Excellent lighting in the bathroom is very important: not only do we need to see ourselves and attend to bodily needs, we need to make sure that the room is well-lit for safety purposes. Here are several tips to placing lighting in your bathroom. It is important to get the task lighting right in your bathroom first of all. Task lighting simply means lighting that makes sure that everything is sufficiently illuminated so that you can carry out all the tasks that you need to in this space, whether it is getting changed, brushing your teeth or hopping under the shower. Simple answer to task lighting is to provide a row of spotlight, down the centre of the room, giving sufficient light to all corners of the space. One of these places is in the shower, as people will often find that when their shower curtain is drawn, not enough light makes its way through to light up the shower area sufficiently. Bright ceiling spotlights can be ideal here, as they are directly placed in the ceiling for safety’s sake and will provide enough light for showering purposes.
The other area where task lighting is particularly important is any space that you use for grooming, such as in front of your bathroom mirror. Here, overhead lights cannot light up the face sufficiently, meaning that applying makeup, styling the hair and shaving can become a lot more difficult. A solution here is to place wall lights on the sides of the mirror in order to light up your face well.
