Question about running lamp cord behind drywall


Most of the fluorescent undercabinet fixtures are 1"-1 1/2" deep. Not much deeper than a puck light.

I have work on some of the house which it is worst than your situation and the most common methold is use the surface florurscent as K_Buz mention in the photo.

That is the most common way we deal with low closet height.

I too would not use those puck lights. I have some in the kitchen....and as soon as we are done the 2-story addition, I'm redoing the kitchen (again) and those lights are going....I'll either do T5 or LED pucks.

Question about running lamp cord behind drywall


Turns out the fixtures I bought didn't fit either, so I broke down and got some flourescents. But you guys were right, and I was pleasantly surprised at how thin a profile they offer nowadays!
