Love Your Bathroom Lighting
If you don’t love it, your bathroom lighting needs to change. As lighting experts, we believe that you need to determine the ambiance you want to achieve with your bathroom before you choose lighting. This can be as simple as saying you want to feel a certain way while in the space, or as complicated as layering lighting. Determine your desired lighting ambiance and move forward with choosing the best indoor lighting for your bathroom.
The Four Types of Lighting
You’ll want to use the four types of lighting to illuminate your bathroom. For most, they use one or two types of lighting. When you use all four, you get what’s called layered lighting. It adds depth and character to the space by adding a few lights.
Task lighting is used for specific tasks like preparing for your day (or a night out with your significant other) in front of the mirror. For most, two lights on either side of the mirror at eye level will get you the lighting you need. Try to avoid lighting above your mirror, as it will cast shadows “down” your face beneath your eyes, nose, and chin. Improper lighting can visually age you a decade. Get your lighting right and enjoy every second of self-care.
Do you enjoy art or unique decor in your bathroom? Accent lighting will offer you the ability to illuminate your decor or art, enhancing its appearance in the space. Directed light can be the difference between appreciating a piece of art or ignoring one.
Want to illuminate your bathroom and have the lights look great while doing it? Decorative lighting is the best option for you. A single pendant light can be just the touch needed to bring a room together. This is your private space. Design it so that you will love it.
When you need to light your room, it’s best to consider ambient lighting options. These lights do not need to be anything stylish, but you can enhance these lights as much as you need while adding “filler” light to the space.
