I'm replacing my kitchen cabinets.
I'm planning on having two independent runs of LED strips: under the wall cabinets and toe kicks. I'm also considering lights inside some cabinets such as the lazy susan and drawers.
LED strips under wall cabinets and toe kicks will have separated ZigBee controllers (basically a remote control) so no switch is needed, only power (12v) at the beginning of the strip.
For the cabinets with interior light I will have to leave a low voltage (12V) wire in there somewhere so I can later install a small LED strip and a door switch.
I was wondering how people wire these lights while keeping everything hidden, up to code and maintainable.
Is it done by adding outlets inside the cabinets? If yes, is it code compliant (I'm in Florida) and are there restrictions regarding the position of the outlet within the cabinet?
This is what the kitchen looks like and I marked the place where I believe is my starting point (whether with high or low voltage).
Based on feedback, looks like it is against code to power the new outlets from the appliance ones, so here is a new idea.
There are 4 light switches on that wall for all lights in the kitchen and family room, I have neutral and hot from two different circuits (kitchen lights and family room lights). Maybe I can power this outlet from the kitchen lights circuit?
Also, if I have the power supplies and controllers in the cabinet above the fridge (which is dead space anyway - too high) and can run the 12V wires exposed behind the fridge, that can end up being really easy to maintain.
The updated plan.
