Lighting for laundry areas is often overlooked, but adequate lighting can provide high functionality and style. Approach the lighting design of this room as you would any other room in your home. Layer the types of lighting from ambient to direct lighting.

Under Cabinet Lighting

There are many choices for this type of lighting. An overhead light is the typical lighting choice for most lighting budgets. If you are looking for better task lighting, you may want to splurge on some under the cabinet lighting strips.

Overhead Long Ceiling Lights

You can go with any type of ceiling light that’s in keeping with your laundry design. One of the best utilitarian styles is a flush mount or a large panel style. This is a common light fitting often found in laundry rooms.

Industrial Style

If your style is industrial, there are lots of great lighting options for a laundry room to carry out your design theme. Some industrial styles are more expensive than popular common light fixtures.

Drop Ceiling Panel Lighting

Drop ceiling panel systems offer ideal opportunities for appropriate panel lighting that is a natural part of the ceiling panel style.

Depending on the size of your laundry room you may be able to use more than one light panel. Some light fittings come with dimmer capabilities for greater versatility in ambient lighting.

Doing a laundry area doesn’t have to be boring. Many laundry rooms are in windowless rooms.

LED Strip lighting

One of the all-time favourites for a modern lighting style is LED strip lighting. LED strip lighting provides indirect light and can be used under cupboards to provide illumination light for bench surfaces.

Recessed Lighting

Above lighting

Recessed lighting is a wonderful way to add direct lighting to your laundry area. You can place this type of lighting on a dimmer for greater control of the lighting flow. This style can be installed under the cabinets, the ceiling directly over workstations/tables, washers, and dryers and/or in the middle of the laundry room.

Making Lighting Choices for a Laundry Room

A laundry room should have several types of lighting to accomplish the design look and also provide the functionality you are looking for and at the same time add value to your home.
