Why Lighting is an essential part of your custom closet plans

Thoughtful lighting is key when you build your new closet. It helps you create the right atmosphere and it is also pretty convenient when you try to choose your clothes for the next day or when you want to see clearly the colors.

Never underestimate the power of a good lighting source to showcase your closet in a more dramatic fashion!

So what you should know about lighting when it comes to custom closets?

Make it functional

Let’s be clear, the number one benefit of lighting is visibility. You need to be able to sort through your clothes and accessories effortlessly. You will be able to access and identify precisely all your belongings without hesitation.

Just talk to us about your functional needs and also your aesthetic request so we can take both into account and design the perfect custom closet for you. Coastal Closet Designs’ only wish is to create the best custom closets in Delaware, nothing less.

Make it simple and elegant

Don’t overthink it and don’t try to add unnecessary details. More often than not, less is more. A well-placed light can make a big difference in your closet.

If you have an easy to access an electrical outlet, we can easily install brand new lights to illuminate your space. Keep in mind that light doesn’t always travel everywhere through your shelving unless they are made of glass of course. Instead of one single puck light, we recommend installing ribbon lights. Why? Because they cast a beautiful glow over your clothing.

Install your new lights in strategic spots

Under the bottom shelf (pointing down at the floor) and above the top shelf (pointing up at the ceiling) are the perfect places to start with. It will add a whole new dimension to your closet and enhance the finishes and colors you have chosen.

If there is a specific element you want to highlight, you can install a puck light especially for it. Play with mirrors and doors with glossy surfaces. There are literally a million ways to arrange your custom closet. Be creative!

The era of dark and small is over, it is time to transform your walk-in closet into a luxury piece of art and give it a boutique look that will never fail to impress your guests.

This way you will be able to vary the intensity of light. Dimmer switches and sensor switches can add an extra touch. Create the desired mood and affect in seconds with our lighting options and experience the luxury of a true hands-free option.
