Choosing the Right Closet Light for your Closet

When you are choosing the proper lighting for your closet, you have to consider the safety of not only your clothes but of your house. Many closets owners install incandescent bulbs as their light source. These can heat up pretty quickly and can pose as a fire threat. But, there is a solution to this.



With companies producing modern LED light fixtures, your closet is not only safe but adequately lit. With so many choices to choose from, and at inexpensive prices, you’ll not only benefit from their safety but also their ability to save you money on your electricity bills.

Automatic LED Lights

Do you tend to forget turning off your closet light when you are in a rush? Now, you don’t have to hire an electrician to tap into your existing circuit to install a fluorescent fixture that runs outside your closet. Automatic LED lights conveniently turn off after moving a certain distance away from the sensor saving time and money with this installation. Not only that but they sufficiently fill a room with enough light to find all of your clothes.

Battery Power

For small closets, there is always the option of using an LED battery-operated light fixture. Many of them automatically turn off after a period of time in case you forget to. There are some models that can even stick on surfaces such as your closet shelf organizer. This is perfect for a compact space because you can purchase several of these and place them all around your closet, giving you proper lighting to find things – perfect for those dark corners. These are inexpensive options that you can find at your local hardware store.


If you have any walk in closet organizers in your closet, you can set up your LED lights to highlight your clothes. Your closet is your pallet, be creative with it. You can keep it looking dim to spotlight your best clothes, or you can brighten up the entire organizer by placing them in conjunction to each other. Their flexibility is why they are valued by closet owners.

Summing It All Up

If you’re looking for a closet lighting solution, consider purchasing an LED light. Throw away your old incandescent bulbs and convert to a more energy-efficient and cost-saving alternative. These easy-to-install light sources can be found in your local hardware store. Don’t forget they look great when placed around your closet, providing illumination with style.
