I'm installing some floor to ceiling cabinets and due to the existing configuration, a light switch will need to be moved to the side of the cabinet.
Ultimately, I would like it to look like this when the cab is installed.
What is the recommended way to route wiring from the original switch's electrical box to a new box on the cabinet.
I'm thinking I should do surface routing inside the cabinet into a box that I will install in side of the cabinet as I would dry wall.
My questions are..
For the box on the side of the cabinet, can it just be the cheap blue type new work 1U box. I notice those don't have a 1/2 inch round port for PVC tubing which I would use to route the cable to the switch. Furthermore, we will be accessing the inside of the cabinet, so I'm wondering if there is something neater / safer.
For the box in the wall that had the original switch - how do I cover that up and route cable out of it? I can figure out what type of cover to use that will let me make a connection in the box and route 1/2 inch pvc out.
Last - If there's a better option than 1/2" PVC to use as a cable conduit, I'm all ears.
