I'm thinking of taking on a new project. We recently decided to use this hallway closet as our kitchen pantry. Previously, these goods were stored on a bookshelf in the kitchen. It looked like a dorm room.
Since this closet has no light source, other than what spills in from the hallway and kitchen, my plan is to add a 16 foot LED strip across the inside door jamb, connected to a push-type switch that will turn the lights on when the door is opened, and off when closed.
There is no power in the closet, but in the picture that shows my hand pointing, there is an outlet on the opposite wall from which I am planning to draw power to the closet switch. The switch will be wired to the LED power supply, which will be wired to the LEDs. That's the plan at least.
I have listed that parts I'm planning to use, but that is likely to change. I'm just posting what I've found online so far.
Attached are a few photos and a diagram of my scheme. I welcome constructive thoughts from this knowledgable forum. My handyman status is probably a 6.5 on a scale of 1-10.
