Bathroom lighting serves two purposes: it assists in daily grooming and beautification, and it increases the safety of an area. Poorly lit bathrooms can pose quite a safety risk. However, slippery surfaces, moisture and water, and electrical sources and appliances don’t have to pose a risk – proper lighting increases visibility and reduces safety concerns, all while making daily routines easier and more pleasant.
Types of Bathroom Lighting
There are three primary types of bathroom lighting which can be used alone or in combination for perfect brightening:
· Ceiling – these lights are typically placed in the center of a room, but larger bathrooms may require ceiling lighting placed throughout
· Wall-mounted – often placed on the side of mirrors to increase vanity lighting, sconces can be placed on nearly any wall in your bathroom to improve both aesthetics and visibility
· Bath and vanity – lighting included with medicine cabinets, sinks, and bathroom vanities are among the most popular form of bathroom illumination. This type of lighting enhances ease of grooming and brightens the sink area where electrical appliances and water are often in close proximity – ultimately helping increase safety
