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.
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.
The bathroom lighting contemporary task light, serve to provide light for the various grooming functions that are carried out in the bathroom. As a result this category of light focuses on the vanity area, shower stalls, or over bathtubs and toilets. Sconces or vertical fixtures on both sides of the vanity, or that center mirror that you use to shave, brush your teeth or put on makeup are excellent task lights. They allow light to be evenly reflected across your face removing any shadows that may deceive you or make it hard for you to groom yourself properly in a timely fashion. Recessed lights are best for the shower stalls and areas over bathtubs and toilets.
