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.
There is no rule such that the bathroom lighting should be provided only in the ceiling or is better if it is provided at the sides or on top of the mirror. One has to fix the bathroom lightings according to one's taste and the mood that he or she wants to bring into the room. Even for a small bathroom, people, these days, go for two or more lighting fixtures. Thus, lighting is the most important factor to be considered in any modern bathrooms.
The bathroom represents a significant, strictly functional area of the house and therefore we must give it special attention when planning to decorate, both in terms of the bathroom suite and the lighting fixtures.
Another important aspect in choosing lighting fixtures represent problems that may arise through contact between a heated bulb and water vapour from the bath. Such inconvenience can be avoided if spot type lighting bodies are used.
