Eliminate Ugly Cast Shadows
Natural light can have a profound effect on the atmosphere of your bathroom and its decor. In the past, bathrooms came with a fixture over the sink or a combination light fixture/ventilation fan located somewhere in the middle of the 5ft x 8ft bathroom ceiling.
The narrowly focused light from this fixture did a super job of lighting the sink but unfortunately created weird shadows under your eyes, cheek bones and chin. Its a good thing that coming up with a better lighting solution isn’t difficult.
In today’s bigger, more beautiful bathrooms, lighting plays a new major role. Gone forever are the days of unimaginative lighting fixtures where a single light over the sink was enough to get the job done.
Create Striking Results With Layered Illumination
Modern bathroom gurus recommend a more layered approach to lighting your bathroom. Start with some daylight that comes from windows or purposefully placed skylights that open to provide ventilation as well as warm stimulating sunshine into the room.
Add a bit of agreeable artificial luminescence that complements the sunshine and basks the whole room in a soft radiance at night. Also be sure to add stylish contemporary fixtures that can be used for task lighting to create efficiency and safety in bathing and grooming areas.
The whole lighting effect can be enhanced through large mirrors which optically open up the space and magnify the luminance to paint your bathroom with light.
