Types of Bathroom Light Fixtures To Consider

When it comes to lighting a bathroom, you want a combination of light fixtures to create a balanced lighting design. To do this, consider layering your lighting from top to bottom, preventing shadows or harsh lighting from overpowering the space. Recessed lighting or flush mounts are a great option for overhead lighting. Then, you can consider wall mounts, pendant lights, or vanity lighting for additional illumination. If you really want to elevate your space, and you have a high enough ceiling, you can even look into adding a chandelier or ceiling fan for additional lighting. The options are endless when it comes to bathroom lighting, so if you need help figuring out which bathroom light fixtures would look best in your space, schedule a consultation with our lighting experts today!

Tips On Where To Place Your Bathroom Light Fixtures

Listed below are some tips from our lighting professionals at lighting(one) of Cincinnati of where to place your different bathroom light fixtures:

  • Overhead Lighting - Whether you’ve decided to use ceiling-mounted or recessed lighting as your overhead lighting, it’s important to place them in the right place to prevent shadows and harsh lighting. Take a moment to determine where you do most of your grooming and daily hygiene routine. Place the lights a little behind that spot to prevent the light from shining directly down on your head. This will give you the best lighting design possible!
  • Task Lighting - Wall sconces, vanity lights, pendant lighting, and other task lights are great to incorporate around your mirror in your bathroom. The reason being, it provides additional illumination for you to see better when grooming, applying makeup, checking out your outfit, and more. Again, make sure the lighting isn’t pointing directly at you or the mirror to prevent unflattering lighting and odd shadows.
  • Additional Lighting Options - Light fixtures such as chandeliers and ceiling fans can be a great addition to your bathroom, so long as you have the space for it. If you have low ceilings or a smaller bathroom, these fixtures aren’t the best seeing as they can make the area feel smaller and more crowded. However, if you have higher ceilings or a larger bathroom, you can incorporate these light fixtures to create dimension and add an extra level of style.
