According to Mike Hoffer, founder and President of Carolina Closets Plus, LED lighting has become extremely popular to add accent lighting and task lighting to just about any project. Hoffer says, “the pricing for LED lighting has come down a lot over the past several years, making it a much more affordable upgrade to just about any storage area. We now install lighting on closet rods, shelves and offices”. Carolina Closets Plus has been in business for over 30 years and has been at the cutting edge of the technology for most of them. “There are lots of different types of switches to turn on and off lighting, including motion sensing switches, touch dimmer switches, push button switches and door switches”. Hoffer adds, with all the new types of lighting available and new switching capabilities, it opens up limitless possibilities.” LED lighting now comes in many different forms from strip lights that can be linked together to strip lighting in a roll that can be cut in one inch increments for an exact fit. Hoffer says “ the coolest use of LED lighting that we have done are display shelving for pottery pieces. We use a custom face frame on the cabinets with strip lighting that shines back toward the shelves. This is so much better than the old style puck lighting that only puts light out to the first shelf.”
