Can Pantry Lights Be Life Changing?

Does your pantry or closet look like this?

This is what my pantry USED to look like before my husband got his hands on it.


I know that it is odd to hear someone say that lights can be life-changing, but I am here to tell you that it can happen!

When we moved in to our new house, 6 years ago, I was so happy to finally have a pantry! I arranged and rearranged that pantry until it was just right. It may have taken a little while, but that was ok. It was my first pantry and I had to be sure that everything was exactly where I needed it to be.

As I was busy rearranging our new pantry, it never once occurred to me to ask for lights in there. I know that many pantries and closets have lights on the ceiling and being married to an electrician, we have lights in all our closets and dimmer switches everywhere (which drives me crazy but that is a topic for another post), but for some reason, I just never thought about lights in the pantry.


Then, one day, it happened. I opened my pantry door and it was lit up like the night sky on the 4th of July! My husband managed to install these amazing LED tape lights while I was out of the house and I could not believe what I was seeing! What was it that I was seeing??? EVERYTHING! You don’t realize how much light adds to the ease in finding things in your pantry until you have them installed. I told you, LIFE CHANGING. What could be even better than having new lights installed in your pantry as a surprise? They were on a motion sensor! I didn’t have to turn them on and off every time I went in there and the kids couldn’t leave them on all day or night!

I must tell you, when we have friends over to the house and they see the pantry lights, they all ask what it would take to have them installed in their pantries. Click here to learn more about lighting design and installation and what Shafnisky Electric Inc. can do for you.

This is what the lights look like inside of your pantry or closet. It is just this small strip of lights that goes right along the inside of the door. Open the door and PRESTO…your closet is lit!
