I’m sure you can relate your bathroom to your own luxurious sanctuary, where you can simply relax and enjoy the tranquility of a warm bath.
To create a perfect ambiance many factors contribute: lighting, color of the room and its furniture, temperature.
Today is all about the lighting.
The types of light needed for the best bathroom atmosphere are task, accent, decorative and sparkle.
Task lighting – proper lighting at the mirror is very important, avoid adding a light above the mirror.
This unique wall lamp is Brubeck by Delightfull for Maison Valentina. Back to art deco and again with musical inspiration, this time through the dramatic pipe organ. Brubeck ﬁxture is an instant classic sculptural design. An extravagant shape full of reﬁnement and modernity. This is a natural decor piece which gives a soft and cozy light, great for an exclusive atmosphere.
Randall Whitehead recommends using a pair of sconces mounted at eye level on either side of the mirror to provide shadowless illumination. This creates the best scenario for makeup application, shaving, tooth care and so on.
Here the light stays above the mirror so you’ll have shadows while you are looking at the mirror.
Accent Lighting – A small recessed spotlight directed at a piece of decorative art or a beautiful powder room basin creates another layer of light in the bathroom.
This adds visual sparkle. Whitehead advises using a single pendant in a square-shaped bathroom for just the right touch.
Use big mirrors in your bathroom. It will give more space to the room.
This acts as fill light. “In bathrooms with taller ceilings, a cove or cantilever details, ambient lighting fixtures can be installed along the perimeter of the space,” Whitehead says. “Architectural details such as these can hide the fixture and create indirect lighting.”A pendant fixture with a translucent shade can be a source of both decorative and ambient light.
