We've yet to meet someone who doesn't want a beautiful kitchen, but the design spans way beyond the color of your cabinets. If you're looking to upgrade your kitchen into one of grace and luxury the good news is that you don't need thousands of dollars to do so. HGTV's Jenn Todyrk found a simple, and affordable, way to elevate your cooking area. And all you need is a set of LED under-cabinet lights.

"Do you like under-cabinet lighting? It's a must for me. Whether it's day or night, they are on," Todryk says on her Instagram. "They aren't even fancy, they are LED strips and you'd NEVER know," she explains.

We love how the simple warm lighting adds ambiance to your kitchen that can be used at any point of the day. It's a simple way to make your kitchen feel luxurious and elevated and is the perfect DIY project. Plus, from your local hardware store to Amazon, you can find LED light strips of multiple lengths at great prices. 

How to add under-cabinet lighting to your kitchen

Not only are these strip lights a game changer in your kitchen's aesthetics, but they're simple and easy to install. Most LED under-cabinet strips are built with an adhesive that sticks to the bottom of your cabinets. The adhesive is sturdy enough to keep your strips stuck in place so you don't have to worry about them falling off. 

These lighting types are a kitchen addition that builds subtle grace. Plus, they are functional. They provide ambient mood lighting but many are dimmable, meaning you can simply turn the higher when it's time to make a midnight snack.

Bluetooth-enabled ones like Phillips Hue strips from Best Buy allow you to control the lights and change their colors from a mobile app. You can also find sets of under-cabinet lighting on Amazon that are battery-operated. These require minimal effort to install and don't the extra step of hiding wires for a seamless appearance.
