A TV or other electronic component installed under a cabinet needs to flip up out of the way and rotate for convenience. Look for a separate place to permanently mount a tablet; it can be used to operate music, lights and other systems. Usually that’s in a niche a few steps away from the main cooking area.

Use strip lighting for long runs of countertop and puck lights for specific work spaces. LED lights don’t generate much heat and last a long time, while xenon can be less expensive. Pay attention to the quality of light. You don’t want it too blue or yellow.
