Utility Lighting for Garages, Basements and Storage Areas

Shop Light

Shop Light

Utility lights, or work lights, can be used in laundry rooms, storage sheds or garages to add additional lighting. Primarily used to cast extra light where traditional lighting fixtures don’t fit the bill, utility lights range from small, clamp-on lights when you need direct light on a specific project to very large, tripod style halogen lights. Hanging shop lights are the perfect choice for over a workbench in your garage or storage shed and can also include an electrical outlet on either end to power other tools.

Utility lighting is often used on decks and patios when entertaining to add everything from ambiance lighting to full yard lighting for parties and events. Utility lights usually don’t need to be installed by a professional unless you need to have new electricity lines run to your location.

    • What a gorgeous pantry.
    • Nice looking laundry room—yet doesn't seem very practical or efficient with a sink in the middle❣
    • Mason Jars Island light-  I like the rustic wood feature that hides the cords.  Might be fun to utilize this idea with conventional, single pendants used in a row in lieu of Mason jars.
    • Laundry room- I still like the top loading washers, nice sink, but would be storing vases, not silver in the utility room.
