5 Tips for Choosing the Bathroom Lighting

The source of light in the bathroom should not be neglected. If you have the possibility it would be ideal to alternate the source of natural light with artificial lighting. Good lighting also means that it could be: general, local or indirect.

1.You have two options for bathroom lighting fixtures: either those already incorporated in the bathroom furniture, or the ones you buy separately.

If you want a warm lighting color similar to daylight choose a bulb filament, which also has a lower cost.


For a more special atmosphere you can choose the spot light. It consumes less power, but is more expensive. And if you opt for cold neon light, note the higher price.














2. Bathroom mirror should reflect the natural light as much as possible, but also the artificial light. Placed in front of a window, the mirror will reflect light giving the impression of wider space. It is necessarily desirable to have a mirror installed over the wash basin.

3. The bathroom light should be clear, with controlled intensity, not shiny. Not least, it must be in compliance with the furniture, mirrors and wash basin. Choosing the mirror shape and size and will be done depending on the other furniture items of in the bathroom.


4. If there is no window in the bathroom then it is appropriate to put some spots around the mirror to ensure that it is perfectly illuminated, so that shaving, make-up and other similar activities be performed in optimal conditions.













5. A classic-style bathroom requires mirrors with frames and lighting fixtures with shade. For a modern decoration choose mirrors without frames, spotlights placed strategically so that the light is not too bright.
