Bathroom lighting is an integral part of your daily life. Some of the most peaceful, relaxing moments of the day (and sometimes the most hurried moments of the day too!) are spent in the illumination of vanity fixtures and other bathroom lights. This intimate space is the most overlooked room in the house when it comes to light fixtures. For this reason, rest room lights should be both soft and bright, so that tasks like shaving and applying makeup are simple and easy—no squinting or being blinded by harsh light, which is what you will have to do if you don't have the right bathroom vanity lighting.
Vanity lighting can be incorporated into any home décor. So many styles are available to the interior decorator that the possibilities are endless. For a more playful vibe, consider installing tropical fixtures, crystal, shell, rustic lights from the best manufacturers. For a more traditional style, investigate the vanity light combinations of Craftsman, Asian, alabaster, or Tiffany. Or for a more modern motif, you can create a refined industrial ambiance when you buy vanity lights such as stone, wrought iron, or more geometric contemporary lights. And if you want a postmodern masterpiece for your o'l W.C., mix and match styles to create transitional bathroom installation art. It's all up to you when it comes to creating the best light fixture combination for your home!
It's also important to note that while you're scrubbing in the tub relaxing away the day’s cares, placing light fixtures and contemporary lighting at varying levels can create calm and intimacy in your rest room. Simply installing one extremely bright ceiling light overhead is going to create shadows and an ominous, harsh environment that is not there when you use the proper light fixtures. Bathroom illumination design with inexpensive vanity lighting and other bathroom lighting fixtures should also take mirrors into account. Using a balanced combination of mirrors and lights will give the room more space. Placing adjustable wall sconces
on either side of your mirror or sink will create fewer shadows and a softer overall mood without diminishing the quality or freshness of your bathroom lighting and vanity light solutions.
Another creative idea that will give your restroom flair is by installing hanging bath lighting, such as bathroom pendant lights
strategically placed over areas where you need the most visibility for everyday tasks. Vanity lighting pendants should be placed 75 to 80 inches above the floor (roughly a bit higher than the height of the average person) and they should contain at least 150 watts — ideally spread over an area about 24 inches wide, so that the light will wash evenly over your face. If you choose to place vanity lights on either side of the mirror, allow for a space between these discount vanity lights of about 40 inches, so that there is not too much light blinding you whenever you brush your teeth or delicately apply mascara under the glow of your vanity lights. And for the shower or toilet area, a secondary source of light is recommended. Recessed bathroom lighting is a great idea to give that personal space a subtle illumination without the somewhat more typical glare of traditional vanity lighting; but, there are many other lights that you should also consider, so do not forget to check out all your options and solutions.
Finally, consider your finish and bulb options, of which there are literally hundreds of possibilities for vanity light fixtures. Old fashioned styles often employ the use of copper, art glass, brass, and bronze in its light fixtures. The style of contemporary bathroom lighting seems to incorporate polished chrome, brushed nickel, clear glass, or matte black and grey tones into the design of these inexpensive vanity light fixtures. In terms of light quality and energy efficiency, fluorescent, halogen, and LED lights will last longer and save electricity over the long term without losing the softness and charm of the more traditional incandescent lights found in normal vanity light fixtures. So you can “go green” and save “green”, without sacrificing style in your bathroom light fixtures if you choose the best vanity lights that are energy efficient from our bathroom light sale.
