Your closet may be one of the smaller spaces in your home, but it's also one that screams out for the right lighting design. After all, being able to see your wardrobe clearly can mean the difference between leaving your home ready to walk the runway or facing the world sporting a mishmash of clashing prints.

Seeing Clearly
In many parts of the home, you'll want to avoid too much brightness. However, closets are one area where maximum illumination is essential. With that in mind, consider how the color temperatures associated with LED light bulbs can help you out. A warmer, brighter bulb will be preferable to cooler, dimmer lighting in your closet.

If you're lucky enough to call a large walk-in closet your own, you may also want to invest in automatic sensor lights that will illuminate the space as soon as you enter. This will not only offer greater convenience, it will cut back on the risk of tripping over your shoes and falling the next time you walk into your darkened wardrobe.

As an added bonus, the days of forgetting to turn off the closet light and wasting energy will be history!
