Creative Ways to Light Your Bathroom
The bathroom is probably the last place you think of when deciding to add some new life into your space; there's not a lot of room to work with, and most of it is occupied by large fixtures. (Don't even think of a toilet tank cozy.) However, some new lighting trends are emerging that may have you contemplating a bathroom makeover this spring. Here are some ideas you might like to consider for your own home design.
Dressing Room Style Lighting
I’m loving dramatic lighting designs this season and dressing room style lighting is great for adding instant wow factor to the bathroom. Dressing room style lights are basically bare light bulbs that surround a mirror (I love the rectangular style offset by the round bulbs). Not only does this design provide maximum light, it also adds a some Old Hollywood glamour to your home. This type of lighting is great for applying makeup on those dark winter mornings.
Illuminated mirrors are a superb addition to any bathroom as they not only provide light but also a beautiful mirror that is functional and stylish. You can choose from a variety of designs to complement your bathroom and opt for a size to suit you. This is a great choice of lighting for those who want something simple and subtle.
Under Basin Lighting
If you want a bathroom that is guaranteed to stand out, under basin lighting will do the trick. You can choose from a range of coloured lights (I would love a calming, soft blue) to really transform your bathroom and set a mood, or opt for classic white lights. This feature will add something special to an ensuite bathroom or a guest bathroom.
Colour Changing Mirrors
A colour changing mirror allows you to change the mood in your bathroom when you please. You can change the colour when you fancy a change in decor, and you can also use different colours when you want to relax and when you are just getting ready for the day ahead.
If you want to add a magical touch to your bathroom but don’t want to spend a fortune, fairy lights are perfect. They work well in children’s rooms but can add a lovely glow and create a magical atmosphere in any room. Put them in a large glass vase as a table decoration or drape them from a curtain pole. You can find some fabulous lighting options online at Bright Lightz.
