When you get up in the morning do you contemplate not looking in the mirror? It is probably because you have poorly designed lighting. Lighting naturally creates demon shadows and if you don't have your lighting properly designed, you may find that your newly redesigned bathroom is not the place you thought it would be.

Shower Room Lighting

Showers and shower rooms are ideally suited to a form of recessed lighting. It is most important that you use a recessed fixture that is specially made for the shower and designed for conditions of humidity and possible contact with water. It is also imperative that the correct bulbs for this area are used as well.

Bathtub Lighting

With the trend now reverting to free standing bathtubs it is always good to have focused ceiling lighting above. These can also be controlled by a dimmer switch should you wish to create a more peaceful or romantic mood.

Mirror and Vanity Unit Lighting

This is one of the most crucial areas for lighting. You are normally performing a task here that require the ability to be seen clearly with bright lighting that casts little in the way of shadows.

Lighting at the side or on top of your mirror with strip lights is one way to provide light. Once again make sure these are correctly rated for bathroom use and are not too bright as to blind you.

Ceiling Fixtures

If you are fortunate enough to have a height ceiling in your bathroom then you be more elaborate with your lighting scheme, even to the extent of having a chandelier if it fits in with the theme.

Bathroom Night Lighting

It is sometimes a nice feature to have the ability to leave a light on permanently at night especially if there are younger ones in the household. Specialist low wattage bathroom night lights are available but please do not be tempted to use those you see for use in the bedroom.

If all this choice puts your head in a spin then there is always the option to use a specialist lighting designer. They do not break the bank and show you schemes they have already completed or offer advice on many more options that may be available.
