Choosing the right light for your bathroom

Creating the right mood for your bathroom with lighting isn’t easy. Too bright and it will look harsh, too dim and you’re leaving the house with incredibly unflattering make-up on.

Finding the right balance makes it easier to attend to your personal needs and as long as you know the basics, the rest should come easy.

Rule 1: Know the shape and size of your bathroom

Small toilets might only need one overhead light, while larger ones could do with extra vanity lights over the sink.

Rule 2:  Decide where you need light the most

If you have natural light coming in from the windows, it might be easier to determine where to install lights.

Rule 3: Consider a dimmer switch

Summer evenings might call for less lightening. With a dimmer switch, you can adjust the lighting in your toilet depending on the month, season and your mood.
