Lighting in a bathroom can completely transform the look and feel of the room, by use of subtle lighting, it is possible to enhance the decor and by utilising strategically placed mirrors, a small bathroom can be made to look larger.
Of course it is not just about the ambience of a bathroom, lighting is essential when it is dark, but also it can help with makeup and shaving even in daylight conditions. Modern lighting is a million miles away from the old 60 watt bulb hanging down from the centre of the ceiling; in fact this could often cause unpleasant shadows in the room.
Spotlights placed in the ceiling using modern technology can be very eco-friendly and they will soon save the initial outlay by savings in electricity. Wall lighting is very much to the forefront in a modern bathroom setting and it does not have to be contemporary either. One fine example of an Edwardian style wall light is the double elliptical wall light from Burlington; you can almost imagine yourself in a swish London hotel in the twenties!
Motion sensor lighting is the perfect answer to using the bathroom or toilet in the hours of darkness, one example proving extremely popular is the Unique Lighting Motion Sensor three light pack that will be easy on the pocket too as this uses just four AA alkaline batteries which have an average life span of a year, perfect for hallways as well as bathrooms.
