Bathroom Lighting FixturesCarefully choosing bathroom light fixtures is a crucial aspect of a successful remodel. Go beyond simply installing a single light fixture above the sink and allow lighting to both set the mood and give your space a spa-like feel.

Lighting Around the Sink
In many bathroom designs, the room’s lone light fixture is placed on the wall behind the sink, often above a medicine cabinet or mirror. This makes sense on a practical level, since this is the part of the space used for makeup application and so forth.

There’s no reason to limit yourself to this one light in the sink area, though. Here are some additional options for sink area light fixtures that will add charm to the whole room.
  •    Wall sconces on either side of a framed mirror.
  •    A chandelier that hangs in front of a tall vanity mirror which extends up to the ceiling.
  •    Recessed lighting behind a mirror that stands out from the wall for a backlit effect.
  •    One or more chic table lamps placed on the vanity counter.

Illuminating the Tub Area

With the popularity of free-standing soaker tubs, you don’t want to overlook this part of the space when choosing bathroom light fixtures for your remodel. Hanging an eye-catching chandelier over the tub instantly enhances the sense of luxury and glamor within the room. If the word “chandelier” conjures up images of the ring of faux candles that hung above your dining table as a child, keep in mind that today’s possibilities range from stark, industrial looks to gold-plated glam.

Lights in the Shower?
Even the interior of your new glass shower enclosure can benefit from special lighting. Shower heads with LED lights add a glamorous modern touch to both transitional and contemporary bathroom designs. You can spend hundreds on a large rain-inspired spray panel, or as little as ten dollars on a hand-held shower head with LED lighting included. An illuminated shower head adds sparkle and opulence to every shower, making this an ideal choice for a master bath.

Adjustable Brightness
Installing a dimmable switch for one or more bathroom light fixtures is a savvy move for more than one reason. With adjustable lighting you can achieve the soft glow desirable for a relaxing soak before bed or a middle of the night trip to the potty. At the same time, you can turn up the brilliance when you’re waking up with a rejuvenating shower or using the vanity mirror for hairstyling, shaving, etc.
