LED Strips Used In PC, Also Used In Kitchen At Home
« on: August 24, 2019, 08:00:15 am »
Since this is a home project, I placed this here.

Many here know of my conversion to LED in our PC HERE.

At home I utilized the left-over LEDs.  I placed the low voltage on/off/dimmer under the cabinet to the right of the microwave oven, and plugged in the 12V transformer in the outlet inside the cabinet above the microwave.

BEFORE


AFTER


We initially wanted the LED strips pointing downward, but the bright reflection off the quartz counter top was blinding.  Attaching the strips to the side of the inside cabinet edge eliminated the bright reflection and also made it easy to pass thru from one cabinet to the other.  Admittedly the LEDs light up the back wall more, and the counter less, but it still does the job well.

Very nice! Dark kitchens can drive you crazy. You can see a major improvement in your pictures.
