At Lighting One, we understand the steps that a homeowner goes through in order to choose the perfect lighting for each room in their house. They spend hours and hours looking at design catalogs and visiting local showrooms, just to get an idea of which fixtures they want to install. When it comes to your bathroom lighting, there may be some things you don’t like about it, and you’re ready to upgrade your fixtures. By visiting one of our affiliated lighting showrooms around the country, you can discover new bathroom lights that you’ll love for years to come!
No matter what it is that you like least about your bathroom lights, there are new styles and trends that can help you update the look and feel of the space. In this post, we’ll look at three areas where you can improve your lighting options.
The Vanity Lights
The vanity lights are often the centerpiece of the bathroom, and they’re almost always the fixtures that are on whenever you’re in the room. However, if they look outdated or you feel that they’re too bright, you might be ready to replace them.
Vanity fixtures should provide bright, functional light that helps you see as you stand in front of the mirror, but if they’re casting unflattering lines and shadows across your face, then you might want to consider installing sconces on either side of the bathroom mirror. This will cast light from each side of your face, instead of from above.
When it comes to vanity lighting styles, there are many options from which to choose. Depending on your design tastes, you can install Industrial, Art Deco, or Vintage fixtures that fit your personal preferences.
The Ambient Lighting
The ambient, or overhead, lighting in your bathroom should provide general illumination for the space. If you have an outdated flush-mount fixture that looks like it was installed in the 1970s, then there’s a good chance that it was.
Older lights often don’t provide the illumination that you need, not to mention that they can detract from the overall design of the bathroom. Replacing that old fixture with a modern mini chandelier or another contemporary light can greatly enhance the space and make it much more enjoyable to use.
The Recessed Lighting
Many homeowners utilize recessed lighting in the bathroom, but that might be where they stop. There’s no other ambient fixture in the room, and the recessed lights are the only source of general illumination. While this can help with the functionality of the room, it can detract from the overall aesthetics of the space.
If you have too many recessed fixtures, then it can take away from the clean lines of the ceiling or make the space too bright. Dimmers are always an option, but the best choice may be to remove some of the can lights and add more wall lighting. Layering your lighting is essential in every room, and with the right options from your local Lighting One showroom, you can create a space of which you can truly be proud.
