elegant-bathroom-lightingBathroom natural lighting creates shadows and if you do not have your lighting planned well, you may find that your newly remodeled bathroom is not a happy place you think of.

Being a lighting professional, they have a lot of questions about lighting in the bathroom. It really seems to be a difficult task for them. In the bathroom lighting design, there are many decisions to be made. Of the design and placement, to what equipment is used, for what light bulbs to use. I want to take you around the room to give a rule of thumb when planning lighting design their own bathroom.

Bathroom lights
Rain is a space that you will no doubt need some form of recessed lighting. It is very important to use a hidden fixture made for a shower and rated to work under conditions of humidity and the possibility of contact with water. Additionally you will want to use a light rated for use in the bathroom. Most products will be clearly marked as such.

Personally, we have a dimmer light shower. It is possible to get up slowly by anyone getting into the shower before noon. But it’s important to provide enough light to allow you to shave and see what you are doing.

Lighting bathtub
Depending on the height of your tub and separate from the bathroom if you, your lighting solutions here will be different. Let’s assume you have a separate shower here. If not, you’re not going to do anything different than what I described above. Typically, you would use concealed lighting above your bath area. It is not necessary to have a rated water fixtures and lighting in this place. One or maybe two hidden games aimed at the outside of the tub will give you what you need. Aiming for the outside of the tub will give light to see what you are doing will not reduce any glare.

Mirror and Vanity Lighting
This area is probably the most important to get right. Lighting is not true when you try to apply make-up or shaving can be a hole. Lighting industrial enterprises have come up with a number of functional and decorative choice for vanity / mirror lighting.

Topping and flanking your mirror with vanity strip is one way to provide light. Ensure that you buy a vanity lights have low wattage or frosted glass so you do not blind yourself. Looking many mistakes made that they are too powerful bulbs and then they open the cover a few of them to take down the light level. This is really defeating the purpose of a vanity for allegedly strip to distribute light evenly.

There are many components to the lighting design of the bathroom. The above should get you started in the process or at least give you the confidence that you are putting an electrical junction box in the right places. One last suggestion I would make is to put all your bathroom lights on dimmers. Many of us use our bathroom as a quiet getaway. To achieve this, the lighting is a major component. Have the ability to dim the lights will provide the perfect atmosphere.
