RE: Electric outlets and backsplash (Follow-Up #1)

First and most importantly, congratulations on the anniversary! That is quite an accomplishment!

Second, you can have a backsplash free of electrical. For outlets, the two options I know of are plugmold, which I used, and Mocketts. You can do a search on those - they're cool pop-up outlets.

I also put my switched up under the cabinets.

And the garbage is powered by an airswitch at my sink.

The airswitch is the tiny button 4" to the right of my faucet.

Good luck,

We purchased them from a local electrical supply house. Alkco's website gave me the name of the local representative. The local rep is just a wholesaler and gave me the name of a couple local distributor. I also got the number of two other electrical supply places that sold Alkco-- I called three to get quotes-- which ranged A LOT. The longer versions (41") were about $250 and the shorter light was about $150. That includes the connectors and junction boxes.

I haven't installed the light skirt yet.

If you order the Alkco, you need to order a junction box and a connector. These are visible on the second picture. The junction box is the small white box behind the plugmold. The connector goes between the junction box and the light, and can connect to either end. I purchased 3 6" connectors and now realize that one of the lights needs a 12" connector. I hadn't thought that through.

Let me know if you have other questions.
