How to Create the Perfect Lighting in Your Closet

Lighting is about more than just being able to see in any space. It’s about creating an ambiance and setting the tone for the room that you’re in. Whether it’s a kitchen, master bathroom, or walk-in closet, the lighting is crucial for creating the perfect environment. 

While aesthetically pleasing, lighting can also be an unnecessary expense. So don’t feel the need to go custom if you don’t have to. With the proper closet design that maximized the space you currently have available, you can get everything you need out of your lighting without making huge changes or spending extra on custom designs. 

Whether you’re redesigning a new closet or simply installing a new organization system, we’re sharing some general tips to help you plan the perfect lighting in your space. The best part? You don’t need to budget for expensive lighting upgrades to make these improvements!

Types of Lights

LED lights are a smart decision for your closet, both economically and aesthetically. LED lights make your closet brighter while also saving you money with their energy-efficiency in the long run. They last for many years, don’t need to be changed frequently, and give off minimal heat. While LEDs may sound too bright in your space, you can easily add dimmer-style switches for more control of how much light they give off.

Consider Functionality 

The right lighting for your closet space can be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Don’t feel like you need to sacrifice one for the other. Custom closet systems from Victory Closets make the best use of your home’s existing lighting and take into consideration what you’re working with from the start. Not sure what that means or looks like? We have a team of design experts ready to help you every step of the way! Take the guesswork out of the design and planning process by working with our team on your project. 

Adding the Right Details
