Downlights in the bathroom offer a different dimension on a bathroom lighting scheme, these lights look great giving your bathroom lighting a real contemporary warm feel. Bathroom downlights do have certain disadvantages in that they will require a fair amount of work cutting holes in the ceiling and getting the wiring to each individual light but believe me the end result is well worth the effort.
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.
Bathroom lighting can be added to the wall or ceiling, however, wherever the lighting comes from, it must be watertight so the steam from the bathroom would not affect it. If you want to bring a note of originality to your bathroom and to win some space, you can opt for ceilings with incorporated lights, like spotlights. Before thinking about the appearance and aesthetics of the lighting in your bathroom, you must first take into account how to protect users against electric shocks.
