Bathroom / June 13, 2018 / Oriane
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.
To begin, it is the room that everybody has and that everybody visits every day. Consistently, you visit your bathroom several times in a day. It is the only place in the home that you get some privacy. Parents of the world know this, taking just a few minutes away in their bathroom can make the difference between sanity and lunacy with small kids around. If you have more than one person in the home, it is guaranteed that the only place you can get privacy is in the bathroom. And thirdly, it is the place that always gets the most praise for looking good. No real estate agent ever markets a home saying it is got a modern and immaculate garage. Bathrooms are what matters to homeowners.
