Under cabinet lights


I am putting under cabinet lighting in my kitchen. One switch will control two sets of lights on both ends of the kitchen. Where do I best hide the junction boxes?

If possible use the switch box as your junction box. Run a wire to each of your lights and have all the joints in your switch box.

What types of lights are you planning to install, if we know what type of lights we can give you a more specific answer.

I recommend LEDs. Got mine from here: http://www.ccrane.com/lights/led-lig...-lighting.aspx

They are low voltage and consume very little electricity, yet emit plenty of light and are a breeze to install.
