    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 light fixtures due to the humidity.


    Important characteristics of basement lighting are:


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

    Cozy basement lighting—for comfortable living rooms in the basement


    When adding a 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. Start with a ceiling fixture for the basic brightness in the room. It is recommended to add accent lighting such as wall fixtures, floor lamps and clip-on lights on pictures, mirrors or shelves. This works especially well for parties and family rooms.
