When it comes to bathroom lighting there are several different options, locations and fixtures to choose from. The lighting in the restroom can either set an elegant mood or a relaxing one. Here are few tips, tricks and options when it comes to bathroom lighting:
Only light the parts of the bathroom you want to see
Lighting gives you the opportunity to direct attention to the most important areas of your bathroom. Try adding accent lighting above showers, tubs, sinks, vanities or artwork on the walls.
Use dimmer switches as accent lighting
By adding a dimming switch to your lights, you have the ability to control how bright you would like it to be. You could easily turn your bright bathroom into a dim relaxing spa oasis.
Use wall sconces for alternate or additional lighting
These wall fixtures are perfect for framing mirrors or adding additional lighting in dark corners or bathroom nooks. These lights are also good for taking selfies and applying makeup.
Know the difference between your lights
Incandescent light bulbs give off a yellow-tinted or warm light and can be found in the majority of homes. Fluorescent light bulbs give off a white light and are primarily found in offices. Fluorescent light bulbs tend to be more energy efficient and last longer than incandescent bulbs.
