Lighting Advice (© Dar Lighting)
lighting should be both practical and stylish. As there are regulations
concerning the type of lighting that can be used in a bathroom,
the overall priority should be safety.
lights are not permitted in a bathroom so for mood lighting use
ceiling mounted directional spotlights aimed away from the bath
and at interesting features. Lights designed specifically for
showers are available and must be carefully fitted according to
diffused glass light either side of a mirror will give a good
general illumination where it is needed. Also consider halogen
downlights from the ceiling or a fluorescent strip light over
are often incorporated into the mirrors themselves with sections
of the reflective surface removed and lights fitted behind them.
This is an effective way of generating an even light and improving
general illumination in the rest of the bathroom either use downlights
for their refreshing halogen colour or a high output flush ceiling
fitting to suit the decor.
