Here’s a simple way to add accent lighting in your kitchen, without having to call an electrician. For a nice, warm glow, use two strands of LED battery-powered lights on top of the kitchen cabinets – one along the wall and one behind the crown molding. These are on a 6-hour timer, so they turn themselves on and off each evening.

  1. Awesome idea but then don’t you have to climb up a ladder every time you want to turn them on? The battery powered lights I have will shut off with the timer, but not back on. If there is such a thing, please provide a link. Thanks!

  2. Do these lights have the timers ‘on’ them? If they are battery operated, how do put them on a timer? Where can you find this type? (battery operated/timed)?

    Thank you!!
