Bathroom lighting

One of the most popular places in a modern apartment is the bathroom. It is known to have high humidity and often lack of sunlight. Ease of use is built both from the area of the room, the necessary equipment, and from the lighting solution. In this article, we will try to help you with the choice of lighting so that your time in the bathroom is as comfortable as possible for you.

Complete comfort in the bathroom is created from many details, one of which is lighting. Let's analyze the 4 main types of lighting that are necessary to set up the right atmosphere and break them down point by point:

  • working;
  • directional;
  • decorative;
  • scattered.

Working lighting.

Allows you to see yourself better in the bathroom. Note that work lighting next to a mirror is very important.

Designers recommend hanging sconces on each side of the mirror at eye level so that shadows do not form under the eyes, nose and chin. This type of lighting is convenient for applying makeup, shaving.

Tip: don't hang lights above a mirror. In addition to the formation of shadows, such lighting will visually add 10 years to you. It is important for all of us to look young and cheerful.

Proper bathroom lighting will give you confidence all day long. This is important.
Recommends using 20-25W LED bulbs.

Tip: Put a dimmer in your bathroom. This will allow your retina to adjust to the desired glow of the light device. It is useful to smoothly adjust the lighting after waking up in the morning and before going to bed in the evening.

Directional lighting.

If you love using art in your bathroom, accent lighting is great for bringing out the elements in a clear way.

Decorative lighting.

If your bathroom is square, we recommend that you use only one pendant luminaires. If the room is larger and has a rectangular shape - two or three chandeliers.

We suggest considering the option of using scented candles. This will create a relaxing and romantic atmosphere in the bathroom. Make sure candles are at a safe distance from flammable objects such as towels and hair. Do not leave candles unattended.

Ambient lighting.

Fills the space in the bathroom. We recommend installing lights around the entire perimeter of the room if your bathroom has high ceilings, vaults and consoles. A pendant lamp with translucent shadows is perfect for decorative and diffused lighting.

Tip: when installing a spotlight above the sink, display a separate switch for it. So that when the working lighting is turned on, the additional one does not turn on.

Decorative lighting is provided by HOKASU LED modules in warm light of 2500 K. They are embedded in a plasterboard niche and create the effect of the absence of contact between the niche and the main ceiling - the niche seems to be floating.
LED modules are also laid under the mirrors - this solution eliminates the shadow effect.
