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.
But the second aspect to consider when choosing your bathroom lights is safety. Clearly a bathroom is a wet area, and electricity and water are not the best of companions. Today however there's a very easy system in use which helps you to quickly and easily identify the type of light that's suitable for each area of your bathroom.
The different varieties of lighting fixtures include ceiling fixtures, side wall mounting fixtures, etc can be chosen as per one's taste and requirement for his or her bathroom. Also depending on the size of the bathroom, one can choose from a single light fixture to a couple or more lighting fixtures.
Plan bathroom lighting ; Your bathroom should have a window somewhere, and this can be your natural source of lighting. Use that as your starting place to start designing the lighting in the bathroom. During daytime, choose lighting that will compliment natural light coming from the window. You might want to diffuse some of that hard natural lighting glare by using screens or frosted glasses. This will allow soft light to enter into the bathroom.
