Choosing the lighting fixtures for your bathroom is not that simple. Depending on the size, style and personal preferences, there are multiple options to take into consideration. Find the one that bests suits you and your bathroom.
A bathroom that has more than one mirror can feature one lighting fixture for each one. For example, this bathroom has a large washbasin with three faucets, three mirrors and three sconces. This way there’s an equal amount of light for each one.
There’s also the possibility to have a chandelier or a pendant lamp in the bathroom. However, be careful where you place it. Avoid hanging it above the tub and make sure it doesn’t overwhelm the décor with its size and glamorous stature.
Recessed lighting is really great for modern and contemporary bathrooms because it helps maintain simplicity. They can be strategically placed so that the mirror and other elements are lit up evenly.
Don’t install your bathroom lighting above the mirror because it projects ugly shadows on your face. Instead, put the sconces on either side of the mirror. It’s a lot more flattering this way.
Make the most of the natural light in your bathroom. Ideally, you would have large windows or even a glass wall. Maximize the natural light and spaciousness with large mirrors.
