Installing LED Rope Light
LED rope light is a newer way of giving light to different places, such as under a kitchen cabinet. This type of light is typically more energy efficient than a normal bulb. Depending on how your cabinet is built, the lamps are designed to have a low profile so that they cannot be seen under the cabinet. Installing LEDs can be done by first determining where to place LED light mounting.
