Finding the Right Light Fixtures for Your Bathroom

Posted by

The bathroom is one of the many rooms in your home where the quality of lighting can make a big difference. Whether you’re looking to create a certain atmosphere in this part of your home or you’re in need of the perfect lighting to do your makeup in, the light fixtures that you settle on are going to be big contributors.

In today’s blog, we are going to touch on a few of the different things that you should take into consideration when you’re searching for light fixtures for your bathroom. Keep reading to see a few of the tips that will help narrow down the options and help you find the best fit for your bathroom lighting fixtures.

Work Your Way Down

Bathroom lights are known for being bright and clean. The best way to find the right balance in lighting for your bathroom is to start from the top and work your way down. As you look in your bathroom, you want to start with the ceiling where the primary light source should be. This could be anything from a ceiling fan to a stand-alone bulb. By starting with this primary light fixture and source, you can better recognize the areas where light support will be needed.

Once you’ve settled on a primary light source in the ceiling, focus on the vanity. Like we said before, it’s good to work your way down. The fixtures surrounding the vanity should contribute the second largest amount of light in your bathroom.

There are a few different options in regards to the available vanity fixtures. Once you’ve determined which fixture you like the most, turn that and your primary light source on to see if you need any additional light. If so, keep working your way down until you’ve found the ideal balance of light for your bathroom.

Focus on Balance

We’ve said the word balance a few times in this blog, and that’s because it should be the primary focus as you go about finding your bathroom lighting. When you have too much light in a bathroom, it can be overwhelming while too little light can leave for a bathroom that looks less than desirable to use. For that reason, it’s good to make sure that you’re finding the ideal amount of light for your bathroom.

If you use the approach where you start from the top of the room and work your way down, you should find a solid balance of lights along the way. There are also various light fixtures that work together to create a cohesive look, and you’ll likely find this in the process of working your way down the room.

Invest in Quality Light Bulbs

As you may have assumed, the quality of light in your bathroom is going to vary based on the quality of the light bulbs that you’re selecting. If you’re only purchasing light bulbs based on price, then you’re going to get what you paid for. LED light bulbs are one of the more costly options in regards to light bulbs, but they offer countless benefits. One of the most notable ones being that they conserve energy.

A benefit that you’ll be able to take advantage of in terms of your bathroom lighting, however, is the bright light that these bulbs are known for putting out. As we mentioned earlier, it’s in your bathroom that you want to enjoy high-quality lighting. The light fixtures that you select will definitely contribute to the quality of lighting in your bathroom, but you’ll want to make sure that you’re only using quality light bulbs as well.
