Simple 3, Gang Switch Wiring Galleries - If you can tolerate it, i might pass the 2-ways to the prevailing double transfer and the 3-manner or smart switch inside the full-height area. Switches could be less expensive and more to be had in case you do. My current plan is to put into effect the solution provided by using a. I. Breveleri with the minor alternate endorsed with the aid of redgrittybrick to make the steady hots black and the switched hots red. So the final result, if i'm now not improper, will appear like this:.
Edit i see your extended diagram explains the kitchen mild switch changed into not a useless quick but simply electricity to the switch. You had the white marked black however have corrected that during your final drawing. Using pink for the switched power and travelers is the higher approach as others talked about. Your very last drawing looks electrically sound. With your present day wiring it is not possible, however the nec calls for a neutral at transfer locations with some exceptions. In case you aren't being inspected you could remember this 'grandfathered' wiring. Inside the future, you must take a neutral to the transfer location. Of direction you can reactivate the 3-manner.

The hot twine from mild usually goes to the common terminal of the second one transfer. The traveller wires cross from switch to replace related to the vacationer terminals, it doesn't matter which. As long as you hold this in thoughts, a three-way circuit turns into truely simplified. And of course the neutral will continually cross at once to the burden.".
