Lighting is a crucial element to consider when giving your bathroom a facelift. This area of your home often requires different types of light fixtures than the rest of your home. If poorly installed, the humidity level of the space can quickly obliterate flickering bulbs and exposed wiring. In this article, bathroom and deck contractor Maris Home Improvements discusses three main types of lighting that you need to properly illuminate each corner and angle of your bathroom space.
1. Natural Lighting
Natural light brings in the most brightness of any option and is the cheapest form of lighting. If you’re stuck with smaller windows, there are several ways to use natural light properly. One way is by replacing thick cloth curtains with sheer options. This may help increase the amount of sunlight that filters into your bathroom without compromising privacy. However, if you have the wall space to accommodate a larger window, you can always turn to a replacement window services expert for options.
2. Task Lighting
Task lighting provides extra light where you need it. For example, shaving and makeup may be easier with a little recessed light above your bathroom sink. This type of light should skew toward cooler temperatures so that colors appear as close to their true hues as possible.
3. Ambient Lighting
Think of ambient lighting as the overall illumination for your entire bathroom. You can get creative here and do anything, from installing a small chandelier-like light to using mirror lights that reflect off the surface for an interesting effect. Maris Home Improvements’ experienced exterior renovation services can handle any type of installation you need so that your bathroom is properly lit without any shadows or dark spots left over.
