Residential Team Talks: Bathroom Lighting

A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Bathroom Light Fixtures

Your bathroom is more than just a functional space; it’s a sanctuary where you begin and end your day. Crafting the perfect ambiance in this room starts with impeccable lighting. Whether you’re getting ready for a busy day ahead or winding down after hours of hustle, the right lighting can make all the difference. 


In this guide, we’ll explore how to transform your bathroom into a haven of both functionality and beauty through strategic lighting choices.  

Planning Tips & Tricks – Before diving into lighting fixtures, consider the natural light available in your bathroom. Natural light can dictate the type and intensity of artificial lighting needed. Layering different types of lighting—task, ambient, and accent—will create a multi-dimensional and inviting space. Aim for around 50 lumens per square foot to mimic natural daylight, ensuring ample brightness without overwhelming glare. 

Task Lighting – Vanity lighting is crucial for grooming tasks. Opt for sconces placed at eye level on either side of the mirror to minimize shadows and provide even illumination. This setup not only enhances visibility but also adds a touch of sophistication to your vanity area.

Ambient Lighting – Ambient lighting serves as the foundational layer, illuminating the entire bathroom. Ceiling lights or strategically placed fixtures should evenly distribute light to all corners of the room, ensuring a well-lit and safe environment for movement.

Accent Lighting – Add character and ambiance with accent lighting. Highlight architectural features or decorative elements using sconces or downlights. Accent lighting allows you to showcase specific areas or objects, adding depth and personality to your bathroom.

Illuminate your space with elegance and let your bathroom shine.
