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.
If you want to look your best then you'll probably spend a fair bit of time in the bathroom, but unless you have decent bathroom lighting you may not be seeing yourself in the best light.
Also the light can be reflected by using mirrors if they are placed in strategic places and you can get better results when decorating the bathroom. It may also be supplemented by a lamp or lamps perched on the bathroom cabinet if the electrical system allows this. All these will help you to have a stronger light when needed, but also a dimmer light to create a romantic atmosphere.
Accent lights are used to bring focus to various details in the bathroom, such as art piece, sculptures or architectural design in the bathroom tiles. These small recessed lights are able to attract attention to these details without taking up excess space on the counter. On the other hand they will help to make your bathroom look more interesting and sophisticated.
