Bathroom / June 12, 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.
Think about your morning routine. Does it involve another person getting ready at the same time as you are? Being shut out of the bathroom or showing each other in front of the sink and vanity is never fun and never time-efficient. If this is the case with you, think about a double sink, more space for things and people.
