Lighting – How Bathroom Lighting Defines the Function of the Room
Part 4 in a series of lighting issues.
Most people don’t think of a bathroom as a multi-function room. After all, it is a bathroom, it has it’s functions and that’s all there is to say about it. Not quite, for some people, a bathroom doubles as a retreat with spa qualities and fixtures to help provide their chosen type of relaxation. The lighting in a bathroom can, as in any other room in your home, define the feel, the mood and use of the room.
A simple, basic lighting plan might include a simple overhead light with exhaust fan along with one of the many possible vanity lights available. Whatever style your bathroom has, you can emphasis it to various degrees, by changing the lighting. Or, you can alter the lighting plan to take the style in the opposite direction. Many homeowners are utilizing recessed can lights in bathrooms, pendant lights instead of traditional vanity lights, cabinet lighting, and even zoned floor lighting. Once again the possibilities are endless. Putting your bathroom lighting on dimmers can also give you the flexibility to have the function and utilitarian aspects you need, as well as provide you with the ability to create the relaxed atmosphere you desire.
As I said before, for some people a bathroom is a bathroom and for others it can be more than just a bathroom. Everyone has specific ideas of what they want in a bathroom.
