I'm a home expert – how to make your kitchen look expensive with less than $40

DECKING out your dream kitchen with all the thoughtful details can quickly add up to a hefty cost.

One home decor mastermind found a way to serve up the same high-end kitchen look as home magazines, for a fraction of the cost.


Stefanie Bloom, an Arizona-based interior expert, unveiled the fancy find she sourced from Amazon: a set of under-cabinet lights.

"First things first, these lights are peel-and-stick," Bloom said, showing the easy installation process in a video.

In a novel innovation, the lights themselves don't stick to the undersides of the cabinets.

Instead, they attach to a magnetic bar that has an adhesive on one side.

That way, it's easy to remove the lights when they run out of battery power – and once they do, another great feature comes into play.

"They are rechargeable, so no batteries," Bloom continued. The lights can last for weeks on one charge, she said, depending on how often they're used.

And when it comes time to shut the lights off, there's no awkward groping around the countertop for a switch, because they're remote-controlled.

Bloom shared a clip of the under-cabinet lights in action, with the overhead light dimmed to emphasize the warm glow.

"It does not look like LED," Bloom said. "It's perfect"

Commenters were quick to brainstorm new uses for the lights, which sell as a set of four strips for $40 on Amazon.

"Woah. Could probably use it in my dark linen closet," one commenter mused.

"I have the motion-activated one in my pantry which I LOVE," Bloom responded. "I had to recharge it for the first time after three weeks."

"My kid's grandpa wants lights for his display cabinet. I’m ordering these for him," another person wrote.

"These are perfect for that," Bloom encouraged.

The interior expert also told commenters that they could experiment with placement to get the most use out of the lights in their kitchens.

"I put mine towards the front," Bloom explained.

"I want to see more of the 'work space' because I do use them when I don’t want all the lights on."
