Re: Under Cupboard Downlights for Flat Pack Kitchen Cupboard2

It can be quite easily done in a number of ways - it sounds like you want to put lamps in the top of the cabinets providing internal illumination?
There are quite a few lamp options that are specifically fabricated at 16mm thick; these can be set flush into the top board of the carcass, wires (and transformer if required) get run above the cabinet to the power source/switch - these can be simply left on top of the cabinet or concealed with a bulkhead or decorative trim.
If you want to do a similar thing but with the lamps mounted in the base of the cabinet illuminating the benchtop you can get a melamine board cut to the internal dimensions of the base of the wall unit - again the lamps get flush mounted in the base board and the wires and hole can be covered with the second board; the frame from the door will conceal the second board when the doors are closed.
Lots of lighting suppliers can help you with the lamps you are after; Haefle also have a very nice minimal LED lamp that I am particularly fond of but it is not the cheapest solution.

Way more info required! What colour are your bench tops, what colour are your walls, what sort of splashbacks to you have? Without more info its like shooting in the dark!
