Using cordless under cabinet lighting is a great way to add light and ambiance to your kitchen décor without having the expense of having to install permanent wiring.
No matter how great the general kitchen lighting is, there always seems to be that shadow cast on the counter when you are trying to chop veggies, read a recipe or simply be able to see clearly what you are doing.
If you have just moved into an apartment, or older home that does not have any led under cabinet lighting, then using these is an affordable option. Technology has got better and better and now having good lighting does not mean you have to shred your kitchen to get the wiring installed at great expense.
This is not always an option available to a homeowner. If you are shredding your kitchen for a major renovation then you could consider getting them wired in, but I have also seen brand new kitchens that still had dark corners after the renovation was complete.
These portable battery operated under cabinet lights offer LED lighting which takes very little energy and those batteries will last a good long time. You also have the option of installing them anywhere you want, even in display cabinets.
This Sylvania 72422 Battery-Operated LED Under-Cabinet Light with motion-sensor function makes a great addition to a rental property where you simply cannot start messing with the wiring, and it also works well in book shelves and display cabinets basically anywhere you want to showcase something without obvious lighting.

They are small enough to not be the focal point, and the light that is given off is quite bright. They are small and black which will fit in most decors. No longer does lighting have to be cumbersome or expensive!
These little “puck lights” take 3 AAA batteries each which are included, and they last a good long time. This particular set also has a “motion sensor function” so that they will automatically come on, which is great if you are working in the kitchen, and don’t want to be fumbling for any light switches under the cabinet!
They will simply shut off on their own as well. These can be mood enhancing lights, and when the main room lights are shut off they give a perfect glow. Many homeowners pay a lot of money in wiring to get that same look. These look just like the small wired in ones.
So, if you would like to add under cabinet lighting to your kitchen or den or even your china cabinet, and don’t want the expense of wiring and having to hide the wires or the plugs, or even having to get outlets installed, then consider battery operated tiny LED lights.
They are easy to install and can be moved or taken down, which makes they a great idea for a house warming gift or for a rental property, or if you simply love your kitchen the way it is and want to add extra task lighting.
You can get these at most home improvement stores, but you can also get them online at sites such as Amazon. You can get a great assortment of home improvement lighting ideas online which in most cases can be delivered right to your door.
Cordless under cabinet lighting is the way to go if you want to add lighting to your home at minimal expense.
