Well, I made a mistake. I was so excited about simplifying and switching to a headboard-free platform bed last year, but then I realized that, without a headboard, there’s no way to run curtains behind the bed. Whoops. I experimented by removing all of the curtains in our bedroom, like I had in my home office, but our bedroom is much, much bigger than my office, so the lack of curtains felt too glaring for my taste. I tried. I really did try! Last month, I put one set of curtains back up, but left the other window bare until I could figure out a solution.

Having that single pair of drapes up on the one window proved that I really wanted to have panels back up on both windows. Curtains have this amazing ability to add a lot to a room, like extra height, elegance, and softness. The problem was how to have them in our bedroom when we didn’t have a headboard. Our room isn’t so big that we can have the bed pushed up against a wall without windows (well, there’s one wall where that would work, but you know I like having options). My favorite place for a bed to sit is on the wall opposite the entry so you see it right when you walk through the door. Unfortunately, there’s a window off to the side, and the bed inevitably ends up partially beneath it.

After weighing all of my options (and living with one curtain-less window for longer than I’d like to admit), I finally decided the best thing to do would be to upgrade our bed. A new frame would ultimately allow me to have all the rearranging options I could ever come up with, and I also realized that a headboard would add a mature statement back to our room, too. So, it was worth it for me to pass our old bed along to someone else and order a new one because it gave me design options while also fixing a functional issue that needed addressing (i.e. the curtains).

I’ve been so impressed with the furniture we’ve ordered from Inmod in the past, so their website was one of the first I looked at while hunting for a new bed frame. We already have their Emerson Nightstands, which flank either side of our bed, so it was a pretty easy decision to go with the Inmod Prescott Bed in ‘Walnut’ to match. I appreciate how fast Inmod’s shipping always is, and how straightforward their pieces are to assemble. This is our third Inmod order, and I have had zero complaints the entire way through.

John and I were able to put the bed together in under an hour one Saturday morning without any trouble, and I immediately hung up my curtain panel. It was like magic. All of my design problems were solved with that one bed. Our room feels so much more sophisticated now that we have a headboard back in the space, and my new matching curtains make it feel complete.

As far as a review of the bed itself, it’s absolutely the nicest one we’ve ever owned. It’s super sturdy with no wobble, and was straightforward to put together. It comes with all the hardware you need, and a single front-and-back page of instructions. Definitely not overwhelming. The finish is really nice, too. The dark wood is the perfect neutral brown color (not too red, not too gray), and I love the sleek mid-century lines of the piece. We will have this bed for a long, long, long time. You can quote me on that!

How To Install Under-Cabinet Lighting

I’ve spoken about it time and time again, so my apologies for being a broken record, but our kitchen is dark. As you can see in the “before” picture below, it has just one window that looks out onto a covered carport, so there’s little to no natural sunlight to speak of. We’ve been working year after year to add functional brightness to this room through artificial task lighting, but I think today’s project has officially crossed the goal off our list. I teamed up with Jasco Products to try out their Prolink Plug-in LED Under-Cabinet Light Fixtures purchased at Home Depot, and it has been the final piece to the puzzle that we were missing. We can finally see while we cook!

You might remember that we had installed a few dinky battery-powered lights a couple years ago, and while they were handy to have (especially during a power outage), the short lifespan of the batteries and dim output of light meant that we hardly ever used them. What a waste! I should have sprung for the plug-in version from the get-go because it turns out that they’re not expensive and they don’t take much time at all to put in. I was able to knock this whole project out on my own without an electrician in under thirty minutes. I’m sharing the step-by-step tutorial with you below in case this project has been on your list for a while, too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

1. Prolink Plug-in LED Under Cabinet Light Fixture

2. Drill

3. 3/32″ drill bit

4. Phillips head screwdriver

5. Pencil

6. Cable clamps

NOTE: Do not install while connected to power. Make sure the area where you plan to install the lights is dry. Map out your light location to ensure outlets are near enough for the plug to reach.

Step One: Mark Screw Locations

Decide where you want to install your light bars. We chose to hang three under the cabinets surrounding our stove since that’s where we work most often while cooking. Hold the bar up to the underside of the cabinet, and use a pencil to mark through the two holes on either end of the bar onto the cabinet surface. Set the light bar aside and pre-drill holes where you marked under the cabinets.

Step Two: Insert Screws

Use a Phillips head screwdriver to sink the screws into the underside of the cabinet where you pre-drilled holes. Leave the screw sticking out from the cabinet surface by about 1/4 of an inch so you have enough space to slip the light bar over top in the next step.

Step Three: Mount Fixture

Line the holes of the light bar up over the screw heads, and push it up and over the screws. Slide it to the side to secure it over the screws, then tighten the screws so that the light bar is snugly pressed up against the underside of the cabinet. Use the screw hole covers that came with the light bar to hide the mounting hardware from sight.

Step Four: Plug Into Outlet

Plug your light bar up to the nearest outlet, and turn it on to double-check that it’s working and able to reach a power source. There’s a small dial to one end of the light bar where you can adjust the light tone from warm light, cool light, or daylight.

Step Five: Clamp Up Cords

Use cable clamps to hide the light bar cord from sight. Just curl it up against the cabinet underside back and forth behind the light bar so that you can no longer see it. After that you’re finished! You might have noticed that I ended up turning my light bar around so that the light source was along the back. I found that the light bounced off nicely that way against our white subway tile, and the backward orientation made the bulb less visible from the front. You can hang it whichever way you’d like.

I’ve always known good lighting makes all the difference when it comes to design and living comfortably in a space, but I don’t think I fully appreciated that fact until this past year spent largely at home. Our kitchen feels like such a professional work space now that it’s properly lit. New under-cabinet lighting has been an absolute game-changer from a function standpoint, but also an aesthetic one. It makes the space feel so inviting and cozy, and really plays up all of the design features we’ve added to the room, like paint and wallpaper.

Now I’m planning to add some of the same types of lights to our closet and laundry room so that those areas feel more functional, too. Jasco Products offers all sorts of different styles of lights to choose from (bars, pucks, etc.), and you can connect them to each other for even more customization. I was genuinely impressed! Where could you stand to add more task lighting in your home? Shop Jasco’s Prolink Plug-in LED Under-Cabinet Light Fixtures from Home Depot this way.
