The bathroom is one of the only rooms in a house where we’re expected and encouraged to lock ourselves inside. Having the right lights to suit every room in the house is essential, and it’s just as important in the bathroom as it is anywhere else.
The four types of light needed for the best bathroom atmosphere are task, accent, decorative and sparkle. We spoke with two lighting experts about how to light your bathroom right and how best to transform a bathroom into a relaxing, functional refuge with light. Here’s their advice about decorative lighting.
Decorative Lighting adds visual sparkle. Whitehead advises using a single pendant in a square-shaped bathroom for just the right touch.
I like the hidden lighting at the intersections with the wall (floor & ceiling).
With that kind of permission, it makes sense to use this private space as a luxurious sanctuary. Make the most of your haven by giving it the proper lighting. If you enjoy art in your bathroom, accent lighting will show it off best. If you’re looking for the perfect lights for this part of your home, you’ve come to the right place. Recessed directional lights provide focused illumination for each piece of art — or, in this case, for an alcove dedicated to a sculptural bouquet of flowers.
