The importance of adding versatile lighting to your walk-in closet
A walk-in closet is so much more than simply a place to keep your clothes. It's where you develop your own style and design the person you want the rest of the world to see. The walk-in closet is your personal space, and it should be comfortable and functional to suit your needs.
The lighting in a walk-in closet must create an atmosphere that provides for functionality, but it must also be adaptable. Employ a variety of lighting fixtures to get the most out of your closet.
To best utilize the floor and wall space in your closet, overhead lighting is a must. In large walk-in closets, a small chandelier not only provides light but also atmosphere for the lady of the house. For smaller or more masculine walk-ins, use more traditional ceiling lights.
Shelves should be lined with track lighting so that clothing and accessories don't get hidden or overlooked in dark corners. Installing track lighting that uses separate dimmers shelf to shelf will come in handy. This will help focus your attention on certain fashions without being distracted by others.
Some colors and textures show off their true glory in a bright setting, so light should be able to wash over the walk-in closet. In addition to ceiling and track lights, employ spotlights in dark corners that shine straight up against the walls and toward the ceiling to make sure you're completely illuminated when judging a new look.
Lighting is important in every room of the house, but the walk-in closet should be able to give you an honest idea of how a look will appear in all of them. You'll be spending a lot of time making decisions in this room, so make sure the lighting is both comfortable, adjustable and functional.
