Toe Kick Light Switch - Possible/How/Help?

14 years ago

I am embarking on a kitchen remodel and have a question I cannot seem to find an answer to.

I would like to move the wall switch that operates the light over the sink to the toe kick at the base of my sink cabinet. My questions are:

1.Has anyone ever heard of, or seen this?

2.Any electrical codes prohibiting placement of light switches near the floor?

3.I would like a switch that could easily be tapped on and tapped off. (Not a rocker or flip style switch.)

4.Where might someone find this elusive type of light switch? Should probably be a pretty heavy-duty switch.

Any advice appreciated. This site has been a great resource in planning my kitchen. This is the first time I have felt the need to post a question.
