Every morning, around the uncivilized hour of 4AM, our cats decide it's time for breakfast. As I don't want to subject my sleep-shut eyes to the full light of the kitchen, I flip on some undercabinet lights to gently illuminate my way.
This toekick detail would accomplish the same objective. I really appreciate the extra effort taken by the designers to specify such a refined fixture. A too-common alternative, rope-style lighting, is pretty cheesy to me; with its every bulb reflected upon the floor, the effect is similar to what you might find in a discotheque, circa 1972. roundhousedesign.com
