There are tons of choices and options in contemporary bathroom lighting for the homeowners. Choosing the right style will help you enhance the beauty of the space.
Before we talk about the styles of the lights which are available on the market we should talk why it is necessary to install the fixtures in the area. You need lighting in the bathroom for three different reasons and these are as follows:
The first reason is you need it for enhancing the aesthetic of the place. Any place which is dark and gloomy can impact negatively on your physical and mental health. Since bathroom is a place where you will step in to take bath for relaxing your mind and body it has to be well equipped with good source of lighting so you can feel comfortable inside.
The second reason is you need lighting for is to make your surroundings visible. Without enough light you won’t even be able to locate where your night time prescription medications is. To make everything visible at least there should be some wall lighting around the medicine cabinets area where you place your medications so you can find the medications easily.
The third and most logical reason why you need light in the bathroom is that you cannot work without it and there is a chance you can slip and meet with an accident. Bathroom is a place where floor gets wet and messy when you take bath. Whether the shower area is closed with a glass door or not, chances are water splashes will fall here and there on the walls as well as on the floor, if you don’t take a shower in a bright room you will be confused with your stride and you can even step on the wet area accidently which may result in serious injuries.
Three different types of contemporary bathroom lighting you can choose are as follows:
Wall sconces around mirror:
They are usually installed on the both side of the mirror or right over the mirror. They provide good lighting source to the person who work near the sink area. The light may not be very sharp but it is bright enough to help you look through your medications, also you can cut your hair and shave your beard easily in this light.
Pendant lighting usually falls down from the ceiling through a chain for the same reason it is also known as suspended lighting. It is attached with the ceiling area but it provides direct light to the area below. If you get the lighting installed over the sink area you would be able to see everything clearly without difficulty.
Recessed lighting on ceiling:
This is installed in small panels within the ceiling area. Depending on the ceiling area you may need to have more than four sets of recessed lights installed to brighten up the room.
