During the process of bathroom remodeling, an often overlooked detail is lighting. Adequate illumination is something many home owners don’t think about, when planning for a new bath. But, the bathroom is one of the most functional and widely used spaces in the home. It should provide adequate lighting in key functional areas.
One of the places where adequate lighting is needed in the bath, is near the vanity or sink. Family members will use this area to shave, put on makeup, or style their hair. Poor illumination over the sink can make many of these tasks difficult. In many baths, a single, overhead fixture is simply not enough. The style of the new light fixtures should work with the vanity and the overall style of the bath. Recessed ceiling lights just outside the shower area can be an effective and attractive option. Combining recessed lights with side or top vanity fixtures is a great way to add the layers of illumination needed for any task in the bathroom.
