Quick Fix: Easy Toe-Kick Lighting

Toe-kick lighting in the bathroom or kitchen can be both practical and good-looking. Once it functions as a type of route light for rooms in which additional safety measures are required, it can also add a sense of depth and warmth to a room.

The price of installing LED light strips (what many builders suggest using), can add up fast, but the team at BY DESIGN Custom Remodeling in Hawaii has produced a simple solution.

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

Wish to make it convenient? Try using an electrician link a wall switch into the socket where the LED rope lighting is plugged in. It is going to make turning the lighting on a great deal more convenient and permit you to hide cords and outlets.
