How to Choose the Best Bathroom Wall Light Fixtures

March 26, 2019 By: Administrator Category: Bathroom

Even though bathrooms are generally small spaces, lighting is very important when you are considering what type of light to purchase. Every area of the bathroom needs to be very well, but not glaring or overpowered by light—since it might look like a disco instead. Even windows, sources of natural light, need special consideration in this room since privacy can be an issue. Not only windows, your bathroom walls are also important parts to consider when you are designing your bathroom light fixtures.

First thing to consider; evaluate your bathroom walls to decide where you need lighting. Although the walls seem to be fine equally, you still won’t be comfortable in your own lovely bathroom if you place the wall light on the wrong spot. In general, bathrooms should be well-lit all over, including inside the shower, with extra light around the mirror. If you have windows in your bathroom, complete this step at night, as well.

Choose lighting on the walls around your mirror that illuminates from the top and both sides rather than just the top. Without side lighting, your lower face will be in shadows when you look in and use the mirror. Well, you wouldn’t want that would you? The shadowy-face? So choose a wall-sconce on either side of the mirror to provide this balanced light, along with your overhead lighting.

Speaking of wall sconce, a wall sconce is a light fixture attached to the wall with a decorative shield covering the bulb. Sconces come in a variety of shapes and designs to fit your bathroom theme. Among traditional styles are Art Deco, etched glass and shell-shaped. Sconces are available in a variety of finishes, including glazed, metallic and ceramic bisque.

When it comes to installing the wall light, first thing you have to consider is your height, especially when you ask others to install the light for you. Let’s say your height is around 170 cm (5.58 feet). So the height of the light from the floor shouldn’t be any lower than 180 cm, cause you might get electricity shock if you ever accidentally touched it while having a shower.

Different things count when you install the light aside the mirror, and you take shower not too close to the mirror. You can put it around 160-175 cm above the floor, it would five you a perfect light and by extension you’ll get a perfect view on your face in the mirror.

A bathroom might not be a particularly most important part of your house. But still, do not forget about the bathroom, cause it’s essentially a building part of your home as well as the most telling example to tell how clean and neat you are.

And speaking of the bathroom, its lighting is probably the last place people want to invest time and money. Mirrors go unlit, and oftentimes one ceiling fixture is used to light up the sink, mirror, and shower. However, as whirlpool tubs become larger and steam showers are added, more and more time is spent relaxing in the bathroom. Since you begin and end your day in the bathroom, why not spend a little extra time considering which fixtures and lights would work best?

Halogen bulbs are generally the standard for bathroom lighting, but the newest compact fluorescent bulbs are also a great option.Mount one fixture over the mirror to light a bathroom, but realize it can cause shadows on the face. If using recessed lighting, avoid creating shadows by not mounting them directly over the mirror, you can do one of these two:

  • Adding wall brackets to the side of the mirror is one of the best way to eliminate shadows on the face. For mirrors under 48 inch wide use, vertically mounted wall brackets and position them 75 to 80 inches above the floor.
  • If the fixture uses exposed lamps, do not use a higher wattage than 40 watts. Fixtures with clear or well diffused glass use nor more than 75 watts. Color corrected fluorescent lamps should be used when fluorescent fixtures are desired. A crisp white light renders skin tones most accurately.

Consider Dimming Bathroom Lights

This is one marvelous option which gives you a great facility of saving energy. You can use this dimming option to control the lighting of your bathroom.

Or otherwise, you look for un-shadowed and bright light, you can raise to the brightness you require in the bathroom. Well, your lighting requirement really needs to have a wise planning because they are multifunctional.

Use Bathroom Wall Scones

Purchase some stylish wall scones. If you are looking for elegant, soft, sophisticated bathroom lighting option, nothing can be outstanding than wall scones. This bathroom lighting fixture gives a striking look to your bathroom. They are most of the time recessed and placed away from sinks. This bathroom lighting option can be the best option placed near the cabinet or storage.
