Models of Bathroom Lights
In the past, traditional bathroom designs used only one overhead light that was meant to serve the sole purpose of illumination. Today, however, modern designs are going beyond simple lamination, to the point where one can even create different moods just by changing the lighting. Some major factors to consider with bathroom lighting in Toronto are: shape, size, natural lighting and design of the bathroom itself.
Ceiling Bathroom Light
This is a fixture that is centrally located to provide ambient light, and it is usually closed-mounted to shield it from the water. For safety reasons, one should avoid using pendant lights due to the exposed bulbs. Flush light fittings are now available in a wide range of designs, both modern and traditional, where one can choose to go for frosted or clear glass.
Recessed Bathroom Lights
This lighting fixture offers higher levels of illumination, and they can be installed over showers or bathtubs. They are sealed to withstand the moisture associated with these areas. You can get recessed lights in a variety of styles including white, brushed chrome, polished chrome and brass finish. Pot lights are also multi-directional, so they can be directed to a certain part of your washroom for a much evener lighting scheme.
Bathroom Wall Lights
This model of lighting fixture is unique because it has a lamp cover overtop the light itself, which changes the colour of the light and expands the ambient possibilities of your bathroom. Wall lights give off a gentle illumination, combined with style, makes your bathroom stand out. You can also have such lighting fitted above or to the side of your mirror. A dimmer can be used to control illumination, but this can also be done automatically using a preset system.
Other types of lighting that you can consider for your bathroom:
- Mirror lights for ambient lighting e.g. when shaving or applying makeup
- Mood lighting, which can include tile lights, underwater bath lights, illuminated rails and tile lights
- Nightlight to illuminate the bathroom or even hallway
Consider natural lighting
People are now doing all they can to lower their energy costs. You, too, can lower your bills by allowing more natural light to flow into your bath area. You can even get a skylight installed, as these are now available in very interesting designs. It is also wise to go with LED bulbs and lamps to increase energy efficiency.
