When it comes to lighting in interior design, bathrooms are often overlooked in Columbus Ohio. It’s easy to find galleries filled with pictures of lighting ideas for the kitchen and living room. This blog will help raise the bathroom curtain on an array of lighting designs.
The bathroom is essentially the comfort room; we all begin and end the day there. It’s a place to relax, so why wouldn’t we give it some importance by installing lighting to set the right mood?
Variations in types of lighting include task lighting, ambient lighting, and accent lighting.
Task lighting is used on areas where duties are performed – think of areas that are better suited highlighted by a brighter light. Task areas are usually the places in the bathroom where you groom, shave, wash your face, and brush your teeth. More often than not, many make the mistake of installing fixtures above the mirror or on the ceiling directly above the mirror. In contrast, vertical lighting on the side of the mirror leaves a great result.
Ambient lighting is an available light from all directions in a room without any visible light source. This type of lighting is most popular among bathroom remodels, it’s simple and doesn’t cause any hassle or complications. Although any homeowner can still find ways to be innovative with it. For instance, instead of installing a fluorescent on the ceiling, try a pendant lamp, chandelier, or cove lighting.
Lastly is accent lighting, it gives focus and shape to a room. It also adds depth and shade to a particular object. This type of lighting can be formed through spotlights, tracks, and table lamps. You can be creative with it as well; choose which objects should be highlighted and accent lighting will give them depth.
