How to Install Upper Cabinet Lighting

Lighting is such an important aspect of a room; it is such an easy way to customize the aesthetic of your home. The Hubster and I thought of every single lighting aspect during the design center with our builder. Buuut then we moved in (you can read all about that here) and realized we actually didn’t. We totally forgot to have the electrician install outlets above the cabinets for upper cabinet lighting. We aren’t the only ones right?? Thankfully, the Hubster and I knew that adding upper cabinet light would be a simple low-cost DIY.

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks

    • Thanks for letting me know, I’ll take a look and see what’s going on. Glad you enjoyed the design look!

  2. Howdy! This article couldn’t be written much better!

    Pretty sure he’ll have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
