Set The Mood – Match The Lighting To The Look

Bathroom lighting is often an area that gets overlooked when planning a bathroom design. What many people don’t realise is that installing mood lighting and taking more care with the choice of fittings and fixtures can transform a bathroom from a place to bathe and brush teeth into a spa-like environment that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation.

There are many bathroom lighting ideas that will actually enhance your bathroom or en suite. Here are a few…

Layer the light

Layering light is the key to creating a well-lit space. Layers help create dimension, illuminate function, set a mood, and improve versatility of any space. You’ll want to make sure to include at least two types of light: ambient, accent or functional.

Focal points

Lighting can be used as a tool to draw attention to any element in the room you want to be your focal point, such as a piece of artwork or a statement mirror. Frame and direct the eye toward whatever you choose to be the center of attention.

Consider every aspect

Depending on the size and style of a bathroom, certain light fixtures can make the space feel palatial, or claustrophobic. The right lighting can make a statement and set the tone for the bathroom’s design, which is why considering function is essential in lighting. Always start by defining how your space will be used, and choose light fixtures that serve that purpose and appeal to your tastes.
