From minimalist bath bars with clean lines to more traditional styles with multiple glass shades, there must be a bath light that adds to the modern aesthetic of your bathroom.
The bathroom is often one of the smaller rooms in the home. Dark areas in a room create the perception of less space. Vanity lighting is a good way to open the room through the use of light. Combinations of lighting and elements such as mirrors create the appearance of more space. Lighting is available in numerous options for finishes and shades to meld with every decor style. Maximum lighting happens through the use of polished chrome shades that reflect the light. For a sophisticated glow, etched or milky shades have a bright and warm appeal.
Major Types of Vanity Lighting
There are three main types of vanity lighting. Horizontal vanity light is installed right above your mirror containing anywhere between two and six bulbs. Bath bar is similar to a horizontal vanity light but can also run vertically on either side of the mirror. Also, known as a vanity light bar. Bath sconce is a wall sconce with one light or bulb on either side of the mirror. Vanity lights can be eigh upwards or downwards. An up light has the purpose of illuminating the room. These are great for half baths. A down light is perfect for focusing your bathroom vanity light, which is ideal for applying makeup or grooming. This is also a great type of vanity lighting for master bathrooms.
Finishes of Bathroom Vanity Lighting
Bathroom vanity lighting is designed to offer even, glare-free light. These types of lighting generally includes multiple bulbs to achieve even illumination. It is a task light for providing adequate illumination for styling hair, putting on makeup, or brushing teeth. Vanity lighting mounted above a bathroom mirror or two sconces flanking each side of a mirror will offer effective task lighting in a average sized bathroom. It can also act as an ambient counterpoint to general overhead lighting. Bathroom vanity lighting is available in different shade materials and finish, popular ones being glass, metal, antique bronze and chrome. Use daylight temperature bulbs for bathroom vanity task lighting to ensure the most accurate depiction of color while performing personal hygiene and grooming tasks.
Arrange Bathroom Vanity Lighting in the Right Way
Without a doubt, vanity lighting is well-suited to both commercial and residential bathrooms. However, these lights are also functional in other spaces such as dressing rooms, walk-in closets, photography studios, and salons. Vanity mirrors with lights serve multiple purposes and work to illuminate small spaces, provide concentrated task lighting, or brighten spaces with little to no natural light. Smaller bath lights are ideal for half-baths and smaller bathrooms but can also be arranged in multiples for larger spaces. Two or three light fixtures and recessed lighting look great above sinks and single lights are ideal for makeup vanities.
Depending on what your vision is for your bathroom, you may incorporate a slim and minimalist bath bar to blend in with the existing decor. It can also serve to make a design statement by being bold and decorative. Where vanity lighting is used for the task lighting for the bathroom, you can add accent lighting to your bathroom with the use of wall sconces. Wall sconces accent your bathroom’s design by creating depth and highlighting different areas of the bathroom. With your task and accent lighting covered, the only section left is the ambient lighting. This is where your bathroom ceiling lighting comes into play. Ceiling lights can illuminate the entire bathroom and provide the necessary lighting to navigate.
