The first thing to consider is the look of the light itself. This may be a wall light, bathroom mirror light or ceiling light, and each of these types offers a whole variety of choice. If you have a bathroom with chrome based fittings, such as chrome taps, chrome towel rails and chrome handles on bathroom cupboards then it's probably a good idea to consider opting for bathroom lights with a chrome finish. Nickel plated lighting offers a beautifully warm look, but it's generally best to complement chrome with chrome rather than mix nickel and chrome 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.
Literally; Designer bathroom lights can look fabulous, and add a very great deal to the overall look and feel of the bathroom, but when it comes to choosing the right lights for your bathroom it's important to think about two things.
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.
