    Is it ok practice to use a 3 gang, 1 way switch box instead of a junction box, with neutrals connected together?

    Got a live feed in from another junction box but trying to keep the system neat...for 3 lights i would need three 4-terminal junction boxes so wondering if it's better or ok to use the switch instead?

    Yes, perfectly fine, and probably better than junction boxes which will inevitably be concealed under floors and other inaccessible places.

    May need a deeper backbox to fit the wires in.
