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.
Bath lighting must meet three conditions: to be functional, aesthetic and to have a special ambiance. For the daily tasks (shaving, make up, etc.) you needed a strong light and for moments of relaxation, such as a bath in the tub, you need a discreet light. Also the bulbs that you use must provide the amount of light needed to properly light this room.
There are smaller sizes of bathroom lighting fixtures that are easily available these days, which not only requires less space but also opens up a wide array of possibilities of bathroom lighting. It is always better to use a mix of ceiling mount as well as wall sconces type of fixtures to light up a larger bathroom. Most bathrooms there days are more spacious as well as luxurious. To light up these types of bathrooms is a task that one has to carefully undertake to produce the desired results.
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.
