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.
Bathroom is also considered to be the most important room or living space in any home. Nowadays, bathroom is not just a place where people just have a quick wash and perform morning ablutions, but also a place where they groom themselves as well as wash away a day's tiredness and strain.
Task lighting: Task lighting should allow you to groom yourself efficiently, not create shadows and special effects, although no doubt it's fine if you can easlily incorporate those suitably in your lights arrangements. For task lighting around the mirror, place the light fittings on each side of it. The lighting should illuminate the person before the mirror rather than focus on the mirror. Generally speaking, the lights should illuminate your face fully and minimize shadows under your eyes and chin. It's also possible to wish to install lighting inside the bathroom cabinets so it is easier to consider things placed inside. Also install lighting fixtures over the bath area and toilet.
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.
