Are you looking to transform your bathroom from boring to brilliant? With just a few changes in lighting, a bathroom with basic overhead lighting can be redesigned into a relaxing, spa-like haven. Bathroom lighting is usually meant to be functional for what is needed to see while showering, shaving or applying make up. Recently, however, homeowners have been inspired to change out those standard ceiling lights for chandeliers, decorative wall sconces, and recessed lighting. Let’s look at how you can make the most of your bathroom space with proper lighting.
- Task Lighting – The primary role of a bathroom is to perform daily hygiene. Make sure your lighting allows for illumination for things like brushing teeth, doing hair and other morning/evening tasks. Lighting the vanity area is therefore crucial but it doesn’t mean that it needs to be boring. Use decorative wall sconces to flank the mirrors to bring out your best features with no glare.
- Mood Lighting – Many homeowners find that after a long day of work and running the kids around to their events, the bathroom is a much needed escape. Creating mood lighting for a long soak in the tub can be just enough to help you recharge. Choose a modern chandelier to set a mood of opulence. Add some dimmer switches to make the scene even more relaxing.
- Safety Lighting – Showers are the number one spot for falls and slips so be sure to light for safety around the shower area. Be sure to choose fixtures that are rated for use in damp or wet locations.
- Add Drama – Add some drama by installing recessed lighting, undermount lighting on cabinets or unique night lighting for homes with children. There are hundreds of options of styles and sizes of lighting fixtures that can match your personality and make your bathroom a showcase!
