Whether you realize it or not, you spend a great deal of time in your bathroom everyday. From your morning routine to getting ready for bed, being comfortable in your bathroom is important, as well as ensuring the room brings you function and utility. Whether you need to replace an old fixture or are looking for a complete revamp, there are numerous ways to improve your bathroom’s lighting scheme. If you’re looking for some help, the Hobrecht Lighting team is here for you. Today, we’ll take a look at some different bathroom lighting ideas to help you make the best decision for your home.
Dimmers for Those Early Mornings
Have you ever walked into your bathroom in the early hours of the morning, when there is little to no natural light, and been nearly blinded by the sudden surge of illumination from your ceiling bathroom lights? Trust us, you’re not alone. If you can’t handle this shock everyday, installing dimmers and dimmable lights in your bathroom is an easy and long-lasting solution. An intense light is great when you are applying makeup or finishing up a shave, but using it to wake up probably isn’t the most appealing option. Dimmers give you the option to set the brightness, allowing you the freedom to increase or decrease the output
Overhead lighting and strip lighting are often the norm when it comes to bathroom light fixtures. If you are sick of relying on your ceiling to illuminate your bath and grooming activities, installing wall lights and sconces can completely change your powder room. If your bathroom has certain corners that don’t receive as much light, utilizing a sconce or other wall fixture can fix that problem with limited effort. Using wall sconces in your vanity area is also a highly beneficial move. If you do not have a powerful track lighting fixture and find yourself missing spots while shaving or applying too little blush, having a sconce directly residing over your bathroom sink can give you the perfect amount of light to ensure you look your best.
You use the mirror in your bathroom whether you are washing your hands, brushing your teeth, or taking care of any sort of task in your powder room. Much like sconces, backlit mirrors can be a great option if you suffer from lack of vanity lights or just want to add a unique touch to your bathroom. You have several options when it comes to backlit mirrors. These include mirrors with built-in backlights or specialty track or string lights that can be installed around a mirror to give it the illumination you are looking for.
