All the bathrooms, be it small, medium or larger ones, requires general lighting, which provides illumination to the entire room without any shadows and provides proper lighting to the floor of the bathroom. This type of lighting is often derived from the recessed ceiling bathroom fixtures that not only provide the light but also creates lesser glares when compared to the wall hanging fixtures. Natural light that is let through the windows which are made of frosted glass or glass blocks will also provide ambient lighting to the bathroom as well as privacy.
The majority of houses built in the last 30 years will have just the standard central ceiling light which is fine it serves a purpose but there is a huge array of other bathroom light fittings available that will create your own little boudoir, i will try to cover some of the bathroom lighting available in this article.
The bathroom vanity is where lighting needs to be the most strategic. We want to minimize unwanted shadows and be able to have full frontal illumination while looking at ourselves in the mirror. We should be able to see clearly what we're trying to tweeze and crimp while up against the mirror. Lighting coming in from the side from a wall sconce coupled with modern bathroom vanity lighting totaling at least 150 to 250 watts is usually adequate. With lighting mounted directly above the mirror, there should be some additional reflected light from the mirror that will even out the light. It's always good to start the day off feeling positive about the way we look and balanced, reasonably strong bathroom lighting goes a long way in helping us achieve this.
