

emily_mbJuly 31, 2010

I am in love with the idea of LED panels for my backsplash (about 6" x 60"). But the one website I found was very expensive. Any suggestions how to do it yourself? LED strips with an acrylic panel? What kind of acrylic panel? Where do I find one?

Also, my cabinets are very modern. They don't have a "lip" (or whatever it is called) to hide undercabinet lights. Any suggestions?

If you really want a backlit backsplash, how about using edge lit glass or EL panels behind glass?

The wiring will be interesting.

If the rear of the range will also be back lit, acrylic may not be such a good material.

LED panels or EL lighting can be used under the cabinets.

EL lighting is probably less viable due to the amount of light produced and most are still non white.

You may want to talk to Helen of everlumen. Let me know.
