Bathroom lighting is more than a necessity for every bathroom. A properly lit bathroom helps to make sure you and your bathroom look their best while also ensuring your safety while in the bathroom. A well lit bathroom has the added benefit of perfectly applied makeup, flawless hair and more.
While acting as the ultimate in utility and function, decorative bathroom lighting will also add a lot of style to the room.
Good lighting is soft, unshadowed and even. An ideally lit bathroom will have a fixture above the mirror with usually two bulbs, three bulbs or four or more bulbs depending on the amount of space available. This fixture will provide overhead and general lighting. Wall sconces can also be considered, one sconce on either side of the mirror will help avoid shadows and fill in the rest of your face and neck properly. Most bathrooms will require additional flush mount ceiling lighting or recessed lighting in the toilet area, shower area and/or center of the room to fill the entire room properly with light.
Bathroom lighting comes in many styles, colors, designs and layouts so even the most selective of homeowners will have many options to choose from. Whether you're searching for vintage, contemporary, traditional or strikingly modern lighting fixtures, we've got what you want! Try adding a bit of whimsy to the bathroom with a mini-chandelier, it will add romance and make you feel pampered every time you enter. Some larger master baths could even accommodate a mid-sized chandelier. Many states require ventilation in bathrooms without windows. Be sure to take a look at our selection of bathroom fans and flush mount ceiling lights with fans.
