You know how important proper lighting is for your bathroom. Here are our top tips for achieving the best light in your bathroom.
♦ For the most flattering light, mount wall sconces on either side of the bathroom mirror to evenly cast light without shadows.
♦ Hang wall sconces around eye level of the primary user.
♦ If you don’t have room on either side of the mirror, a vanity light or bath bar above the mirror is a great option for task lighting.
♦ Most vanity lights come in a variety of sizes with multiple lights to suit small and large spaces.
♦ Bath vanity lights should be between 70 to 90% of the width of the mirror.
♦ To avoid looking out of balance, fixtures should not be wider than the width of the mirror.
♦ Make your bathroom bright enough with multiple light sources so you can safely and easily perform daily tasks.
♦ Aim for a white light with a color temperature between 2700K and 3000K. This is ideal for master bathrooms.
♦ Mimic the quality of natural daylight to produce the most flattering light.
