It might not be something you put a lot of thought into-until you really need it. Bathroom lighting is essential to our daily routines, but you don’t have to settle for lighting that’s unattractive and uninspiring.
When we think of bathroom lighting, the first thing that comes to mind is a vanity fixture. and why not? Placing lights over the mirror to help you see is an idea that’s simple, straightforward, and logical. anywhere from two to six lights will usually do the trick, and often they’re reversible-meaning they can be mounted up or down.
Placing a single-light wall sconce right by the bathroom door can also provide an additional source of illumination.
And nothing compares to a beauty wrap to provide elegance, striking good looks, and brightness. With three or four lights above the mirror and single ones hanging on both sides, a beauty wrap is a practical and luxurious way to light for your bathroom.
If you need an additional light source for a larger bathroom, a ceiling light is a fantastic option. Flushmount lights, semi-flush mount lights, and even chandeliers help brighten those larger bathrooms that need a little extra light. and don’t forget about adding a bath fan with a light. You’ll need that exhaust fan to help eliminate moisture in your bathroom.
One very popular bathroom lighting design idea is carrying a single theme throughout your entire bathroom. A number of forward-thinking manufacturers have put together collections that coordinate lighting, faucets, and accessories, like towel bars, tissue holders, and robe hooks.
Some available combinations include:
- Kohler’s Devonshire collection includes traditional-themed lighting, plumbing and accessories.
- Progress Lighting teamed with Kohler twice: Progress Lighting’s Fairfield collection and Kohler’s Memoirs collection, and Progress Lighting’s Milia collection and Kohler’s Finial collection.
- Progress Lighting and Delta Faucet partnered for the Arts and Crafts-themed Lockwood collection, the contemporary Michael Graves collection, and the traditional-themed Victorian collection.
- Progress Lighting and Moen have coordinated their Monticello lighting and Rivanna faucet collections.
So, whether you’re getting ready for work in the morning, taking the kids out of the bath at night, or taking the time to say goodnight to a loved one, the right kind of bathroom lighting can make all of the difference.
Until next time, happy Home Improving
