Lighting For Wet Areas, And Alternative To Under Cabinet Lighting


Couple questions as I am tired of wiring junction boxes for the 5' long cords you get with the puck style undercabinet lights. I don't like the fluorescent style (but they can be wired using romex.) Anyone know of any good alternatives, that look nice? Also, I have seen pictures of lighted areas of bathrooms, steam rooms, etc that are obviously in wet, damp areas. Any suggestions on what might pass code/inspection?
Thanks in advance

Can the LED pucks be hardwired using romex? The last job we used strips, they were ok but didn't like how the plug looked under the cabinet.
Just wondering what everyone else is using
Thanks

The maxim series isn't bad, 120 v, hardwire with a switch that for two different lighting settings. I'm not crazy about hiding transformers in cabinets, looking for everything to be neat and clean. Here are some pics of them..just not crazy about the fluorescent look. Customer was great on this project though..had everything picked out and in place when we needed it, was a full demo and re-do. We did everything except install the granite.
