All the bathrooms, be it small, medium or larger ones, requires general lighting, which provides illumination to the entire room without any shadows and provides proper lighting to the floor of the bathroom. This type of lighting is often derived from the recessed ceiling bathroom fixtures that not only provide the light but also creates lesser glares when compared to the wall hanging fixtures. Natural light that is let through the windows which are made of frosted glass or glass blocks will also provide ambient lighting to the bathroom as well as privacy.
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.
Light Placement: Ahead of setting up the light fixtures, look at the sort of ambiance you intend to create with your bathroom. Mistakenly placed illumination can cause very unlucky and even terrifying effects that will very likely - if you're the very sensitive sort - have you scurrying out as soon as possible. It really is far better in case you give the illumination arrangements some thought and, with the aid of tactically positioned lighting fixtures, produce a enjoyable, peaceful and well-lit atmosphere that offers much incentive to linger in the bath.
Generally, whenever one talks about lighting a bathroom, a wall mounted fixture above the mirror props up immediately in one's mind. Even though, this is the most common type of lighting fixture known to people since last century, there are wide varieties and styles of lighting fixtures that are now available in the markets all over the world.
