No matter how organized it is, I tend to avoid my bedroom closet, keeping all of my most-worn pieces on my clothing rack instead. Why, you may wonder? For one, my closet is absolutely packed, and when you factor in that it also has no overhead lighting, finding the item I’m looking for becomes a major undertaking. As a renter, installing a ceiling light is out of the question — but that doesn’t mean the situation is entirely hopeless.

After hearing about the transformative effects of adhesive, motion-sensor lights for a while, I finally decided to do some research and figure out what the best options on the market are. Naturally, Amazon’s top-seller — over 10,000 were sold in the last month alone — came up, and after reading the reviews, I’m convinced that I should buy sets for my kitchen and bathroom, too. Read on for exactly why shoppers can’t get enough of the MCGOR Under Cabinet Lights (which are 20% off right now!).

What are the MCGOR Under Cabinet Lights?

Adhesive lights may be a small, budget-friendly change, but they’ll have a huge impact on your space, improving its appearance and functionality. These lights — you’ll get two 10-inch strips for just $24 — install easily, according to reviewers. The metal plates can stick anywhere, and the light portion attaches to the plate via magnets. To charge them, you just have to dislodge the lights from their magnetic base and plug in the USB cable. It’s as simple as that! You can also remove the light and use it as a flashlight, which will certainly come in handy.

Once installed, they’ll detect motion within 10 feet, turning off after 20 seconds of stillness. That means your closet will be illuminated the second you open the door, and the battery will be saved as soon as you’ve found what you’re looking for. The same goes for under your kitchen cabinets or in the pantry — your lights will conveniently turn on instantly and hands-free. 

What really puts these over the top is that you can also turn off the motion-sensing feature whenever you need to. If you’ll be rooting around in your closet or pantry for a while, you can set it to its six-hour-long “always-on” mode. Plus, the LED lights are powerful enough to make your entire closet visible, but you can also opt to dim them, selecting one of the lower levels of brightness (out of the five options overall).

What Amazon Reviewers are Saying

Average Rating: 4.5/5

“How I lived my life with out these, I have no idea! I wish I had gotten them sooner. I bought one set for the kitchen pantry closet and another set for my husbands clothing closet. The motion detection is spot on I don’t have to wave around to turn it on. It gets super bright but has 5 brightness options which is nice. Was super easy to stick the magnets to the wall and the light panels just attach.” – Tina

“If you are looking for a set of under cabinet lights that take less than a minute to install, and that have motion detect that works every time, then these are the lights for you. I was so impressed with this set I bought another set two days later. They are bright, easy to charge and super easy to install. Highly recommended.” – Mike B.

“These lights are nice touch to our kitchen! The push setting allows me to turn them on and off during the day to save on battery life. I enjoy them because I can now see what I’m doing on the countertop when I’m cooking (on bright). The option to change them to motion at night is key. My kids like the motion option so the kitchen lights ups when they come in during the night to get a drink.” – Kate

Once you add them to your closet, I have no doubt that you’ll want to grab more for your kitchen and vanity, too. In addition to making things more accessible, they’ll instantly add an air of luxury to your space. You can even take it from a professional food stylist, who told us that “it makes [her pantry] feel so much fancier and showcases all [her] special food items.” Consider me sold!
