Hi,

Replacing bathroom cabinet which previous had an integrated incandescent fitting with a pull switch at the bottom and no wall switch.

New cabinet doesn’t have light so looking at getting a separate one. All seem to be LED fittings and many don’t seem to come with a driver.

What is the best way of way of wiring a switch into the new installation? Are there drivers with integrated switches? Or should I just wire in a switch between mains and driver? Or something else all together??

Thanks

Since LED "Drivers" are often hidden away what would be the point of adding a switch to them? (Rhetorical question)

I would suggest your second option, add a switch between the supply and the LED driver, that way the switch can be where you want, and you can hide the driver.
