There are some overlooked places in your home that need proper lighting. A good example is a closet. Whether a closet is small or large, proper lighting is essential for safety and good illumination. When building a new space or upgrading an existing one, these tips will help you choose the ideal lighting. 

Safety first

Closet lighting fixtures should be installed at least 12 inches away from where your clothes will be stored. Light and heat from bulbs can be harmful to your clothes especially if exposed for extended periods. Avoid heat issues by choosing LED or compact fluorescent (CFL) over incandescent lights. Using LEDs or CFLs in your closet provides the right amount of light, gives off less heat and saves energy. 

Halogen lights generate a significant amount of heat. They are not suitable for enclosed spaces like closets so avoid halogen fixtures in this application. 

Color temperature

Consider the color temperature of the lightbulbs you select. A color temperature within the range of 3000k-3500k provides bright, white light that is perfect for a closet. Selecting the right color temperature allows you to see the color of your clothes more accurately: no more guessing if your pants are black or dark blue.

Illuminate dark areas

Many closets include shelves and cabinets. Natural light or wall-mounted fixtures may not reach the far corners of these spaces. Consider installing under cabinet lighting to brighten the darker corners. Under-cabinet lighting comes in assorted sizes that can be customized for your closet. LED tape lights offer endless possibilities because of their thin profile and flexibility.

Choosing the perfect light for your closet can make big impact on your space. Keep these tips in mind as you plan your updates. If you do not have existing fixtures, consult with an experienced electrician to help with installation and placement.

Smart home devices are becoming increasingly popular among U.S. property owners. Yet deciding which smart house gadgets – if any – are right for you may prove to be difficult. Fortunately, there are several things that you can do to determine if a smart home device is a must-have, such as:

1. Consider a Smart Home Device's Purpose

A smart home device that works well for one homeowner might fail to meet the needs of another property owner. If you assess a smart home device's purpose closely, you can determine if a particular gadget matches your expectations.

For example, if you are searching for a quick, easy way to keep your home's floors dirt- and debris-free, a smart robot vacuum may be ideal. This vacuum will take the guesswork out of cleaning your house's floors. Best of all, this device will allow you to speed up the process of vacuuming your house.

On the other hand, if you are on the lookout for energy-efficient lighting, smart light bulbs could provide viable investments. These light bulbs are simple to install throughout a house. Furthermore, smart light bulbs will continue to perform for an extended period of time.

2. Evaluate Your Finances

Your budget may dictate your smart home device investments. If you analyze your finances, you can establish smart home device priorities. Then, you can gradually integrate smart home devices into your residence.

It usually is a good idea to take a slow, steady approach to smart home device purchases. If you try to do too much at once, you risk spending beyond your means to acquire and install smart home devices across your residence.

3. Shop Around

There is no shortage of state-of-the-art smart home devices available at both online and brick-and-mortar retailers. Thus, if you conduct an in-depth search for smart house gadgets, you may find quality devices that won't force you to exceed your budget.

Of course, if you shop around for smart home devices, you can differentiate between average gadgets and best-in-class ones. You also can use online tools and resources to learn about different smart home devices and select gadgets that will perform consistently.

4. Keep Things Simple

Investing in smart home devices should be a fun, exciting experience – not a stressful one. If you feel overwhelmed as you search for smart home gadgets, take a step back and review your options. This may help you alleviate your worries and re-start your search for smart house gadgets with a fresh perspective.

Lastly, it sometimes helps to collaborate with family members and friends as you shop for smart home devices. Family members and friends can help you weigh the pros and cons associated with smart house gadgets. With the support of family members and friends, you could boost the likelihood of making an informed smart home device purchase.

Take advantage of the aforementioned tips, and you could pick up a wide range of smart home devices that will help you transform your ordinary house into a spectacular residence.
