How To Install Wireless Under Cabinet Lighting In 5 Minutes with Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape

How To Install Wireless Under Cabinet Lighting In 5 Minutes with Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape:

We’re currently in a rental home and even though it’s brand new, the house was built by a developer (along with several others in the neighborhood) specifically to be a rent house.  What that means is the house was built with no upgrades at all.  No ceiling fans, no doorbell, no extra wiring (which means no internet, cable or phones in any of the rooms,) and the lighting package was pretty basic too.

The first thing we did after moving in was to add ceiling fans in every room. This is Texas and I’m a girl who just runs hot, lol.  We also added closet organizers, shelving in the bathrooms and laundry and a little flower garden in the back. (All with approval of course.)  And thank goodness for all the wireless technology available now…  From doorbells to wireless DVRs to internet repeaters and cameras, we’ve been able to make ourselves quite comfy in this house!

We have a big window in the dining room (next to the kitchen) that provides lots of lovely light during the day.  At night though, it’s a different story.  I really wanted to add a bit more brightness to the kitchen.  The project couldn’t be anything that involved electricity or tools since that type of thing is 100% out of my skill set.

The good news is, there are tons of battery powered lighting options available.  You can choose from led light bars, puck lights or rope lights.  Go as fancy as you want – installing lights that come with remotes, motion or light sensors; or go very basic with switches or the “press on” style light.

In our case, I went with a fairly inexpensive LED Light Bar with a switch.

I wanted to make sure the light would not come loose or fall, so I knew the Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape would be perfect for this project. (The Gorilla Tape is good stuff.  We just used the heavy duty version to securely mount a 5 pound stick vacuum to a closet wall in our camper.)

If you’ve never seen the Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape before – this stuff is amazing!  The mounting tape is a clear double-sided tape that mounts instantly, for a long-lasting, weatherproof bond. The crystal clear adhesive tape is good for indoor and outdoor use. Plus it won’t yellow over time and holds up to 15 pounds (7 pounds for squares.)

The Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape made my little project so easy – the hardest part ended up being me trying to get the light out of the ridiculous packaging!

Installing Under Cabinet Lighting With Gorilla Mounting Tape Couldn’t Be Easier!

To install the light bar, cut the Gorilla Mounting Tape to size and apply it to the bottom of the light fixture…

Peel off the back side of the tape and stick it to the underside of the cabinet!

It’s that easy! Thanks to Gorilla Tough & Clear Mounting Tape, I now have lights under my kitchen cabinets!

Now it’s your turn! I’d love to hear about your kitchen dream project.
