Is 16" enough from the counter to the uppers?

posted by: dad4diy on 06.27.2013 at 10:21 pm in Kitchens Forum

We met with a KD to go over our "final" plans for our kitchen remodel. She suggested placing the bottom of the uppers at 16" above the counters. I seem to remember from these threads that almost everyone does 18". She said the larger space just screams of a stock cabinetry look and a shorter space looks more in line with the custom cabinets we are getting. Anybody have experience with this?

XK LED Under-Cabinet Lighting Experience?

posted by: gmt980 on 05.10.2013 at 06:04 pm in Lighting Forum

I am looking to get LED under cabinet lighting for my new condo and stumbled upon XK LED's which seem to offer pretty cheap lighting for what looks like a very simple install. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with XK LED's. They offer their products both on Ebay and through their website. If you do not have experience, but do have knowledge on the subject of under cabinet lighting, do these look like they would offer a decent budget kit?

Here is a link to the site: and_Stri_s/70.htm

You might find Mycolortopia to be helpful in finding the colors to work in your space. It's explained and linked in the Blog below.

You can upload an inspiration picture and choose an area of it that you'd like for your paint pallet and it will design colors that go with that area of your photo. Pretty simple and nifty. It's linked to Glidden, but I'm sure you could color-match to a different brand if their paint is not what you are after.
