Getting yourself ready for the day takes an effort but the job is easier with proper lighting at the bathroom vanity.
NEW DELHI: The bathroom is the one of the only rooms in the multi-bodied household where we are expected and are encouraged to lock ourselves inside.
With this kind, it makes sense to make use of this private area as a luxurious sanctuary. Getting yourself ready for the day takes an effort but the job is easier with proper lighting at the bathroom vanity.
Having a successful bathroom lighting plan must include multiple light sources. It consists both overhead and task lights, especially good task lighting at the sink and mirror being key.
In order to achieve successful vanity lighting plan, the fixtures should have adequate light output of appropriate style and size suiting your bathroom layout and design.
Mounting the vanity light fixtures at optimal location minimizes the potential for the shadows being cast on the face and it is important whenever applying makeup or shaving and grooming.
Noting beats the natural daylight to brighten your mood, which regulates your sleep and wake cycles. Hence it is ideal to design the bathroom with as much natural light as possible. If you are planning to have one window in your bathroom then why not two if you can? Especially if they can be on the adjacent or the opposite walls for balancing the illumination.
Different combinations of light fixtures
Many house owners like the luxury feel that the pendant fixture can bring to a space.
For ideal setup please ensure that the fixture is at least 3 feet from the tub and 7 feet or more above the high water level.
Another ambient light source in baths is up lighting indirectly. It is particularly soft and radiates a pleasant background illumination.
Light in the shower
There is huge number of very bright and open shower trim lights available. It means you can put in cans those punch light down and dim to the desired level rather than struggling to see with standard 60-watt maximum cans.
Sensor smart lights
Often we tend to forget to put the bathroom lights off after use. It makes great sense to include sensors in your bath lights so that it is in use only when needed.
On the other hand, make provision for night light. Sometimes we use bathroom in the middle of the night and hence it is critical to provide some but not too much light by which to safely maneuver. During night our eyes get adjusted to darkness. Having a 5-watt light night is the best option.
Proper lighting makes all the difference in the bathroom, not only on how it looks but also in how it supports our daily routines.
