The bathroom is perhaps the most overlooked space, when it comes to lighting. With sanitation and luxury bath spaces claiming their place in modern homes, it is criminal to ignore the bathroom, your most personal space. Now, bathroom lighting has to be special. It is the one place where you are truly alone, truly yourself. So we’re not talking fancy, but ambient, relaxing lighting. While functionality is key (you can hardly groom those brows in poor lighting, of course), one hardly wants their alone space to be saturated with harsh, merely functional lighting. The bathroom space should be therapeutic and recreational, a space to unwind from the cares of the day. Scroll down for ideas on how to light your bathroom to transform it into a space where you are fully comfortable.
Strategically place those lights behind mirrors, under cabinets, or tuck them away into tray ceilings to bring an ethereal glow into your bathroom.

Even when it comes to lighting, natural is always best. Open up your bathroom space by replacing a wall with glass and placing it next to a high outer wall. This way, you can relax into a bath while gazing at the skies, and keep your privacy.

One wouldn’t think a bathroom is the right place for an ornate chandelier. With bathrooms featuring sophisticated art, and what not, we say why not! Go ahead, pick an elaborate centrepiece light for your bathroom, and let it take up the spotlight.
