I believe code will not allow a hanging light fixture within 12 inches of a shelf so I'm thinking about installing 2 vertical 4-foot strip-lights mounted on the wall just inside the closet, one each side of the door. The strip-lights are similar-to/the-same-as the under-cabinet lights one would use in the kitchen, although they would have a clear cover and be cool enough to touch . These lights would be hard wired into the wall switch or perhaps a door activated contact switch.
Does anyone know if this type of lighting solution would pass code?
