Bathrooms probably are the most critical rooms in the home that need extra proper lighting. Most of them don’t have windows as the source of natural lights. It’s the room where you wash and groom, and maybe do morning meditations. You need proper lights because it plays an important part in your overall health and wellbeing.
Choosing the right bathroom wall light fixtures is never easy. You must consider the amount of lights needed in the bath. The answer refers to your bathing ritual. If you use your bathroom for a simple shower, 10 foot-candles (fc) might be sufficient. For bathing and relaxing in the tub, you need more lighting. And when it comes to shaving after a shower, 100 fc is needed to provide better visibility. Be sure you have wall lighting fixtures to serve as proper vanity lightings. Here are some tips:
1) Double arm bathroom spotlight lighting fixtures
This bathroom wall light fixture is suitable for your vanity to provide better visibility. This type is ideal to be mounted above mirrors as vanity lighting. For a modern minimalist look, choose the ones with polished chrome finish, but there are also the ones with classic looks in the market. This kind of lighting fixture is easier to operate with a pull switch.
2) Single bathroom wall lighting
To add a dim light over your bathtub, a single bathroom wall light fixture will do the job best. Chrome finished fixtures in cylindrical or rectangular shapes are perfect for a modern minimalist bathroom, while cone-shaped fixtures with bronze or brass will create a more classic look.
3) LED recessed bathroom wall lighting
When you using the LED recessed bathroom, the light will be shine downwards, creating calm and tranquil ambiance in your bathroom. It is not suitable for dimming but is perfect to be placed above your shower or bathtub.
4) Bathroom wall lighting fixture with frosted glass diffuser
This type of lighting is perfect as a vanity lighting for your bathroom and can be mounted over a mirror. The frosted glass diffuser will distribute the light throughout the bathroom and create a warm ambiance. You can add a dimmer to set the illumination level as well as shaver socket and pull switch to make the operation easier.
5) Mirror light bathroom wall lighting fixtures
This type of lighting will provide a bright, yet warm white color and the mirror will distribute the light thoroughly. The fixture’s arm protrudes from the bracket, and it’s not suitable for dimmer.
