Light Switch Placement - kitchen

4 years ago

I'm remolding my kitchen and expanding the opening between the dinning room to the kitchen (6ft opening) for better flow. My contractor is suggesting putting the light switches for the kitchen (uc lighting, pendants and can lights) on the side of the expanded dinning room wall prior to walking into my kitchen so you can turn the lights on before walking in the kitchen. Is that the usual placement for light switches for a kitchen prior to walking into a room? So technically you see the switches on the dinning room wall side but they are for the kitchen. Also, should my UC lighting switch be on that switch plate or should it be on the backslash somewhere?
