When you start designing your home, consider the amount of the light that comes in. In some parts of the home, natural light may be harder to come by. So this means you’ll probably need improved sources of artificial light instead. Avoid these easy mistakes and make sure your new bathroom has plenty of light!
Poor Lighting Near the Mirrors
Depending on the type of lights you add, it could actually harm your eyes. Poor lighting contributes to the problem, so why would you let it continue? Shaving or doing makeup can be made much more difficult under poor lighting. By changing the lights that are located over the mirrors, you can improve the overall amount of light in your bathroom. Vanity lights and lights recessed in the ceiling can reduce the shadows in your bathroom and prevent any embarrassing mishaps that you might not notice until later in the day.
Skimping on the Number of Lights
Be sure to add as much light as possible. Skimping on the lights in your new bathroom is not going to help, either. Don’t overdo it on the recessed lighting, but strike a pleasant balance instead. The wattage of lights for your bathroom is recommended to be somewhere between 75 and 100 watts. You should also ensure that all of the lights in your bathroom are symmetrical. Unbalanced levels of light can throw off your morning routine and decrease the functionality of your bathroom, which is exactly what you don’t want to have happen to you!.
Not Adding More Lights
Although this point may sound like something we have already covered, it’s actually somewhat different. You shouldn’t hesitate to add lights over your bathtub or shower stall. The main reason many people are reluctant to do so is that they’re afraid the moisture will damage the fixtures or the lights themselves. But this isn’t the case. It all depends on the design choices you make. For instance, shy away from using brass or bronze for these light fixtures. They look fabulous but will suffer rust damage too easily. Chrome, nickel, and stainless steel are all better materials to use instead.
