Bathroom Vanity Lighting Ideas

Placing a wall bracket light on either side of the vanity mirror is a popular trend in lighting of late, venture out and be different and place the wall lighting to one side of a vanity mirror to create a visual contrast.

After that 5-star luxurious vibe, then opt for wall brackets with a brass or gold finish to amplify the luxe levels of any vanity area.

If you want your lighting to be understated and either the tiles or the mirror to be the centre of attention, then a subtle vanity light is the perfect option as it does not compete for attention and still performs the job of highlighting the details.

Mirror Lighting Ideas

One of the latest trends in bathroom lighting is an integrated mirror light. The LED light borders the mirror itself without taking up extra wall space, giving the vanity area a clean, minimalist look. These mirror lights are perfect for applying makeup!

Bathroom Pendant Lighting Ideas

Bathrooms are not the first room that comes to mind as somewhere that you would put a pendant light in and if you are thinking of including one, think about its function along with the design.

For example, if you like the look of pendant lights next to the mirror, think about how much light the pendant will give and if it will be enough to see to perform tasks.

An alternative is to place pendant lights near the bath as who does not like soaking in a warm bath at the end of a long day? Create a relaxing spa vibe in your bathroom with bathroom pendant lights that radiate soft glows is a great way to showcase that new pendant.

Just remember that any lighting that is used in the bathroom should not be too close to water sources and follow all electrical regulations.
