When it comes to lighting design, spaces not typically seen by guests sometimes do not get the attention they deserve. Household jobs are easier to tackle in an organized, well-lit space.

The laundry room, for example, requires adequate task lighting to be most functional. It is important to make sure the lighting in this room does not create distracting glare and shadows. Under-cabinet lighting may help illuminate darkened areas. An overhead light source is also a must.
