Find the Best Bathroom Lighting

Bathroom Lighting Bathroom lighting is something many people don’t put enough thought into. Big mistake. The bathroom is where we spend hours getting ready and looking at ourselves in the mirror; optimal lighting is essential for great bathrooms. Designing a luxurious and functional bathroom all comes down to lighting. Here are a few things to consider.

Proper Light Placement: Don’t add a light above the mirror, add one around eye level. Above mirror lighting casts dark shadows across areas of the face most people don’t want those dark shadows, and ages you considerably. Not ideal for putting on makeup and getting ready to look your best.

Wattage: For task lighting (putting on makeup, inspecting yourself in the mirror) choose wattage carefully.¬†75 to 100 watts’ worth of illumination is ideal for these kinds of activities where you need a close look. Choose different wattage for softer ambient lighting.
