The Denver Building and Fire Code sets out the mandatory minimum standards for building construction in Denver. This code is based on international standards for safe and livable structures, so it's important to be able to control the lighting. To do this, you should consider adding a switch to each set of lights. Additionally, if you're doing a remodel, you should install a 20-amp circuit for general lighting, as you never know what your future needs might be.
