Hi there
I'm trying to tidy up a few finishes on a kitchen in a new build property (the finish wasn't quite as nice as it could be). I could use some advice please.

I'm going to replace the undercabinet lighting with strip lights. (currently they have trailing wires and are a bit bulky). Then I want to add a glass splashback. Then I want to add a flat panel of high-gloss underneath the wall cabinets. Currently underneath the wall cabinets you can see all the joins of the units and all the drilled holes. I don't want a pelmet which sits vertically at the edge of the cabinet, but to lay flat underneath a whole sheet of wood to cover everything.

a) does anyone have any good advice on things to beware of here (I'm getting workmen to do the work, but need to direct them how I want things).

b) Are there any set rules for which order to fit these things and what size gaps to leave? I'm assuming I should fit the glass splashback first, flush with the back wall. Then fit the strip light on the underside of the cabinet facing down? then fit the flat panel of wood, leaving enough room at the back so there is a channel which the strip light sits in.
If this is the correct process - is it wise to make the channel quite thick, so the light is not too covered by the panel? Any advice welcome please!
