As the bathroom increasingly becomes a space to refresh and revive, good lighting is essential to the overall design space. Adequate vanity lighting, such as sink and under-cabinet lighting, is needed for practical applications like makeup and hygiene, but can also be paired with hanging and canned lighting to serve the overall mood of the room.
- Task lighting works best to illuminate the head and face for grooming and is best used in places like the vanity and shower. Vertical fixtures and sconces placed on both sides of the mirror cast light evenly across the face. Recessed light also works well over a freestanding tub or toilet.
- Ambient lighting works nicely in bathroom spaces that do not have much natural light, and may need a substitute. Customers may consider a hanging pendant lamp or chandelier as a ceiling mount, or even cove lights, which are roped around the perimeter to create a soft glow.
- Accent lighting creates a “spotlight” effect for the room, typically installed over a piece of art or powder room pedestal sink. Recessed accent lights can also be angled within a shower to highlight mosaic tile or a glossy wall surround.
- Natural light can also be considered in bathrooms equipped with windows. Re-Bath offers a trim option to build out a window frame, and can wrap a window to match any installed wall system.
