The lighting of the bathroom is very essential and must create a pleasant atmosphere. There are three light sources necessary for this. Functional lighting for applying make-up or shaving, general or harmonious lighting to illuminate the entire room and finally ambient lighting to give a seal.
The functional lighting is located above the sink and near the mirrors. Good location, good power and a color close to daylight are needed to shave, apply makeup and admire with precision! The lighting placed too high or too low will tend to accentuate the dark circles or create shadows. Functional lighting meets a specific purpose. Often presented as wall sconces or recessed spotlights in the ceiling or in the bathroom cabinet, it provides direct and precise light, but not aggressive.
Mostly located on the ceiling, the general lighting gives the tone of the room and allows seeing everything clear at all hours. Consider installing this lighting to avoid dark corners in the room. It must be soft and not aggressive so as not to dazzle you in the morning. A yellow light gently illuminates the face but does not reveal the true colors. It is the more appropriate light for general lighting. A discreet luminosity is conducive to a relaxing atmosphere.
This lighting gives the cachet and creates an atmosphere. It transforms your bathroom into a comfortable room where you can relax. A white light provides lighting closer to daylight. It is therefore ideal for lighting in the bathroom.
You should always test the influence of light on the ambiance of your bathroom at every moment of life. Soft light for your moments of relaxation, white light for makeup, play with your lighting! Intensity, color, heat, you can choose according to your desires to create all the desired effects and atmospheres.
