I want to put lights under my kitchen cabinets. I have no way of just plugging them into an existing outlet. The problem is the only available electricity is going to the stove range hood. Could I tap into that wire with a junction box? Also I will need to run the wire inside the kitchen cabinets. I was going to run metal flex cable through the cabinets. Is there anything wrong with this?
What you say all sounds good. What type of lighting are you going to install. Have you considered low voltage lighting, it would make the wiring job much easier.
I'm putting in 2-24in fluorescent lights. How would using low voltage lighting make the wiring any easier? I also want to put in an outlet under the cabinet because there is nowhere to plug anything in on that end of the counter. There is an outlet on the wall under the counter top on the other side of the kitchen but it useless to use for any appliance like a mixer. Since I want an outlet there I figured just wiring some fluorescent lights would be easy.
