led up-light on top floating shelf?

last year

I've never seen led lighting put facing toward the ceiling on the top floating shelf in a kitchen, and I wonder why. Down lighting is common, but it leaves a dark area above the top shelf. We'll have two floating shelves with down-lighting, and I'm thinking about doing a strip of up-light on the top shelf at the back of the shelf closer to the wall. There will be 2' between the surface of the top shelf and the ceiling, and the led strip will have a diffuser, so I don't think any light reflected off the ceiling will be harsh. But I wonder why it's never done. Thoughts? TIA!
