    Hi! I live in Jamaica and have a walk in closet (approx. 9' by 5'). There is no power socket in the closet, only a single wall mounted sconce type light fitting at about 8 foot high (currently has a 60w screw-in incandescent). I am going to re-fit the closet with cabinet work (closetmaid) and would like to replace the sconce light fitting with 4 or 5 led cabinet lights, similar to IKEA's FORMAT closet lights.

    I believe these light fitting typically run off a wall socket plug outlet, which I don't currently have in the closet. I am conscious I probably can't/shouldn't just replace the sconce light fighting with a 15amp wall plug outlet. What should I do?

    Apologies if this has been asked before but I couldn't see anything along these lines in the forum. Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be given.
