Present sufficient task lighting. A proven way to have a relaxing experience in the bathroom is by providing enough light for you to do the things you need to do there. After all, squinting to look for your lotion or finding your way around the sink when you want to open the faucet will only bring about disappointment. And when you find yourself tripping or cutting yourself on things each and every time you’re in the restroom, you’ll eventually fear going there. Don’t just get very good bathroom lighting to set the mood; provide adequate light for practical reasons at the same time.
Think about what and where you position light fixtures. Recessed lighting at the rear of a big mirror can provide a dramatic effect to your bathroom, while surrounding the mirror with incandescent bulbs could make you feel as if you’re in a Hollywood star’s dressing room. Minimize barriers and make your bathroom appear even bigger by using LED downlights for ambient lighting… Or go for an opulent setting by putting a crystal chandelier. The kind of bathroom lighting that you decide on, as well as where you put it, will dictate the kind of mood your bathroom will have.
