    Looking for info on led strip lighting on ceilings with the coving profiles. How would you hide the driver and the cable to the strip light. Would you have the driver above ceiling and just chase the cable from driver to led strip into the wall so it comes out of the wall above the coving.

    I'm an apprentice and smart home lighting is something I want to learn.

    Also what's best way to do strip lighting for kitchen cabinets? Have a plug and play or have it hardwired and if hardwired what's best way to do this ?

    you would have to put the driver under the floor boards has long you can get access to it or have the cable long enough to hide the driver some wear else.so it can not been seen .
    the best way is to put the driver on top of the wall cabinets and the cable to the strip lights under the wall units .there is a lot to think about designing lighting in some rooms .

    What sort of LED strip are you suggesting here? Mostly strips that come on a roll like sellotape are sort of hidden behind something and light up a wall for example, so the driver and the strip itself are hidden. The strips are too bright to be seen directly, and your eyesight will be seeing lines of little dots for hours afterwards.

    Or am I confused.

    It’s because I tried to do “veganuary” ..... those 20 minutes last Tuesday was pure hell.
    I’m now trying “gin-uary” ... going well
    Can’t wait for “feb-homebrew-ary”

    I'm thinking about led strip lights that are not the plug in type. For a pendant you run a cable to a point in the ceiling the cable is hidden, so if I want a led strip above a cabinet or on those coving profiles you can buy would you have say the T+e just coming out of the wall above the profile and into a driver ?

    Screenshot_20190108-230246_Chrome.jpg so this is the type of lighting designs I want to learn about. I know the strip itself would be hidden in the profile but the led strips will normally have a length of cable going to the driver would that be chased into the wall at the top and have the driver above ceiling and connect supply to that?
