Today we discuss few interesting aspects of bathroom lightning. As you probably know, good lightning of room can make interior very pleasant and calm, add relaxing atmosphere or create something completely different – create perfect work place with lights helping to achieve maximum concentration and focus on awaiting tasks.
But what about bathroom? Is lightning so important in this room that is it worth to make any changes to it? The answer is: yes. Of course you should consider adapting proper lightning to your bathroom. We give you a piece of advice, what to do and what you can get.
First of all, you should be aware of fact, that in bathroom we use almost exclusively artificial lights. So, most important is to use light sources producing good, eye easy light. You should avoid fluorescent lights at all costs, also cheap energy-saving bulbs are rather poor choice. Try to focus on classic bulbs producing soft, diffused light in neutral white color. You can also choose energy-saving ones, but be careful and choose high quality products. Why it is so important? Well, it’s your bathroom.
After that, we can take next step and talk a little about placing light sources. Most popular concept is one strong lamp in central point of the ceiling, but it is not quite good idea. Think about few smaller lamps scattered around room. For example, one strong white halogen lamp over a mirror (with its own switch), one small lamp producing soft, discrete light over your bathtub or next to your shower cabin, one small lamp over entrance to your bathroom, one small lamp near floor (watch for water spills) and that’s all. You can also consider putting small light sources into your bathroom cabinets, especially when they are equipped with glass fronts. This gives outstanding effect and makes your bathroom really special.
Good choice of light sources surely will present all aspects of your bathroom design, don’t neglect power of lighting.
