Being the main element of the interior, lighting is also used for decorative purpose such as highlighting the appearance of the art work in the bathroom wall or the beautiful tile work. This scheme of the lighting can give a dramatic effect to the ambiance of the room.
The shower or bath area is another critical place that needs to have the appropriate amount of light. Usually bathrooms come equipped with two main light switches, one for above the shower which may also power the vent fan and the other for the commode and vanity area. The bathroom lighting fixture above the shower area should be made brighter with a higher powered bulb in case the shower curtain is of a dark color. The person showering should also be able to see the floor clearly. In many instances people can slip and fall in the shower because they cannot make out the position of the friction strips or they failed to see the soap bar that fell. Shaving nicks can also occur in the shower if the lighting is poor. Shower lighting can be just as critical as your vanity lighting.
Bath lighting must meet three conditions: to be functional, aesthetic and to have a special ambiance. For the daily tasks (shaving, make up, etc.) you needed a strong light and for moments of relaxation, such as a bath in the tub, you need a discreet light. Also the bulbs that you use must provide the amount of light needed to properly light this room. It is indicated that you should use lighting fixtures directed down with special ornaments or decorative pieces which help in reshaping the bathroom and obtaining a special effect. Sources of lighting must be fixed and directed so to have an efficient light and to focus on dark areas or objects that you want to put in a special light. Also the light can be reflected by using mirrors if they are placed in strategic places and you can get better results when decorating the bathroom. It may also be supplemented by a lamp or lamps perched on the bathroom cabinet if the electrical system allows this. All these will help you to have a stronger light when needed, but also a dimmer light to create a romantic atmosphere.
