rocker switches for undercabinet lighting okay?
Hi, this is a great site that has helped me many-a-time!
I am about to have kitchen backsplash tile installed soon. I also plan to install LED undercabinet lighting. I found the existing 15amp circuit that has the kitchen ceiling lights (and various other lights on the same floor) and am thinking I can hardwire/piggyback the 24v DC converter off it. The lights take a total of 75 watts.
But to avoid going from a 1 gang box to a 2 gang box, I am wondering if I can do a dual or triple rocker switch. They take up the space of one normal wall light switch, by stacking the switches sideways; I've done exactly this to control whole house fans.
I am wondering if aesthetically, this is too uncommon and odd. The switch is in a prominent location, by an entryway to the kitchen. Thanks for any thoughts on this!
