Small Places that Need Lighting the Most

Harold’s Lighting – Options for every size budget

Good lighting is essential to every room, we think every designer can agree on that.  Great lighting can make a huge difference visually anywhere.  There are, however, some small places that often go unlit.  These small places need light just as much if not more than the larger areas of them home, but often times go over looked.

Here are some small areas we’ve found that need to be illuminated that many homeowner’s forget about:


Closests, no matter how tiny or crammed with stuff, need to be properly illuminated.  This is especially true for closets that get used frequently (like in the bedroom).  How annoying is it when you can’t find the other shoe and your in a rush?  A good light source, wether they are wall sconces or just a regular old bulb on the ceiling can help reduce stress and help you organize and take inventory of your supplies and clothing.


Entryways are your chance to make a good first impression.  They are, of course, the first part of your home people will see, and it’s important to make sure it looks nice.  A nice warm light emitting fixture can set the mood of your home as well as providing enough light for you to find your keys and organize your belongings.


People are spending more and more times in their bathrooms than ever before.  Instead of using a bathroom as a place to accomplish tasks, more people are using the space as a place to relax and unwind.  Ideally, this space should be lit using multiple layers of light.  The lighting shouldn’t be too harsh, but enough to accomplish tasks and for grooming.
