As bathrooms are becoming an important place for relaxing and refreshing, building an effective lighting scheme is something to take into consideration.
Having a bulb in the middle of the ceiling. might be enough in a tiny space, but it won't be able to satisfy your needs.
Layer lighting is the best solution if you want to control the ambience of your bathroom depending on your actual mood and activities.
There are 3 major layers of light.
As the name says, its main function is to illuminate the areas where the main activities happen, such as grooming, showering or putting up makeup- areas. around the sink, mirror and shower or tub.
Task lighting is proficient if will not generate any shadows, reflections that might disturb you.
For this you should use strip halogen lights or sconce lights on both sides of the mirror that will provide a balance and even lighting, reducing shadows. If not than one or more powerful downlights(depending on the fixture's size) above the mirror might do the trick.
You can also find mirrors and vanities that already have integrated lighting units.
Another place to keep in mind is the shower and tub. If you have a smaller bathroom, than your lights might be enough, but if you like to read in the bathtub a recessed ceiling light will be ok.
Ambiemt lighting provides basic illumination in a bathroom. It is the primarily general light source, usually provided by a pendant ceiling light.
But you don't have to limit yourself you can use stylish chandelier, wall or floor lamps as well.
Highlighting the ceiling will visually expand and make the room higher
Accent or Feature Lighting
Its prime function is to highlight textures and decorative elements.
If you want to draw attention to your beautiful sink, wall art or other design features of your bathroom directed recessed lighting is a great solution.
If you have glass shelves consider under-lighting, while for acrylic panels or glass blocks back lighting will help add glow and dimension to the surface.
