Lighting Tips & Tricks for your Bathroom
There’s nothing dreamy and or luxurious about a simple ceiling light in the bathroom. Designers now use dimmers, chandeliers and decorative wall sconces, low lights and high lights to bring a special look into the bathroom.
Lighting is crucial to how well your bathroom functions, not just how good it looks. The trick to bathroom lighting, and creating both ambience and functionality, is to use multiple layers. Include makeup lighting, place decorative ceiling lights over the tub area and light up any art displayed. In addition, add perimeter recessed lighting. For sparkle, use crystal or glass.
LED lighting is the perfect solution when looking to create a soft glow in the master bath, but they have to be positioned correctly. This type of lighting works best when you want to light underneath the vanity (one that is a separate piece of furniture, on legs), on the sides of niches or shelving, and as cove lighting on the ceiling.
Crystal chandeliers or beaded lighting can move out of the dining room and into the bathroom for a dreamy touch. Just hang a crystal pendant over the sink and mirror to sprinkle a soft glow throughout the space.
