Light Fixtures. Friday , January 26th , 2018 - 10:20:32 AM
The three standard types of lighting--accent, task, and ambient--are all available in a number of contemporary bathroom lighting fixtures, allowing one to easily incorporate all three types of lighting into one unified design.
Ambient light typically comes from an overhead light. Wall sconces can be added to the overall light scheme to add additional ambient lighting and offset the harsh quality of many overhead lights. Accent lighting can be added as well, to draw attention to particular areas of the space or add points of visual interest. Recessed or track lighting are simple, common contemporary bathroom lights that are easy to install and look sharp in any contemporary design. Task lighting also serves a useful function in a bathroom; for instance, angled lamps on the side of mirrors can provide ample light to avoid shadows and poor lighting for personal grooming.
Too much light is also the mistake that many homeowners make in selecting bulbs for their chandelier light fixtures. More is not always better especially when you are trying to create a certain atmosphere with rustic chandeliers. Rule of thumb is to take the room dimensions (12`x12`= 144 square feet) and multiply this total by 1.5. This will give you the total watts necessary for the space (216 watts). If you have 6 bulbs, select the lower of the bulbs available (30 watt as opposed to 50 watt). You can always add matching wall sconces to make up the difference if needed.
