bathroom lighting design
It may just be because your lighting is not good.
Lighting naturally creates shadows, and if you do not plan the lighting properly, you may find that your newly remodeled bathroom is not a happy place to imagine.
I am writing this article due to many questions raised by my neighbors.
As a lighting professional, they have a lot of questions for me about bathroom lighting.
It seems to be a difficult task for them.
There are many decisions to be made in the bathroom lighting design.
From design and placement to what fixtures to use, to what bulbs are the best.
I want to show you around the room and give you a rule of thumb when planning your own bathroom lighting design.
Shower light shower is undoubtedly a space that requires embedded lighting.
It is very important to use a recessed clamp, which is made for the shower and is rated to work in conditions of humidity and possible contact with water.
In addition, you will want to use the bulb rated for use in the shower.
Most products are clearly marked as such.
Personally, we have a dimmer on our shower light.
It allows anyone to wake up slowly as Dawn advances into the shower.
But it\'s important to provide enough light for you to shave and see what you\'re doing.
The bathtub lighting depends on the height of the bathtub, and if it is separated from the shower, the lighting solution here will be different.
Let\'s say you have a separate bathtub here.
If not, you won\'t do anything different than what I outlined above.
Usually, you will use embedded lighting above the bathtub area.
There is no need to have water-rated fixtures and bulbs in this place.
One or two embedded fixtures for the outside of the bathtub will provide what you need.
Targeting the outside of the tub will provide light to see what you are doing but will reduce any glare.
The Mirror and vanity lighting in this area is probably the most critical place.
Incorrect lighting when you try to apply make
The pit can be a shave or a shave.
Lighting Company offers a variety of functions and decorative options for vanity/Mirror lighting.
Decorating and surrounding the mirror with vanity strips is a way to provide light.
Make sure you buy vanity bulbs with lower wattage or frosted glass so you won\'t be blind.
The mistake I \'ve seen a lot of people make is that their bulbs are too powerful and then they twist a few bulbs to lower the light level.
This completely defeats the purpose of having a vanity zone, as it should distribute light evenly.
We decided to use our home.
Now that I think about it, we used it in all three bathrooms.
The owner has 3 because we have a long vanity and a small hole in the glass.
There are scones next to the mirrors in the other two bathrooms.
When you choose to have more than two sinks, it is important that the spacing must make the light come from both sides of each sink.
The spacing here is not so critical;
Just make sure they are evenly spaced.
Most people have tents standing in front of the sink and you won\'t want sconce to stand in front of you!
Their height should be the height of the eyes.
This will need to be slightly adjusted depending on the sconce type you choose.
The bottom line is that you don\'t want to see the bulb itself when you stand and look at sconce.
If you are lucky enough, the ceiling in the bathroom is high, go and buy a small decorative device, such as a small chandelier.
The rule of thumb for Chandelier size is calculated by adding the width of the room to the length of the room. (
Alternatively, if you are installing multiple lighting devices, use the dimensions of the area in which the device is used for lighting. )
This number should be equal to the diameter of the fixture. Ie.
The main bathroom of 15X13 bath requires a chandelier or decorative fixture of about 28 sqm in diameter.
In your overall bathroom lighting design, all embedded fixtures are suitable for embedded fixtures.
What I don\'t like is the ceiling that looks like Swiss cheese.
After you have planned all the other lighting, it is prudent to use embedded lighting to meet other lighting needs.
If using a recessed style in the toilet area, find the jar in front of the toilet instead of right away.
There\'s no reason to be in the spotlight!
Use a recessed light to illuminate the dead corner area or to illuminate the sitting/reading area.
Yes, some bathrooms are large enough for reading or rest.
Above the bench or reading area is the perfect place to insert a recessed fixture.
Now, I\'m going to throw this in.
For the purposes of reading, my neighbor wanted to put a small fridge above the toilet.
Use the same rule of thumb as the mirror sconces and place the fixture at about the height of the eye.
Some kind of lighting that night lighting can hold all night is not only a safety solution, but also allows you to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without waking yourself up completely.
A lot of people use night lights and it\'s a great solution if you don\'t have much space in your bathroom.
I like to use accent light lighting when there is room.
A small lamp with a long life bulb or a compact fluorescent bulb that provides a wonderful day and night Focus Lighting.
Either on your dresser or on a small table.
There are many components in the bathroom lighting design.
The above should allow you to start working in the process, or at least convince you that your electrical union puts the junction box in the right place.
My last suggestion is to put all your bathroom lighting on the dimmer.
Many of us used our bathroom as a peaceful escape.
To achieve this goal;
Lighting is a huge component.
Can dim the lights to create a perfect atmosphere.
