Actually, the idea of a high, horizontal window is pretty awesome and perfect for almost any shower or bathroom no matter the type of style. You can even have more than one such window, as exemplified in this contemporary bathroom featured on Ogawafisher. Another possibility is to illuminate the shower indirectly. Instead of having a window in the shower you can have the window positioned on the opposite wall so the light enters the shower and the rest of the bathroom. Of course, that means a transparent glass enclosure is in order for the shower.
While a table lamp is not safe for use on the bathroom, these Shutter Lights from A Good Thing are available in a hard-wired version that is perfect for the bathroom wall. The fixture's LEDs emit a diffuse light that you can control. The lid is the switch for turning the light on and off, but it can also control the amount of light that comes out, as well as the direction. It would be a very stylish alternative to a nightlight because it can be mounted on the bathroom wall near the door and easily controlled. In many cases, you will still need some sort of overhead light in the bathroom. that said, you don't have to go for the plain and boring sort from the home store. Instead, choose something that reflects the bathroom's interior design style. For instance, the fixture above has the shape of a basic ceiling light but is glammed up with rows of gems on the bottom as well as the sides. It`s a luxurious touch for a traditional or opulent bathroom design.
Bathroom Layout Tip 5: Remember ventilation. The bathroom that is used regularly will benefit significantly from some method of ventilation, either for clearing and freshening the air or for removing heavy, damp air from after a steamy shower. Not only does this feel better for the user, but it’s much easier on the home and can actually help to avoid structural damage.
Among all the bathrooms trends, this is one that gives your space a much larger feel. Attaching the vanity to the wall makes it appear to float, which opens up floor space, giving the room an airy feel. Combine that with a mirror that features backlighting and the effect is magnified. Anytime you add lighting to the mirror, it emphasizes the element and adds soft illumination. As bathrooms increasingly become about more than just personal hygiene, comfort takes the forefront as a big consideration. Adding a comfortable chair to the space is another one of the hot bathroom trends. Here, Arlex has installed a modern chair that also adds a bright pop of color to the spa-like room. It’s ideal for relaxing or for taking a seat while getting ready.
Once upon a time, pendants were relegated mainly to the kitchen and dining room, but no longer. These fixtures are a great way to add illumination in the bathroom. This DXV bathroom design uses two pendants to flank the mirror, much as sconces would, adding light to the vanity area. They can also be used without the backlight of the mirror to provide moodier lighting. Also, take note that they are sleek and minimal, not fussy. This makes them perfect for a variety of bathroom styles. Pendants can also be used over the vanity in a more traditional arrangement. This bathroom design puts the fixtures off center over the expanse of countertop, where light is most needed. The large, exposed bulb styles are a novel thing to use on the bathroom, but they add a bit of an eclectic touch to an otherwise modern and minimalist bathroom vanity set. They are also a bright counterpart to the backlighting of the mirror, which is becoming more common in today’s bathroom lighting schemes. Of course, pendant lighting is not limited to the bare-bulb style. Add some luxurious warmth to the bathroom by choosing a pendant like Fin, by Original BTC from the UK. This pendant is made from bone china formed into an organic shape that has a really appealing glow when lit. Any style of pendant can be used in the bathroom, from global and organic to modern or industrial. The main idea is to throw out any preconceived notions of what bathroom lighting should be and instead opt for fixtures that are functional and achieve the look you want.
