Accent lights are used to bring focus to various details in the bathroom, such as art piece, sculptures or architectural design in the bathroom tiles. These small recessed lights are able to attract attention to these details without taking up excess space on the counter. On the other hand they will help to make your bathroom look more interesting and sophisticated.
Also the light can be reflected by using mirrors if they are placed in strategic places and you can get better results when decorating the bathroom. It may also be supplemented by a lamp or lamps perched on the bathroom cabinet if the electrical system allows this. All these will help you to have a stronger light when needed, but also a dimmer light to create a romantic atmosphere.
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.
Ambient lighting is another part of light layering. These are usually your typical uplights. They direct light upwards to allow the light to bounce off the ceiling and into the rest of the room. It softens the light and creates a good glow. Next is accent lighting. This is the kind of lighting that will give an additional spark to the lighting of the room. You can choose to dim it or increase the glare depending on your needs.
