When buying bathroom lighting it is important to adhere to the current legal regulations. All lighting in the bathroom must comply and be suitable for use in zones 1,2 & 3 of the bathroom. This law has been brought in to protect the consumer from potential serious injury so please make sure that the lights you buy comply.
Today's trend in bathroom lights includes the different forms of bathroom light fixtures. These are the lights enclosed in elegant fittings that add characters to the bathroom. And a bathroom might require more than one light fixture in order to achieve the proper lighting scheme in that certain part of the room.
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.
