We also have a variety of lighting options, and understand the difference that good lighting can make. Keep reading to learn more!

Why Is Closet Lighting Important?

A well-lit closet is easy to navigate and organize, and feels more accessible. Closet lighting can be more than just functional – a well-lit closet looks better, too. On the other hand, a dark closet is difficult to use, difficult to declutter, and you can easily lose items within it. A good lighting system will streamline the use of your closet, making it easier to find the things you need and remember where everything is. It will also help you craft better outfits, because clothing appears clearer and more vibrant. You won’t be blindsided by stains that couldn’t be spotted in the dark.

Types of Closet Lighting

There are numerous different styles of closet lighting, ranging from understated to opulent. Which is right for your closet?

Under-Cabinet Lighting

These lights are built directly into your cabinets, which makes them extremely useful. Under-cabinet lighting is perfect for jewelry and accessory drawers, but can be installed just about anywhere. These lights will make it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Recessed Lighting 

Recessed lighting is installed within a hole in the ceiling, which allows it to seamlessly integrate with your closet. This type of lighting is very common in modern homes, and provides great general lighting.

Track Lights

This lighting style has bulbs aligned to a track. Available in a wide range of styles, these can be used as decoration as well as lighting.


For a truly luxurious lighting experience, chandeliers are perfect. Ideal for large walk-in closets, a chandelier is as much about beauty and decor as it is functional lighting. You’ll feel like royalty with a beautiful chandelier in your closet.
