The task lighting in the bathroom is very important. This scheme is focused in the work space which is the vanity area where the bathroom mirror is placed. This part of the bathroom is used for face grooming like applying makeup or shaving. Thus, this area should have an even brightness of light and should not cast shadow on the face and neck. It will help determine the right amount of makeup to be applied.
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.
Wet floor is always what we got in the bathroom and sometimes this wet floor causes accident like sliding on the floor. But this accident or other mishaps inside the bathroom can be avoided if the room is properly illuminated. You can clearly see the floor where you are stepping as well as you can safely wander around inside the bathroom if there is a proper supply of light. The bathroom needs general lighting which provides overall illumination to the room. This can be acquired using a form of lighting like chandelier or pendant light. Otherwise, you can use several recessed lights for this illumination scheme.
