If you think about it, most rooms in the house adhere to their own lighting scheme. Your living room is likely to have ambient lighting, perfect for relaxing and watching TV, whereas your kitchen is a practical space and much more likely to have bright lights. Similarly, your bathroom will need a significant amount of consideration as to how the room will be lit.
In the many decisions that need to be made when it comes to redesigning your bathroom, the lighting scheme can easily be overlooked. However, lighting is just as much an integral part of your design as the fittings and furniture! The right light can really enhance the overall appearance of your space, highlighting the features and focal points whilst also creating the right ambience for relaxation.
When it comes to choosing light fittings for your space, there are many things to consider. As with every aspect of redesigning your bathroom, the key thing to think about is how you actually use the space, as this determines the lighting you need in order to provide the right illumination for different areas of the room.
When you’ve chosen the right lighting for your bathroom, there may be one or two other fittings or accessories that could be useful in your space. For example, if you regularly use an electrical shaver, a shaver socket is a must-have fitting which mustn’t be forgotten about.
Lighting is an important part of your bathroom design and shouldn’t be considered as an afterthought to your overall design. If you’re working on a tight budget, then it’s well worth accounting for the cost of installing lighting when figuring out how much you have to spend.
