If you want to look your best then you'll probably spend a fair bit of time in the bathroom, but unless you have decent bathroom lighting you may not be seeing yourself in the best light.
There are smaller sizes of bathroom lighting fixtures that are easily available these days, which not only requires less space but also opens up a wide array of possibilities of bathroom lighting. It is always better to use a mix of ceiling mount as well as wall sconces type of fixtures to light up a larger bathroom. Most bathrooms there days are more spacious as well as luxurious. To light up these types of bathrooms is a task that one has to carefully undertake to produce the desired results.
Task lighting: Task lighting should allow you to groom yourself efficiently, not create shadows and special effects, although no doubt it's fine if you can easlily incorporate those suitably in your lights arrangements. For task lighting around the mirror, place the light fittings on each side of it. The lighting should illuminate the person before the mirror rather than focus on the mirror. Generally speaking, the lights should illuminate your face fully and minimize shadows under your eyes and chin. It's also possible to wish to install lighting inside the bathroom cabinets so it is easier to consider things placed inside. Also install lighting fixtures over the bath area and toilet.
They allow light to be evenly reflected across your face removing any shadows that may deceive you or make it hard for you to groom yourself properly in a timely fashion. Recessed lights are best for the shower stalls and areas over bathtubs and toilets.
