Bath lighting must meet three conditions: to be functional, aesthetic and to have a special ambiance. For the daily tasks (shaving, make up, etc.) you needed a strong light and for moments of relaxation, such as a bath in the tub, you need a discreet light. Also the bulbs that you use must provide the amount of light needed to properly light this room.
All the bathrooms, be it small, medium or larger ones, requires general lighting, which provides illumination to the entire room without any shadows and provides proper lighting to the floor of the bathroom. This type of lighting is often derived from the recessed ceiling bathroom fixtures that not only provide the light but also creates lesser glares when compared to the wall hanging fixtures. Natural light that is let through the windows which are made of frosted glass or glass blocks will also provide ambient lighting to the bathroom as well as privacy.
Task lighting for the bathrooms actually illuminates the area for specific activities like reading, using the toilet paper dispenser, or wash basin. You can have wall sconces at the sides of the mirror in your bathroom. Wall sconces offer extra task lighting; this is something that flush-mounted ceiling fixture cannot offer. Wall sconces use low-wattage bulbs, so there is no danger of the bulbs getting hot and cracking or breaking with water vapor contact.
Now consider your bathroom space. You can try drawing the layout on a piece of paper. Indicate the natural light sources, such as your window and start putting ideas on the paper. Consider the various kinds of lamps available today, and where you can put them in the room. Have a main source installed. You can use this at night when natural daylight is absent. Next would be your secondary source, for your accent lighting. These are the bulbs that you can also use during the day to tie the lighting of the room together.
