Your bathroom lighting is just as important as the lighting in the rest of your home. Your bathroom serves as a functional place to get ready in the morning, and a place to unwind and relax in the evening. It is important to put some time and planning into your bathroom lighting. Below are some pro tips and guidelines to remember when you are planning your bathroom lighting.
- Vanity lighting – The vanity is a key feature for getting ready in the morning. It serves as an important functional lighting feature. We recommend not using cans over your vanity. This will give terrible shadows on you while you are using the mirror. If room permits, we recommend using two sconces on either side of your mirror or a light bar directly over the mirror.
- Layers of lighting – Just like in other parts of your home, you will want to create layers of lighting in your bathroom. To assist in determining how you will want to place your layers of lighting, you will need to consider where and how you will be using the space. If taking baths are important to you, we suggest placing lighting over the tub that is dimmable and on its own light switch. If you are all about the shower, then look into ways to highlight the shower independent of your vanity and cans.
