Ambient bathroom lighting is a very popular choice For providing ambient illumination, the use of chandeliers and pendants are recommended. You need to keep in mind that bathrooms have the presence of a high degree of water vapor; this leads to the cracking of very hot bulbs which are exposed. Chandeliers and pendants have exposed bulbs, so think twice about their placement before having them installed.
The mirrors in the bathroom should reflect as much natural light as possible, also, artificial ones, if placed in front of windows, will reflect the light giving the impression of a wider space. The bathroom light must be clear, with controlled intensity and not bright. What ever lighting you choose, it must work with the furnishings, mirror and other decorative pieces placed in the bathroom. A classic style bathroom must have mirrors with elegant frames and shaded lighting bodies . For modern design choose mirrors without frames, spots placed strategically so that the light is not too bright.
It is wise to use flush-mounted ceiling fixtures, owing to the fact that these come with bulbs that are enclosed by a kind of cover. The cover is essential as it acts somewhat like a lamp shade and helps in diffusing the light as well as protecting hot bulbs from breaking and cracking from contact with water vapor. The best would be to have the right balance of ambient bathroom lighting and task bathroom lighting. This will give your bathroom proper illumination and make your bathroom experience worthwhile.
