Your bathroom is not just the place in which you shower and conduct your business. In many homes your bathroom is the room in which you spend your time getting ready to face the day. Brushing your teeth, putting on make-up, styling your hair, and giving yourself a final check in the mirror are common occurrences in most bathrooms today. As a result, your bathroom lighting must be bright enough to accommodate your needs.
Aside from standard general, or ambient lighting, there are several additional options to illuminate your bathroom to fit your needs:
Recessed lighting is a common general lighting option for most bathrooms. This type of lighting often blends with your decor and offers an even blanket of high quality light to illuminate your bathroom and fit your daily activities.
Surface Mounted Bathroom Ceiling Lights
If you have a flush, mount ceiling light, it may simply need a bit of an update to help illuminate your space. However, in some cases, removing the one large light fixture, and replacing it with three or more smaller fixtures would actually provide more efficient lighting for your bathroom area
Bathroom Track Lighting
When recessed lighting cannot be installed, track lighting is a wonderful alternative. Track lighting offers the most options by offering numerous colors and unique lighting fixtures that can easily fit onto the tracks and provide an added flair to the area.
If you have a particularly large bathroom or spa area in your home, a chandelier can add a touch of elegance that increases the overall ambiance of the room. This type of fixture can be used in conjunction with track or recessed lighting to add a special design to your lighting concept.
The type of lighting you choose is a deeply personal decision. However, the amount of light is a calculated number that cannot be ignored.
