Why Light Up the Bathroom?
Your kitchen and your living room have plenty of fixtures, not to mention a great deal of natural light, but your bathroom – not so much. Homeowners often spend plenty of time choosing decorative lighting for their living spaces but give much less consideration to the bathroom. After all, you spend a fair amount of time in the bathroom each day relaxing, recharging and performing personal hygiene tasks, so why not invest some of your time in a good lighting plan?
The Vanity Is Key
Ever try shaving your face in the dark? Doesn’t like such a great idea, right? That’s why it’s vital to include task lighting in the vanity region of your bathroom. Vertical fixtures or sconces are the perfect addition to either side of your mirror and they’ll help cast an even light across your face. If you have a very wide mirror, and sconces don’t make sense you can always opt for lighting above the mirror – it serves a similar purpose.
While ambient lighting isn’t necessary in your bathroom, it can really provide some worthwhile light. A central fixture mounted to the ceiling can add a soft glow to the perimeter of the room.
Don’t Forget About Dimmers
When you’re designing your lighting plan, don’t forget to include dimmers. They’re a great way to set the mood especially in a powder room. Want to tackle task, ambient and accent lighting all in one? Dimmers can do just that!
