The LED Distribution team has some tips to help you enjoy your bathroom. After a hectic day, everyone could use a warm and welcoming place to experience a little pampering. What better place to find respite than your bathroom? The right lighting can help bring a sense of rest and relaxation on even the worst of days.
Lighting that Fits Your Style
Choose lighting that fits your personal style and the style of your home. You want to feel comfortable when using your bathroom as a place to unwind and relax. There are endless choices available to meet every need.
Current trends are for a spa look for your bathroom. For a spa look choose sleek, clean lines with bath bars and sconce lighting. Add some calming scents and your day will quickly improve!
Layer the Lighting in Your Bathroom
Your bathroom needs layers of lighting to function at its best. The main lighting fixture will blend all other lights that are in the room. Your main lighting fixture will help you to move about safely, clean and move about.
Vanity lights ensure you have adequate lighting for personal care. Lighting that has a shade over each lamp will offer the best lighting. To make your bathroom more comfortable, add a dimmer to the vanity lighting. You will be surprised by how frequently you use it, and how much more livable your room will feel.
In a bathtub and shower combination unit consider recessed covered lighting that is made for humid and wet environments. The lighting should be bright enough so you can see read bottles, shave and clean. If you have a separate bathtub to unwind and relax in, sconce lighting can bring a sense of calmness.
Scale your Fixtures to the Size of Your Room
Don’t be afraid to choose lighting fixtures that fit the size of your room. Your main lighting doesn’t have to be a light behind a plastic cover. Choose a fixture that makes a statement and shows off your style.
Use Similar Finishes
Not everything needs to match. Mix and matching lighting choices can bring a good sense of your style. It is helpful to keep your choices in similar finishes. Chrome, nickel, and brass are the easiest choices to blend with your room.
Consider Side Mounted Sconces
Sconce lighting added to the sides of your mirror or even through the mirror will give you shadow free grooming light. Hanging the lights so they are slightly above eye level will enable to see yourself at your best. The closer the lights are to your face the better.
Use Pendant Lighting instead of Sconce Lighting
Pendant lighting is a great way to show off your style and add elegance to your bathroom. Pendant lighting can bring either ambiance or accent lighting to your room.
Choose LED Bulbs
LED bulbs can be used in any bathroom light fixture. LED lights emit less heat than standard light bulbs, save energy and last longer making them ideal for bathrooms. To enjoy your lighting to the fullest, install LED dimmers. Check the lumens of the bulb to get a feel for how much light will be emitted.
LED’s come in a variety of different light temperatures. Choose the color temperature that you like best, and that is flattering to you. For natural looking light, choose LED’s in a 2700K range.
