Every part of your home deserves to be the centre of your attention, and yes, that includes your bathroom and vanity space too. Bathrooms and vanity spaces are truly your sanctuaries if you think about it, and ignoring these spaces while designing your lighting layout can be a blatant mistake. Bathrooms and vanity spaces are used by everybody, and they can speak a lot about the way you actually decorate your living space.
When you go about decorating your living spaces, it is essential that the entire theme or design style resonates with your personality. Lighting plays a key role in giving a space its true character, and it is essential to choose the right fixtures for your bathrooms too. While people usually splurge when it comes to choosing lighting fixtures for the rest of their homes, bathroom lighting is something that doesn’t really attract much attention. However, that is slowly changing, and now most of us want a dynamic bathroom that strikes the right balance between aesthetics and practicality.
You can choose to infuse a little modern charm into your bathroom and play around with textures, elements, and design styles to give your space the best look that you’ve dreamed of. The White Teak Company brings to you an array of bathroom lighting ideas that will change the way you’ve looked at that space ever before.
Find the right balance between mood lighting and functional lighting
The best way to decorate your bathroom or vanity space is to start with the ambience. While it may sound peculiar that ambience is a key factor in decorating your bathroom, it really defines your space and sets the tone too. And believe it or not, your bathroom is a very personal space, and it sometimes becomes your escape from everything there is.
Your bathroom is a highly functional space, and you would require a lot of task lighting, more than you can even think of. But that shouldn’t let you shy away from adding mood lighting to the space and creating a warm atmosphere in your bathroom or vanity space.
If we go by the usual layout for a bathroom, then your space can be split into three key zones that will require optimum lighting - the vanity space, the bath and the shower area. Now, your vanity area will require task lighting, and you can go for some intense lighting designs to surround the mirrors. Make sure that your vanity lights are placed vertically on either side of the mirror, unlike the usual placement that is above the mirror. That not only accentuates the aesthetic value of your vanity space but also gives you perfect illumination with very few shadows.
The next part is the overhead lighting design. Go all out with the overhead lighting fixtures, as they will add character to your space and also lend some drama to your bathroom. You would definitely want your primary lighting design to be crisp and have enough illumination to make your bathroom seem spacious. You can also layer the lighting designs to add intimacy to the space and create a much softer atmosphere. Add a few dimmable lighting designs to add versatility to this personal space.
