The bathroom is one of the hardest rooms to light adequately without presenting a space that seems cold and imposing. Unfortunately, a utilitarian ceiling light is often chosen based on a misconception that you really cannot do anything creative in the bathroom. Nevertheless, we know better.
Uniquely designed bathroom lights can provide beautiful illumination that is still fully functional at the same time. For example, choose our bathroom recessed lights to illuminate the bath and loo, while using decorative wall sconces over the vanity.
Using specifically designed bathroom lights offers a number of advantages:
Safety – The bathroom can be an area with high humidity due to poor ventilation. IP Rated Bathroom lights are safer than standard lighting because they are built to prevent moisture from penetrating the fixture. As there are regulations concerning the type of lighting that can be used in a bathroom, the overall priority should be safety and bathrooms are split into zones. For more information on bathroom lighting zones and IP numbers click here. Many of our bathroom lights are suitable for bathroom Zones 1 and 2
Durability – Along those same lines is the question of durability. Bathroom lights are built to withstand moisture so you are less likely to experience rusting or the build-up of lime and calcium.
Options – Because bathrooms are very specific spaces with a limited number of uses, they also have very specific lighting needs. Bathroom lights are best suited to those specific needs because they are designed only for that purpose.
Your bathroom does not need to suffer from insufficient lighting for lack of choices. Lights4Living carries a full line of great bathroom lights in all sorts of styles. We carry everything from recessed to wall-mounted to track lighting fixtures.
