Bathroom Lighting Ideas To Die For

Bathroom Lighting Ideas To Die For

Depending on the type of style and  atmosphere you want to have in your bathroom, you can choose lights that are suitable for it. If you are into minimalist kind, then you should choose modern lights with straight lines and shapes. But if you are a classic type, then you can put a chandelier or some classical wall lights like scone lights for example. Industrial and rustic light schemes are perfect for spaces that are designed in modern style mixed with industrial elements. This kind of lightning can be perfect for white and bright bathrooms.

 

Pendant Lighting

Suspended from the ceilings in such a beautiful way using chains or rods, the pendant lighting brings light to where exactly homeowners need it the most. Unlike other usual lighting, this lighting does its work in such a way that it grabs attention and admiration. Even with the electricity off, it still makes a gorgeous accessory.

Not as intricate as a chandelier, yet it is more than just hanging round light bulbs. With a variety of sizes, styles and shapes ranging from different diameters, it definitely has its own way to light up the room and deliver its functions.

 

Chandelier Swingin'

Here's something really sybaritic about a pretty chandelier in a bathroom. It makes the bathroom look less like a bathroom, and a little more like a place where you'd want to spend your whole day reading and drinking and soaking away the day. Your tub might just become your favorite place to lounge around in the house. Put up the finishing touch on your bathroom with a show-stopping chandelier.

The most important rule is to only use fixtures that are rated for use in damp or wet locations. Make sure that your fixtures should be at least 8 feet above the top of the bathtub rim. If that's not possible in your space, consider hanging the chandelier at the center of the room for a fancy bathroom that gives off a luxurious vibe. Or use a non-electrified chandelier; a faux one just for decorative purposes or even one with candles that will give you a more soft and cozy space. We love how these chandeliers make the room feel like more of an experience than just a space.

 

Classic Scones

There's nothing more unappealing than a dim, poorly lit bathroom. For the most flattering light in the bathroom, install sconces on either side of the mirror above the sink or a few inches from the mirror's edges. Any mirrors in your powder room will amplify the light from the sconces, making a smaller space feel brighter and larger. For the best skin loving light, use fabric shades or frosted glass shades!

So instead of a standard bar-style vanity light, choose a pair of beautiful scones to flank your mirror. Not only do the sconces work beautifully in this space, they're also a great choice for lighting the vanity area because they provide even cross lighting with minimal glare.

 

Swing Arm Lamps

 

Now in lieu of library lights, I have found out that swing arm lamps/sconces are one of the hottest trends at the moment. I especially love the industrial ones but there's also lots of other options like chrome, bronze etc.

 

Well maybe just before you buy an overhead light for your bathroom or powder room, you may want to consider a swing arm sconce instead!
