Above kitchen cabinet lighting

In the process of painting the kitchen, I used to have rope lighting, that gave out and installed simple LED strips. One section is a dim compared to the rests so figure now is good time to replace while all the junk is down.

Anybody seen anything new, different, cool??

If not I may just get a new set, maybe one with color controls!

If you're going to replace why not get the kind of LED strips that can change color and brightness. And maybe Kelvin temp also.

I just ordered some, we have 2 sets of cabinets, one is 6' the other is 18' so most of each 32' kit will get thrown in the trash.

Maybe I can splice them into the existing power supply and ad some mood lighting to my work bench!!

Those should be tricolor strips. You can do all colors. The three LED's blend the colors.

The kit does all colors, 6 levels of brightness, it flashes, it fades, it changes colors, you can even program it do do all the above.

I opted for the non smart phone version, not going there!
