Unlike former days, bathrooms today are a special subject to skilful architecture, aimed at making them look lavish with all the possible facilities. Bathrooms are irreplaceable when it comes to assessing their importance, whilst other parts of our dwellings could be substituted with one another to some extent. Presently, bathrooms are designed to provide utmost luxury to appeal the eye and leave people awestruck. However, like every other space in the house, bathrooms too need special care when it comes to lighting.

We start our day in the bathroom, get ready for our undertakings in the same place and again feel the need to visit it before finally going to sleep. Thus, to address the need for tailored lighting, a wide range of methods are available to choose from, which could considerably change the looks of our toilets.

Lights etched in the ceiling of the toilets are called recess, and play the main role in enlightening the aura. With the proper intensity, layout and design of recessed lighting, fairly darker corners of the toilets can gleam with a lustrous, cosy glow, such as the small of the wall adjacent the bath rub. At times, recessed lighting is laid down in the floor in a peculiar, mosaic manner to lighten up as someone steps on to the floor. A breath-taking effect of alternate patches of shadow and illumination can be achieved with a spiralling trail of recessed lighting.

Sconces are decorative brackets that are hung on walls to serve as embellishments. Similar sconces can be used to ornate our bathrooms and the spaces around vanity to add a chic touch. Sconces come in innumerable shapes, and designs. Using sconces around the space of the vanity can give that studio-effect, making our daily make-overs unusually glamorous. The dependency on natural light to prefect our touch-ups can be considerably reduced. Sconces made up of translucent and transparent glass allow greater light to be emitted, giving a soft glow which is soothing.

Metal sconces are glossy, and eye catching, with a solid build making it look like a mini-beacon. The main advantage of sconces coming in different sizes and shapes is that they can be used to emphasise the general patterns of the tiling of the lavatory and the rest of the architecture. Talking about vanity, in addition to sconces, there are lighting techniques which focus the brightness of the vanity specifically. This adds a retro touch, but at the same time is extremely classy and offers convenience when one needs to use the sink solely.

Pendant lighting is extremely beneficial when one wishes to add a sleek royal touch to the bathroom. These small, hanging bulbs aren’t only pragmatic when the need arises to brighten up only certain spaces of the toilet, but relatively inexpensive when it comes to revamping the lighting patterns.
Another hassle-free yet a stunning means of making the gleam in our lavatories more dreamy is the use of striped lighting which is a stripe of lights that could be used on and around the vanity, frequently. Happy lighting!
