Light The Way

Since the bathroom is usually the smallest room in the home and you don’t want to have a lot of windows in the room for obvious reasons, you need to consider the lighting options that are available. While a standard bulb and fixture on the ceiling is an idea and is very common in most homes, you can get a little creative as well. When you look at bathroom fixtures Apopka stores offer, think about the colors that you like as well as the other fixtures in the room so that everything can blend together into a cohesive look. You should also consider the breakers for the bathroom because you don’t want to install too many lights that could trip the breaker, especially if people will use a hair dryer, curling iron, and other items during the day.

Illuminate the areas where you need to see what you’re doing. A soft glow above the tub offers a charming and relaxing look. If you want something elegant in your bathroom, then consider a fixture that looks like a chandelier without all of the added details. This would be a good option for an older bathroom with a clawfoot tub.

When you begin installing lights near the vanity, you need to make sure the lights are evenly spaced. You don’t want more light on one side of the vanity than the other because it can make it difficult to apply makeup and do other things to get ready for the day. Mirrored sconces are an option if you want something that’s contemporary. These will provide even lighting while reflecting the light to other areas of the bathroom. If the shower area looks a little dark, then install fixtures that are safe in the water. Make sure all of the bulbs and electrical components are properly housed before installing the lights on a wall of the shower. Soft blue lights provide a fun and relaxing glow while bathing.
