Bathroom / June 18, 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.
When it comes to taking things that extra mile and really creating a space that is elegant and sumptuous, nothing beats heated flooring. Just think how glorious it will feel on a damp, cold winter morning as you step out the shower onto a toasty warm floor. When installing heated flooring, be sure to have a digital thermostat also installed so that you can control the temperature right down to the degree. There is a good chance you will want to keep it a bit cooler during the summer months, which will save on your home energy costs.
