Most of us don’t really consider bathroom lightning as an essential part for having a nice and comfortable bathroom. Well actually it is very important. The bathroom is where we do our very personal and detail moment such as putting make up and shaving. We sometimes get annoyed when we make mistakes while doing those tasks without realizing real cause. Poor lightning is definitely one thing we need to avoid, therefore here are some tips to make sure your bathroom will be better illuminated:
Tip 1 – Layer the Light
You can feel how irritating is to have a bathroom with just one light source and a single source of light can be very unpleasant. There are several options to remodel your bathroom that includes several types of light:
Task lighting provides the right light while applying makeup and shaving. This type of lighting have different models, but the one I would recommend is the hanging on the wall flanking the sink type.
Ambient Lighting gives a bouncing effect of the light to the ceiling and can soften shadows.
Accent Lighting allows you to illuminate design features such as paintings, plants or the tiles.
Decorating Lighting to add some luxurious touch in your bathroom. To be installed in the ceiling of your bathroom.
Tips 2 – Create a scene
Try to locate the scene for the lighting. Focus the bright light in the area where you spend most of the time for applying make up or shaving. Create a softer lighting for relaxing area like in the bathtub or in the shower depends on your preference.
Tips 3 – Overcome Design Challenges
Try to add aditionnal source of natural light from outside. In most cases, bathroom is located on the interior walls where no place is available to create a window. This lack of natural light source can change the whole ambiance of the bathroom. It’s always recommended to create an addition window or skylights to create a better flow of air and add more natural light in the bathroom
