The most important thing to do is to have plan when you are working with the bathroom lighting. You have to consider lots of things including your taste on how you want your bathroom to look like and what emotions you want to achieve for the room as the lighting also creates emotions to the room. That way, you can choose the appropriate bathroom light fixtures for your bathroom. It may seem giving the room proper light is not an easy thing to do but understanding the essential steps and considerations will help you achieve the best lighting for your bathroom.
In giving your bathroom lighting a contemporary design it is very important that you include three categories of lighting, which are ambient, task and accent lighting. Recessed lights, pendant lamps or even rope lights that are hidden can be used to reflect the ambient light instead of using the everyday central lighting fixture in the middle of the bathroom. This will help to give your bathroom some amount of warmth while bringing that sophisticated and modern look to the bathroom.
The first thing to look at is the kind of natural light that is available in the bathroom. To what extent do we need to augment the natural light? Should we put a window, a skylight or can we get away with some nice vanity lighting? What kind of surfaces and colors do we have in our bathroom? Are there a lot of light colors and reflective surfaces? If so then we may not need as much artificial light as we think. The best and most effective lighting for your bathroom is natural daylight. You can create a large window, a bay, or a bank of smaller window units next to the bathtub to add luxurious natural light to the bathroom. Nevertheless, no matter how much natural light you have in the bathroom you will need to use some electric lighting for night time and to fill out the bathroom corners. All corners of the bathroom need to be well lit. Dark corners makes a bathroom look smaller. So we must take into account the overall lighting situation in the bathroom in order to create balanced, strategic artificial light for all our important bathroom tasks.
