Imaginative Bathroom Lighting Ideas

We have tons of clever little bathroom lighting ideas that can help you to achieve the right look and feel. The bathroom is after all one of the key areas for creating an impression of cleanliness and the image of a well-kept home. Remodelling, restoring or simply updating this area can help to breathe a sense of freshness into your whole home.

The right lighting plays a big part in defining the theme and style that is created in the bathroom. Get it right and the room will feel like a stylish and relaxing sanctuary, but get it wrong and you may end up with an overly lit room that seems a bit sterile and boring.

Define Your Goals

Total Restoration

If you are looking to completely remodel your bathroom then start by defining what you want to achieve. Ask yourself what type of theme are you going to go for? Do you want a minimalist ultra-modern look or maybe a more period design. Then you need to pinpoint which light fittings are going to help you to achieve this theme.

The Downlights are an excellent choice if you want a clean sharp modern look.  This will, of course, depend on the size of your bathroom, but the fewer you use the more tonal and atmospheric the lighting will be.

Layering the bathroom light is a great way to create a comforting ambience. The Century Wall Light works well to add to the contemporary theme. A pair of Centurys would look great either side of a bathroom mirror. This light has a opal glass diffuser for a gentle illumination, so when used in conjunction with dimmable Fireguard spotlights you can reduce the light and create a soft tone for a relaxing hot bath.
