Is your closet dark and dreary? It’s time to light it up! Take a look at some of our favorite tips for adding beautiful lighting to your walk-in closet.
Warm or Cold?
Are you a fan of warm or cool light? There are reasons you might prefer one over the other. The designers at Closet Envy know how to design with both warm and cool lighting.
Cool or warm actually refers to the color temperature of the light. Cool light looks more blue and warm light looks more yellow. The cooler the light the more it resembles daylight.
Cool light works great in modern closets with glossy finishes. It has a bright and clean look. Warm light is perfect for a closet full of wood tones. The warmer light really brings out the grain in the wood. There’s a lot to consider when you begin to look at what type of lighting you want in your closet.
Another logistical thing to consider is light bulb safety. Lighting in a closet should be covered with a shade of some kind. It is considered a fire hazard otherwise. Keep it covered to keep things safe!
Every closet needs an overhead light. It doesn’t have to be a bare bulb or builder grade flush mount light. Take your closet from boring to blingy with a fabulous chandelier. You don’t have to be a princess to feel like one every day.
If your closet doesn’t have wired lighting there are battery operated options out there. You can even invest in motion sensor style lights. Whether you go for fashion or function (or both!) it’s time for your closet to see the light!
Is It Black or Blue?
Does this shirt match these pants? Do I have on two different shoes? Is this shirt black or blue? These are the questions you may be asking yourself if your closet lacks lighting. In addition to overhead lights consider adding lights above each closet rod. From that point on you will be able to see exactly what your clothes look like together. No more leaving the house wearing one blue shoe and one black shoe! Don’t pretend it hasn’t happened, we’ve all been there.
Look! How Pretty!
Some people collect figurines, or dishes, or gear from their favorite sports team. Let’s give a very special shout out to the people who collect shoes!
