Whether you are getting ready for the day, taking off make-up, or just getting out of the shower, nearly any daily bathroom routine is far easier when the space is properly illuminated. But it can sometimes be difficult to find just the right look for your space. To help make picking out the perfect lighting just a bit easier, we found some great bathroom lighting ideas to help you get inspired!
Vanity Lights are a traditional and classy way to make sure your mirror and vanity are fully illuminated. A multi light fixture like the one below makes for multiple subtly different angles of light that can ensure you don’t miss a thing. And to add another lighting element, you can even pair the vanity light with a semi-flush fixture like the one peeking from the reflection in the mirror.
Sconces are a more versatile lighting option that can be wall mounted anywhere from eye level to just a few inches from the ceiling. The sleek modern sconces pictured below are combined with traditional damask wallpaper and a classically styled pedestal sink create the perfect balance of classic and contemporary.
This airy feeling bathroom design feels especially tall in part due to the pairing of small sconces with subtle recessed lighting that stays neatly out of the way. Although recessed lighting doesn’t create much of a design statement in and of itself, its understated design allows other fixtures or design elements to stand out that much more.
Oversized sconces make a big impact flanking a modern-rustic vanity in this sleek bathroom design. The long lines of the sconces echo the shape of the paneling behind them, making for a harmonious appearance in spite of exceptionally large accents.
Bathroom lighting is certainly not limited to the vanity area. This stunning tub alcove features coordinating fixtures to create a balanced look that is as functional as it is beautiful. A layout like this would also be a great place to feature a small chandelier or pendant light – just always be sure to mount lighting high enough that no one will bump their head on it.
Semi-flush fixtures are a great complement to vanity lights or sconces, but they are even more of a design asset when they are available in coordinating styles. The combination of a matching semi-flush mount fixture and individual bath bars over each vanity mirror below creates a cohesive lighting scheme that really brings this bathroom design together.
