After that it’s the old design adage of form follows function. We need our bathroom lights to work hard for us, bright enough for the morning shave or make up application and then again subtle enough for a relaxing evening bath. You can use task lighting in these areas that require bright likes or illuminated mirrors.
Flush ceiling lights give a focal point to the room, and then spotlights can be fitted over the bath and shower, single downlights over the shower area or bar and plate fittings over the bath.
LED spotlights in the floor can create a different ambience in the room, providing soft lights to create a relaxing atmosphere or used to illuminate shelving.
