Proper lighting in the bathrooms is most essential as in the case of other rooms in the home. The right type of bathroom lighting fixtures ensures that one can easily locate all the toiletries placed in the bathroom as well as have proper lighting for relaxing and reading books and magazines and also will aid a long way in shaving properly without any cuts or scars on the face.
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.
Try accent lighting for illuminating your bathroom as it accentuates the lighting in your bathroom. This lighting option is not a necessity, but can be used for creating a decorative and dramatic look for your bathroom.
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.
