I have a bathroom with one light fixture centered above a double sink. I would like to convert this to two light fixtures.
There are two areas that make sense for new junction boxes now. I don't really like old-work boxes. In one section, I can hit a stud right next to the opening. In the other case, I have clear access to both studs but I'd need a brace (similar to the ceiling fan braces between joists).
My issue is that circular boxes and braces seem to be meant for ceilings (and joists) rather than walls (and studs).
The boxes themselves have Ceiling stamped in them. Is using ceiling boxes/braces in a wall allowed by code? I could not find any marketing materials or code that they are allowable for wall use versus ceiling even though intuitively they'd feel strong enough.
