Forget the old fluorescents and take a tour of different bathroom lighting styles that are available today. In fact, virtually any style of fixture can be used in your bathroom, as long as it provides the right kind of light and works with the decor. To properly illuminate your bathroom, you need several kinds of lighting. First, you need light that is bright enough for shaving, applying make-up and other self-care routines. On the other hand, you want the bathroom to feel serene, so you`ll want some ambient or accent lighting too. Here are some bathroom lighting ideas to transform your space. A little mood lighting for the bathroom can be just the ticket for creating a spa-like space. We really like these Tetra wall lights by Émilie Cathelineu for CVL for adding an artful touch as well. The fixtures come in different finishes and can be arranged in a multitude of combinations. The brass triangles can be placed to look like a single fixture or arranged across an expanse of wall for a flowing design. They would be perfect on the wall above a tub or beside the central bathroom mirror.
Floating shelves are, as we already mentioned on numerous occasions, extremely practical not just in bathrooms but also in pretty much any room of the house. You can see here a series of glass shelves complemented by a matching side table and an entire wall unit with open storage and display modules. It’s one of the designs proposed by Laufen. The bathroom shower plays its own role in giving this space a totally unique and interesting look. The Horizontal Shower is perhaps the most unconventional one of all. As the name suggests, you have to lie down horizontally when using it as opposed to standing up like you’d expect in most cases. A wall-hung toilet can offer many advantages such as easy cleaning and maintenance, a more open and spacious look and even a more refined and sophisticated appearance. In the case of luxury bathrooms like this one from Ceramica Flaminia this detail also helps to put an emphasis on the beauty of the marble floor.
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.
It`s best to decide what size your tub should be based on the dimensions and the layout of the bathroom and to aim for visual harmony. Avoid putting a large tub in a small bathroom. Even if it may seem like an ok idea at first, you can eventually feel like the room is claustrophobic and tiny because of that. A lot of times oval tubs seem to look longer than rectangular tubs. That`s usually just an impression. The standard tub size is generally the same regardless of the shape of the tub and has everything to do with the type.
The color combined with the lighting, the furniture, fixtures and decorations present in a particular space set the mood for that room and sometimes also set a theme for that space‘s interior design and decor. Some colors are better suited for certain types of spaces but there‘s really no general rule regarding that. That being said, what color would you choose for your bathroom if you were to redecorate the space right now? There are obviously many cool bathroom colors to choose from as well as plenty of beautiful and interesting combinations of colors. Let’s have a look at some of these options. Green is one of our absolute favorite colors and a great choice for contemporary bathrooms. It’s a fresh and vibrant color, full of energy but also able to set a tranquil and relaxing mood. We love the idea of a green wall that acts as a backdrop for wood furniture. It's a combination inspired by nature's beauty. Blue is a very popular bathroom color because of the association between this color and water or the sky. A light shade of blue, although of a cool nature, can make a space look and feel very relaxing and calming. That`s why blue is also a very great color for bedrooms.
