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 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.
Depending on the bulb use in the bathroom lighting scones, light provided creates a certain ambiance in the bathroom. The design of the scones in bathroom lights also adds decorative value other than lighting. The scones in bathroom lights around mirrors don't have to be light bulbs alone. They can be small but stylish lamps that emit soft lighting to provide the warm atmosphere needed. It is also important that the sconces are placed in a location not too low or high for sconce to give effective lighting.
