You can also choose to have natural bathroom lighting. This kind of lighting option is just perfect for small bathrooms. If you have a small bathroom to the right portion of the house, you can have a row of windows above for letting the natural light outside penetrate the bathroom.
The different varieties of lighting fixtures include ceiling fixtures, side wall mounting fixtures, etc can be chosen as per one's taste and requirement for his or her bathroom. Also depending on the size of the bathroom, one can choose from a single light fixture to a couple or more lighting fixtures.
In giving your bathroom lighting a contemporary design it is very important that you include three categories of lighting, which are ambient, task and accent lighting. Recessed lights, pendant lamps or even rope lights that are hidden can be used to reflect the ambient light instead of using the everyday central lighting fixture in the middle of the bathroom. This will help to give your bathroom some amount of warmth while bringing that sophisticated and modern look to the bathroom.
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.
