By using light fixtures with dimmer control, you will alter the intensity of the light to get exactly the required relaxing feel. Dimmers are also energy-savers and your lights will last longer. Just keep in mind that you would need incandescent dimmers for incandescent and halogen lights and agreeable dimmers for any other kinds of lights.
Accent lighting: Accent lighting, as the name suggests, draws attention to a certain area or feature of the bathroom. You can use it to good effect to highlight things like an ornate mirror or an artwork or a decorative wash-basin or beautiful tiling.
The first thing to consider is the look of the light itself. This may be a wall light, bathroom mirror light or ceiling light, and each of these types offers a whole variety of choice. If you have a bathroom with chrome based fittings, such as chrome taps, chrome towel rails and chrome handles on bathroom cupboards then it's probably a good idea to consider opting for bathroom lights with a chrome finish. Nickel plated lighting offers a beautifully warm look, but it's generally best to complement chrome with chrome rather than mix nickel and chrome together.
Bathrooms are characterised, in general, as more restricted areas - they are not always the big, airey rooms we may hope for and, often, do not have natural light. As such, lighting becomes more important than usual. Lighting must be more intense than in the rest of our house, as compared with the needs of the room.
