Hi All.

Not sure whats out there, Heres the scoop.

4' wide full height pantry, +- 6" between the shelfs and the door. Ful shelfs, I know a flourescent won't give any usefull light.
What is avail;able for vertical, down the inside of the pantry along the door jam.

Ideas and suggestions welcome.

Thanks leland.

So you mean there is only +- 6" between the front of the shelf and the door jam?
How about fluorescent undercabinets lights from JUNO mounted vertically on the 6" available space.

Or the same fixtures mounted under every shelf?

Yes, I was thinking something along the lines (size) of like.... Rope lighting (example). Bi-fold doors


fluorescent undercabinets lights

Each shelf or that way is way overkill.

I have a fluorescent strip mounted above the door header in my pantry and the lighting is fine.

Remember that light will enter thru the open door. You are not trying to light a cave.

Ya, considerd that, Thought that it would not filter down.
Maybe a reflector would help?
Pantry is about 24" deep, pretty standard, just solid shelfs.
