Bathroom / June 20, 2018 / Oriane.
A stunning light fixture can make any space look amazing. However, because the lighting in the bathroom is usually just functional and does not focus on the decorative details, such an element has a stronger visual impact in this case. Never underestimate the power of color. The right color used in the right space can have an outstanding visual effect and greatly impact the overall design and ambiance. This shade is Wythe Blue and is really stunning.
It is of course hard to judge the aesthetic of a particular design, as tastes vary greatly from person to person, But nowadays, almost every design, at least in everyday homes, has become about incorporating functionality and design and making them work in total harmony. What is not the modern bathroom is more about the practical use than it is about intricate décor of the room. The use of different materials was never more apparent, and different textures and colors make the room seem more interesting while still keeping that simple design.
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.
The use of mirrors is an underused element in many bathrooms. It is often a small mirror hung over the sink that is mainly utilitarian, and that is all the thought that goes into it. But when people can use the mirror to their advantage, they can elevate the feeling of a room and make it feel larger than it actually is. It is the feeling of space and that illusion that doubles the size of the room in your mind.
