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.
There are certain parts in the bathroom that needs to have a focus illumination like the vanity area. This is where the bathroom mirror can be found and also the area that is mostly used when applying makeup, shaving or when styling the hair. And so, this area should have a focused lighting that provides even brightness. This is where task lighting falls. This lighting scheme should not cast shadow in the face and neck.
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.
