Ambient lighting: This sort of lighting covers the general bathroom space. You could have a centrally fitted light - a chandelier, for example, if you want to opt for a special and creative effect - or several bright lights fitted all along the walls. If you are planning on installing recessed lights, be sure you install several recessed light fixtures or use recessed lights in combination with other styles of lights. Just a few recessed lights will not do the trick. Be sure you use glass lens over the recessed lights; plastic turns yellow with time.
Another aspect to consider as far as the look of the bathroom lighting is concerned is the type of shade you use. Frosted glass offers a diffused light, which is both soft and very much easier to work with if you happen to be taking advantage of a little privacy and a mirror to carry out your ablutions and pampering.
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.
Uniform light can be expressed through various bodies, selected according to the size of the bathroom. For a small bath uniform light can be obtained with the help of two bodies of lighting arranged on either side of the mirror, and for a large bath the light may be obtained by using a lightning body affixed to the ceiling, above huge mirrors.
