Enhance the atmosphere of your kitchen by simply adding under cabinet lighting with Enbrighten Café String Lights by Jasco. This post is written in partnership with Acorn Influence, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Over the past few weeks, we have been doing some updates around our home. I laugh now because it all started with simply wanting my carpet replaced in the bedrooms. We are long past having our carpet replaced now. This past week, we had every floor in our home replaced with new wood tile. It’s gorgeous! I’m so in love with the new floors, it honestly looks like a whole new home.
Of course, now I want to repaint my entire house too. That may be next, but shhh…don’t tell my husband. I’m definitely ready to just relax and enjoy our home though now after we had to move out for the flooring to be installed, I’m ready to just get settled back in.
One update that I’ve wanted to do for a while now is to paint my kitchen cabinets, they were this wood oak, but they were in desperate need of a makeover. Once we knew that we were getting new flooring, I decided that was prime time to get these painted before the new floors came in. It took me 5 days but I was ecstatic with the way that these turned out. I still get shocked every single time I walk into the kitchen.
Once we had our cabinets painted, we decided to try out Enbrighten Café String Lights by Jasco to add some under cabinet lighting. I am really happy with how these turned out, my husband strung the lights around our kitchen and then used a few nails to get them in place under the cabinets. They are perfect for entertaining and parties this fall, we even added more outside on our patio too.
Not only do I love the lights, but I’m using the TouchSmart Timer too and that allows me to control when they come on and go off. That means when we come home, we never have to come home to a dark home, the lights are on before we even get there.
The great thing is they are LED and energy efficient. They actually never have to be replaced and are weather proof. I’m anxious to get more to string along our fence too. They really set the mood in the kitchen for parties with the soft lighting. It’s great to have the food set out on the bar and then allow the twinkle of the lights to light the space up.

I love the look of lighting under the cabinets! Our colours in the kitchen are quite dark so this would really add to our space. We were looking at one that are embedded into the cupboards as we need every inch of counter top space!

I love under the cabinet lights and these look simple to install. I love the way your cabinets came out and they look great with these lights. I will be checking out these lights for under my cabinets.

We had something similar in our previous backyard…I miss them! But, I LOVE how energy efficient this version sounds…WOW! And what a fun idea to use them as under-cabinet lighting.

I really want to add lighting under my cabinets, I just didn’t know which ones to go with. I think these look great! I am going to have to look into these for my kitchen, I hate dark areas under the cabinet, this is great!
My kitchen is desperately in need of an update. I’ve thought about painting rather than replacing my cabinets but didn’t consider the under cabinet lighting! I need to put it on my list.

My kitchen counters have dark shadowing and it affects my mood while preparing food. These lights maybe be the solution to my lighting problem. A timer would come in handy, as well.
