Adding an additional Blue LED in the basement

Hey everyone, Iím picking up a new Northpoint 387RDFS shortly and it has a single switched LED light in the main storage area under the bedroom (basement). I have a ton of storage in the rear of this unit as well as up front, so Iím going to be installing a mini refrigerator in that space next to the TV to create a mini outside (dry) kitchen/bar area. Iíd like to add a blue LED light strip to the upper front of the storage area so it would be concealed from sight but it would illuminate the fridge and the space next to it when switched on. I know I can tie into the power from the existing light, but I donít want the white bright light on when the LED is on. How can I add a separate switch for the blue light, and have a separate switch for the white general light? Is this an easy fix?

A couple of questions:
  • Where is the white light switch located? In the unit itself or on the wall?
  • What does the blue light look like? Does it have its own switch?
I ask to find out if the power to the white light is constant or switched from the wall. If your white light is switched from the wall, you'll need to tap into the wiring at the wall switch or find an alternate constant power source.

Get back to us with more info, we can help!

The white light is one of those 6Ē diameter round lights that has its own on/off switch on it. Iím guessing I can buy a blue LED strip that just has the wires attached.
