In giving your bathroom lighting a contemporary design it is very important that you include three categories of lighting, which are ambient, task and accent lighting. Recessed lights, pendant lamps or even rope lights that are hidden can be used to reflect the ambient light instead of using the everyday central lighting fixture in the middle of the bathroom. This will help to give your bathroom some amount of warmth while bringing that sophisticated and modern look to the bathroom.
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.
They allow light to be evenly reflected across your face removing any shadows that may deceive you or make it hard for you to groom yourself properly in a timely fashion. Recessed lights are best for the shower stalls and areas over bathtubs and toilets.
Natural light: In the event the style of your bathroom lets in a great deal of natural light, you should have only take into consideration illumination arrangements for after-dark hours. In other instances, you could have to use a mixture of natural and man-made light sources, or, even wholly man made sources to light up your bathroom. You can get a number of in halogen and standard incandescent lights available in the market. Choose the ones that are superb and bright and as close as possible to natural sunlight.
