Skip pricey LED under-cabinet light fixtures if they require running new wiring. Instead, go for LED adhesive tape lights and save up to $500, including labor. Available at home centers, these peel-and-stick flexible LED circuit-board strips come in various levels of brightness and can be cut to length. Best of all, they plug into any outlet, such as one for a wall-mount microwave or an over-the-range vent hood.
When the lights go out, the party’s on. Let it glow all summer with glow sticks and drinkware from Party City! Throw a glow-in-the-dark party that will leave your guests with all the highlights. For added effect, illuminate your glow with fluorescent black lights.
