What is the best type of lighting for a walking closet?
When thinking about illuminating a closet, which normally is a storage area that could contain clothing, wood shelves and other flammable materials, one of the main concerns can be safety and protection especially against the risk of fire. Any type of lighting source should be a fully enclosed bulb and have a specific clearance distance to the walls and objects below. The advised distance normally would be half a foot to one foot distance between the bulb and potentially flammable materials. One always should be aware of the materials near lighting sources, at the top of shelves or cabinets and if they could become a hazard when placed too near the bulb. So it is a good idea to protect your home by going and checking up all lighting sources used inside walking closets and see if they do not pose a threat to your household security.
The best way to go nowadays is to use LED recessed lights, indeed you can use LED luminaires for walking closets because they are a type of completely enclosed fixtures, solid-state lighting. LED lights are by far the most secure type of lighting sources since they need much less power to produce much more light without emitting not as nearly as much heat as the most secure of the old traditional types of light bulbs or fluorescent tubes. With this new technology you get many advantages and increased safety, LED luminaires do not need as many replacements as other traditional bulbs or fluorescent tubes, with LED fixtures maintenance costs are importantly reduced.
