      Functional basement lighting – Perfect for laundry and storage rooms


      Basements are multi-functional rooms which can be used for laundry as well as storage space, so good lighting is essential. Classic ceiling lights are normally recommended in order to create enough light for a usually dark space. LED basement lights are advantageous since they are energy efficient and provide bright light, which is necessary when doing chores. You may find it useful to illuminate storage systems by wall and clip-on luminaires to ensure that you always find what you’re looking for. In laundry rooms it is crucial to install moisture proof luminaires due to the humidity.


      Important characteristics of basement lighting are:


      • Bright illumination for safety while working
      • Reliable sturdiness
      • High energy efficiency
      • Moisture proof luminaires in humid rooms like the laundry room

      Cosy basement lighting – for comfortable living rooms in the basement


      When relocating the living room to the basement, you should plan your lighting choices carefully. Due to the lack of daylight you should incorporate more lighting in this room than in the rest of the house. Starting with a ceiling lamp for the basic brightness in the room, it is recommended to work with accent lighting such as wall luminaires, floor lamps and clip-on luminaires on pictures, mirrors or shelves. This works especially well for parties, leisure or living rooms. If you need more inspiration for your living room lighting click here.
