Hue Kitchen Lightstrip Installation
Using a run of light strips above and below wall hung kitchen cabinets is a great way to add mood lighting to a kitchen and is a popular choice with Hue users and great way to use the light strips.
Kitchen Lightstrip with Diffuser
This user has two separate light strips that have been extended, one installed along the top of the kitchen cabinets and one underneath, the top acts as mood lighting while the one below can be used as task lighting too.
Installed down one side of the kitchen you can see the light effect it creates.
The light strip installed under the cabinets is installed in a metal diffuser strip which helps to protect the lightstrip from stream and water, as well as helping to diffuse the light. The metal ligtstrip case is screwed to the underside of the units with a frosted plastic strip that holds and hides the ligthstrip in place giving a seamless and clean look.
3 lengths of diffuser casing was used and cut to length for the final section to allow a good fit.
The photo below is a closer image of the diffuser used, when off the LED strip cannot be seen.
With the lights on you can see the full effect in the evening when it is dark.
This Philips Hue light strip kitchen installation uses two power controllers which are plugged into the mains where one cupboard as a plug socket used for the builtin extractor. The cable is then run down the side of the cupboard to the top and bottom light strip.
