Bathroom / June 14, 2018 / .
With the bathroom being a central hub to ready yourself for the day ahead, and a place to unwind in the tub at the end of it, it is important to ensure you have adequate lighting for both practical purposes and ambience. Ideally, your first point of call for lighting should be natural light. Think large, operable windows or even a skylight to help increase the light and airy feel of your room. For the general lighting, simple downlights or flush mounts are flattering for any bathroom, however to avoid unsightly and inconvenient shadows being cast, avoid placing downlights directly above the vanity or mirror. Instead, opt for task lighting around the mirrors and vanity to ensure consistent, flattering light right where you need it.
A lot of times, the accessories are the ones that give a space its character. For example, a small but chic bathroom rug with a soft and pleasant texture, a mirrored wall, long and heavy curtains or decorative stones used as décor elements are all exquisite examples. Another feature of luxury bathrooms can be a skylight. Basically anything that adds natural light and makes the bathroom look and feel more airy and bright can allow it to look luxurious, interesting and sophisticated.
A bathroom that is as spacious as this one is inevitably luxurious, regardless of its design. But there is more to this than just square footage. A bathroom can create the illusion of space by being minimalist and employing strategic features. Because bathrooms are usually small and do not have large windows either because of the lack of space or for privacy reasons, the views from here are almost in existent. So when a bathroom has such huge windows and wonderful views, it stands out as being luxurious.
You could also incorporate a big vanity drawer or cabinet beneath it to store all the things you need to get your glam on in the morning. It is very important how you position your lighting in the bathroom and for several reasons as well. First of all, you need to have in mind which parts of the bathroom have to have perfect lighting.
