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.
So, it is imperative that proper planning must be done in selecting bathroom accessories and bathroom fixtures. Of all the types and varieties of bathroom accessories, bathroom lighting fixtures are considered to be most important fixture in a modern bathroom.
Task lighting for the bathrooms actually illuminates the area for specific activities like reading, using the toilet paper dispenser, or wash basin. You can have wall sconces at the sides of the mirror in your bathroom. Wall sconces offer extra task lighting; this is something that flush-mounted ceiling fixture cannot offer. Wall sconces use low-wattage bulbs, so there is no danger of the bulbs getting hot and cracking or breaking with water vapor contact.
Ambient lighting is another part of light layering. These are usually your typical uplights. They direct light upwards to allow the light to bounce off the ceiling and into the rest of the room. It softens the light and creates a good glow. Next is accent lighting. This is the kind of lighting that will give an additional spark to the lighting of the room. You can choose to dim it or increase the glare depending on your needs.
