We spend many hours a week in the bathroom, perhaps not as many in front of stoplights, but certainly enough to warrant careful planning for the type of bathroom lighting that we will need. We perform many intricate tasks in the bathroom like applying makeup, shaving, styling hair and many other daily hygiene tasks. So we need to be practical and make we sure we have enough of the right kind of light to accomplish these tasks without having to spend too much time in front of the mirror or having to start over again because we mis-applied the mascara. We must take into consideration what we have to work with in our bathroom that would affect our bathroom lighting situation.
Another aspect to consider as far as the look of the bathroom lighting is concerned is the type of shade you use. Frosted glass offers a diffused light, which is both soft and very much easier to work with if you happen to be taking advantage of a little privacy and a mirror to carry out your ablutions and pampering. Spot lighting such as that offered from recessed ceiling lights, usually LED or halogen, can look incredibly stylish, and helps focus more light where you need it. But for lighting near bathroom mirrors a soft, diffused effect can work extremely well, giving you a more even light.
Bathrooms are characterised, in general, as more restricted areas - they are not always the big, airey rooms we may hope for and, often, do not have natural light. As such, lighting becomes more important than usual. Lighting must be more intense than in the rest of our house, as compared with the needs of the room. Uniform light can be expressed through various bodies, selected according to the size of the bathroom. For a small bath uniform light can be obtained with the help of two bodies of lighting arranged on either side of the mirror, and for a large bath the light may be obtained by using a lightning body affixed to the ceiling, above huge mirrors.
