Quick Fix: Easy Toe-Kick Lighting

Toe-kick lighting in the kitchen or bathroom can be both practical and good-looking. While it serves as a type of path light for rooms where extra safety measures are needed, it can also add a sense of warmth and depth to a room. 

The cost of installing LED light strips (what many contractors suggest using), can add up quickly, but the team at BY DESIGN Custom Remodeling in Hawaii has come up with a simple solution.

Instead of opting for LED light strips or recessed toe-kick lighting,Michelle Turner and Brian Rigney suggest using basic 120V plug-in LED rope lighting. "The cost is considerably less than the 12V LED light strips," says Turner.

Want to make it a little more convenient? Try having an electrician connect a wall switch to the outlet where the LED rope lighting is plugged in. It'll make turning the lighting on much more convenient and allow you to hide cords and outlets.
