Closet Lighting Ideas and Options

Why should your favorite shoes hide in the dark? Shine a light on your best clothing and accessories with these closet lighting suggestions.

The right closet lighting ideas and options can help highlight your clothes and accessories and make things easier to find.

While organization is certainly key to keeping any closet in order, even the most efficient storage can, quite literally, remain unseen without appropriate closet lighting.

A closet with an ample amount of space, such as a walk-in closet, allows for creative lighting solutions like chandeliers and other overhead decorative fixtures. Large track lighting that runs along either side of a closet is also a simple choice that will keep individual cubby spaces and shelves well-lit.

Simple do-it-yourself closet lighting options include light fixtures that are mounted to the walls or ribbon lighting that runs along the perimeter of a closet. Be sure to also choose warm, light paint colors that will help a space to look large rather the contained feeling dark colors can give a small closet.

Of course, if a total renovation is in the works, then careful planning can also allow for better closet lighting. When designing your new closet, consider relocating to a space that allows for a window to be in the midst of your clothing storage. This allows for natural closet lighting, keeping your items in clear view.
