Bright Ideas: 3 Easy Bathroom Lighting Tips from Beazer Homes[/su_column] [/su_row] [su_row] [su_column size=”1/1″]
Though your home’s bathroom(s) see a lot of traffic, they may not be the first rooms that come to mind when you consider lighting design. Similar to selecting the right kitchen lighting, a little planning can go a long way in taking this utilitarian space from ho-hum to a beautiful, enjoyable environment!
Check out these quick tips from our partners at Beazer Homes to take your bathroom lighting design to the next level:
Think in layers. Look at tasks associated with different areas of your bathroom and assess whether you currently have enough light for activities like bathing, applying makeup and selecting clothes. It may be necessary to add direct lighting in those areas for increased visibility.
Avoid relying solely on recessed fixtures over vanities. These can cast shadows and make grooming tricky. Instead, opt for a mix of stylish overhead fixtures for ambient light, and smaller, individual fixtures in areas of increased activity.
Ensure your fixtures are rated for areas with increased moisture. Not all light fixtures are suitable for a specific space or room. It’s important for safety reasons to ensure any fixtures you select that will be in close proximity to water are “wet” or “shower-location” rated.
Whether building a new home or revamping your existing space, these easy tips can give your bathrooms the perfect amount of lighting style![/su_column] [/su_row]
