Custom Kitchen Grow Light Shelves for Herbs

December 30, 2018

Fluorescent fixtures are relatively small, and you can mount them to all sorts of structures. If you have only a small space on the kitchen counter under the cabinets, you can mount an individual fluorescent fixture for one T5 tube right there. This is a perfect spot for a few leafy kitchen herbs, such as basil or chives.

I designed these custom kitchen grow shelves to keep fresh herbs handy in my kitchen. I had an electrician run the lamp wires into the wall to connect to power and mounted a light switch to turn them off and on.
