I had the same problem. I bought a mains rated push-button switch which operates push-off. I fitted this into a small plastic box, and mounted the box such that the door presses the switch button when the door is closed.
This has the advantage - IMSMC unlike the Ikea switch which is co-mounted with the lamp - that the lamp can be fitted anywhere in the cupboard. With a suitably rated switch and some suppression even a fluorescent or PLE can be used. I ran a supply from a nearby circuit and fed it to the configuration through a switched fused spur outlet so that I could make the circuit safe in the event of need of maintenance.
