It is indicated that you should use lighting fixtures directed down with special ornaments or decorative pieces which help in reshaping the bathroom and obtaining a special effect. Sources of lighting must be fixed and directed so to have an efficient light and to focus on dark areas or objects that you want to put in a special light.
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.
You can also choose to have natural bathroom lighting. This kind of lighting option is just perfect for small bathrooms. If you have a small bathroom to the right portion of the house, you can have a row of windows above for letting the natural light outside penetrate the bathroom.
The bathroom is a very important room that everyone has to visit. This is the room that gets you and your family ready to greet the world on a daily basis. As a result, it is very important that it is properly lighted to send you on your way looking your best. This room above all the others is more than likely to be visited by guests when they stop by from time to time.
