Bathroom Lighting Solutions


Throughout the lockdown period, we’ve given you tips on how to plan and design your garden lighting, the predicted lighting trends of 2020 and now we’re bringing you some inspiration for your bathroom lighting!

The bathroom is one of the first places you visit in the morning, and one of the last at night, so why not create a space which makes you smile? Although not typically thought of as a room where you can splash your personality on, you really can find stylish, contemporary or elegant lighting for your electrician to install and transform the room to match any theme you want.

Mirror Lighting

The mirror in your bathroom is usually one of the main fixtures, which makes it a perfect object to accessorise with lighting! Having bulbs put around the sides of your mirror can add that glamorous allure, much like a vanity table, and also provides great light when looking at yourself in it. You can also get mirrors with a built-in LED light behind it to give off some subtle light. These types of mirrors look great in a bathroom with a sleek and sophisticated design, as it looks clean and any wires or lighting fixtures are hidden away.

Downlights are very versatile and can also work well in a bathroom. Having downlights installed into your ceiling will give a simple but effective look. There’s no unnecessary fixture on the ceiling which, in turn, makes your bathroom seem more open and spacious. Another benefit with downlights is that you can have them positioned anywhere you want in the ceiling. Providing light directly where you need and want it to be. They also look great in any style bathroom.

Floor Lighting

If you really want to make a statement, floor lights are very impressive. They can instantly make any bathroom look like one you would find in a 5-star hotel or straight out of a swanky showroom. You can get floor lights in various colours too, which if chosen correctly can enhance the finish and tones of your walls and bathroom furniture.

Wall Lighting

There are so many types of wall lights that are suitable for use in a bathroom. You may be surprised that some of them look just like the type you would have installed in your living room! The good thing about wall lights is that they come in many different sizes. This means that you can have multiple small ones in one area or a couple of large ones in the main areas that you need them in. Wall lights can also be installed to turn off and on with the main wall switch or pull, or to be independent and only be turned on manually when you need them. So, if you had small wall lights around your mirror and sink area, they don’t need to be on and using energy when not in use, you can just use a fixture with a pull to turn them on or off when you need that extra bit of light when looking in the mirror.
