Bathroom

The bathroom is the main space where you groom and get ready—which is why proper lighting is so important. Starting your morning off on a bright note (and avoiding shower puddle slips) can set the stage for the rest of your day. Now, what mood are you trying to set?

Pick out cooler temperatures for your bathroom, as these will mimic natural light and give you a clear understanding of what you look like. We recommend an energy efficient LED with a temperature of 2700 Kelvin.

It’s critical to illuminate the entire bathroom through ambient lighting—this means recessed lights or flushed-mount fixtures. Task lighting helps you perform specific tasks and can come in the form of sconces on either side of your vanity. Use accent lighting to draw attention to any notable wall art or tiles.

Late-night trips to the bathroom call for a directive, guiding glow. Skip the hall night light; instead, opt for low-voltage lighting above a cabinet or toe-kick lighting in a larger master bath.

Turn your bathroom into a relaxing spa with unique fixture placement. A chandelier or pendant above the bathtub makes for an eye-catching focal point. Enlist the help of a licensed electrician to ensure you meet local code requirements.
