Seagull Under Cabinet Lighting

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo valerierobinsonagain So, i have four “whips” coming out from under my upper cabinets on the “L” run. They all go back to the hall closet (see pic) and there is a line in there from the switch on the kitchen wall. I told my electrician I wanted low voltage LED under cabinet lighting. I have no light rail and can’t have one because the cabinets are already lower than standard. The problem is that I am now being told by lighting stores and online dealers that I can’t have “slim” lighting because the 10-2 Romex can’t go into a fixture that will be concealed by the ¾ recess. I was told I need a transformer (1 ½ ” high) under every cabinet. Yet, another store said I can have all of them terminate in one transformer in the closet. HELP!!!! I just don’t understand and I want to do this right. Please tell me what I need. (Thinking Seagull Ambiance High Density Modules) Like Bookmark April 19, 2014 at 8:05AM

valerierobinsonagain YAY, FRED! I was hoping you’d see this and respond! You are right, Fred, it is 14-2 (Is that the lowest of the three? Then that’s it.) I initially tried to post this thread directly to you, as you’ve been so helpful. You’re not in the Hudson Valley area of NY by any chance, are you? 🙂 I don’t know what “nec” is, so I surely can’t tell you which version my area is on. (????) The biggest issue (among a few big issues) is that I need to keep things slim as could be- NO light rail, for any reason, will be added to these cabinets. I like what agevm has suggested, but I still don’t get how it works and that white box under their cabinet is going to hang below mine, quite a bit. We have two separate switches, also, in the same switch box. One controls the entire “L” and the other controls a different wall with its own future transformer. And, lastly, I need a light under the widow valance. I have considered a particular product from Seagull (Ambiance) that I really like. If I post into and a pic about it, will you have a look? Many thanks.

Under-cabinet lighting is typically added under a cabinet, shelf, or similar surface in order to produce localized lighting on a work surface. Under-cabinet lighting can also double as a night light.

If you’ll be using your under cabinet lights with any frequency, you should take energy use into consideration. Energy Star does rate under cabinet lighting, so you can check their site to see how different options fare in terms of energy use. LED lighting will be your best choice for energy efficiency, and you can find LED options among all the types of under cabinet lighting available.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo agevm Your wiring setup looks similar to ours, but we have 2 separate zones. The 120V lines emanate from 2 wall switches in our kitchen and go to one junction box into our pantry where we have 2 transformers (picture attached). The transformers take the voltage down to 12V & then go two junction boxes in the attic where the under cabinet lighting wires are linked to. We had romex installed originally for 120V under the cabinets but now use it only for the low voltage hookups. Under the cabinets the romex is wire-nutted to the slim wires from the small flexible lighting strip bands (picture attached). We used low profile junction boxes since we also have an electrical outlet. The wires come out of the back of the wall and are not inside the cabinets. You might be able to find a low voltage/lower profile box to join the wires up under the cabinet to clean up the look. You can check with Inspired LED or some other electrical supply place too. I believe Inspired LED also has a special small connector where you can directly link the low voltage romex to the small wire for the LED strips and not have to wire nut inside a box. This might be the way to go in your limited space. Our’s work great and were done by a licensed electrician as well. Like Bookmark April 19, 2014 at 11:19AM Thanked by valerierobinsonagain
