Bathroom Lighting Tips: In a bathroom, lighting serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. Start with adequate overhead lighting to illuminate the entire space evenly, such as recessed ceiling lights or a central fixture. For task lighting around the vanity area, consider installing sconces on either side of the mirror to minimize shadows and provide optimal illumination for grooming tasks. Ensure the lighting fixtures are rated for damp or wet locations to withstand the bathroom’s moisture levels.

Additionally, incorporate accent lighting, such as LED strips under cabinets or around mirrors, to add ambiance and highlight architectural features.

Finally, consider installing dimmer switches to adjust the lighting intensity for different tasks and moods, providing flexibility and enhancing the overall comfort and functionality of the bathroom.


Look at tasks associated with different areas of your bathroom and assess whether you currently have enough light for activities like bathing, applying makeup and selecting clothes. It may be necessary to add direct lighting in those areas for increased visibility.

Large Mirror

Fixtures equipped with standard incandescent, xenon, or halogen bulbs behind glass globes provide the most flattering light. If you opt for more energy-efficient fluorescents, choose warm white tones. They come closest to the color of incandescent.

Small Mirror

For small mirrors, decorative wall brackets on each side will illuminate both sides of your face evenly. You can also mount a wall bracket across the top of the mirror. A combination of the two will give you the most desirable light possible.
