Nothing is more important in a bathroom than effective lighting. Not only make it the room aesthetically pleasing but also more functional. Applying makeup, shaving a beard or other similar tasks need the right lighting. There is no universal lighting for all bathrooms. It usually takes a combination of different types of lighting to provide a well-lighted room.
The ceiling light is located in the bathroom ceiling. It provides general and background lighting for the tasks at the mirror. Ceiling lights are rarely a main source of light in the bathroom.
Wall sconce lights
Wall sconce lights are usually placed in pairs above a bathroom sink. As they are located at a head level or a bit higher, wall sconce lights are more visible than other types of lighting. They are not pointed directly at the user’s face, creating attractive shades and a better sense of dimension in a bathroom.
Vanity lighting in a bathroom is two or more lights located around a mirror. This type of lighting is focused on illuminating a bathroom sink. Note that shades created by vanity lights can be disturbing.
It is very rare to find a chandelier in a bathroom. But some fancy interiors do incorporate this showy type of lighting. Having a chandelier in a bathroom can feel like staying in a 5-star hotel. Note that a ceiling should be high enough to well accommodate a chandelier.
Bathroom recessed lights
Recessed lights are installed within holes cut into the ceiling, meaning the mechanism is completely hidden. They act as general lighting. Recessed lights save space and as a result, are ideal for small bathrooms. If a bathroom is large enough, it should have recessed lights in the center.
