I have a kitchen remodel being done here starting in July. And when I say remodel, I’m talking complete gut job, down to the studs and removing drywall and replacing insulation and running electrical wiring for new and additional outlet placement, and new switch placement
I have 75% of my home converted over to Lutron Caseta lighting. So all overhead lighting will be controlled by Lutron Caseta dimmers for the 4” can LED lighting being installed in the ceiling.
What I’m looking for is a under cabinet lighting solution that works with Lutron (no buzzing or flickering of lighting), is dimmable, mount is clean with no wires or transformers showing, has lights that are easily replaced should a section fail for some reason.
Do you install an outlet inside a cabinet up high and mount the transformer in the cabinet plugged into a Lutron dimmer? I’m trying to envision how this will all get put together since I’ll be doing the electrical work myself. Anyone have any pictures of their install and how it’s wired and controlled?
I’ve been leaning towards the Hue light strips, particularly for colored lighting under the base cabinet because I want to setup lighting that comes on if the gas range / stove is left on for more then a period of time. I may also want lighting inside specific cabinets that are deeper as well so I’d like to understand how people have wired up their lighting for inside their cabinets.
What are some kitchen automation solutions you would change if you could do it over again? Looking for ideas and suggestions.
