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.
Another important aspect in choosing lighting fixtures represent problems that may arise through contact between a heated bulb and water vapour from the bath. Such inconvenience can be avoided if spot type lighting bodies are used.
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.
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.
