A Guide to Choosing Bathroom Light Fixtures, Lexington-Fayette Northeast, Kentucky

Bathrooms offer more opportunities for lighting than they might seem. While it’s true these rooms are usually small, they’re also the places where it’s most key to have perfect lighting to see yourself in the mirror, read medication labels, and have a cohesive aesthetic. Here’s a closer look at how you can choose the right light fixtures for your space. 

How to Select Lighting for Your Bathroom 

Consider Essentials

For stylish lighting features that offer soft, clean light, choose sconces. Buy them in a pair and place one a few inches from either side of your mirror for a symmetric look. Positioning the sconces in this fashion will also give you optimally balanced lighting for your vanity. Sconces are also suitable to place in other areas. For your shower or tub, recessed lighting rated for damp locations is best. Small recessed lights or subtle flush mounts also provide overall illumination.

Opt for Pendants

If there’s no room in your configuration for sconces, choose hanging pendant lamps instead. These elegant light fixtures hang from the ceiling and create gentle pools of light perfect for illuminating your mirror or another focal point of your bathroom. They come in a variety of styles, so no matter whether your bathroom design is contemporary or old-world, you’ll find one to suit your taste. 

Think Experimentation

Even so, you don’t have to shy away from statement lighting pieces, especially if you have a large bathroom. Chandeliers add a touch of refinement to any space, for example. If you’re going for a more rustic look, incorporate elements that are traditionally used outdoors, such as barn-style lighting or a lantern pendant.
