under cabinet lights


Getting ready to install under cab lights, thin florescent Hera lights. Where do you all normally set them, towards the back, front, middle?

Comments and opinions are appreciated!

Towards the front of the upper cabinet are where I installed my lighting I tacked them in place to be sure they illuminated as I wanted before making it permanent.

That's a personal preference. I usually install `em toward the rear. This allows for other under-cabinet accessories (can opener, paper towel rack, fold-up flat screen TV, etc) to be installed towards the front.
