A Few Lighting Tips for the Bathroom

In the bathroom you need even, shadow-free lighting for shaving, grooming and applying make-up.

In small bathrooms mirror lights will illuminate the entire room, but in large bathrooms an additional ceiling fixture is needed. A recessed infrared heat lamp will give you added warmth.

For small mirrors, decorative wall brackets on each side will illuminate both sides of your face evenly. You can also mount a wall bracket across the top of the mirror.

Fixtures equipped with incandescent bulbs behind diffusers provide flattering light. Pick warm tones when using fluorescents.

Theatrical lighting strips around your bathroom mirror will give you the same lighting the stars enjoy.

Tub and shower enclosures can be adequately lit by placing an enclosed damp location recessed downlight in the ceiling. Theses downlights are also recommended over whirlpool baths and saunas.
