You might not realize it, but we spend a lot of time in the bathroom. In addition to bathing, we use the bathroom to get ready in the morning and to prepare for bed every night. If you’re one of those people who has a luxury bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a sound system so you can enjoy a long soak, you want to make sure that the lighting in your bathroom is conducive to relaxation. If you spend a lot of time in the morning getting ready you want to make sure that you’re getting the best light in which to put on makeup or shave.
The lighting pros at Lincoln Lighting Center are here to make sure that your bathroom lighting is everything you want it to be. When you shop with us, you’re benefiting from years of experience as well as the ability to perfectly mimic your existing decor with new lights. You won’t find a lighting store more excited to help you realize the bathroom lighting of your dreams than Lincoln’s own Lincoln Lighting Center!
One of the most important areas in any bathroom is the mirror. We spend a lot of time using the mirror to make sure we don’t miss any spots while shaving and to keep our makeup even. It helps us make sure we’re brushing all the way to the back, and it allows us to stop and appreciate just how good looking we are. In order for us to look great we need appropriate light. In addition to the traditional center of the room lighting, task lighting, in the form of sconces mounted on either side of the mirror or a bar of lights at the top of the mirror will give you the illumination that you need to see your face free of shadows.
Ambient lighting will be very important if you like to spend a lot of time relaxing in the tub. The proper ambient lighting will allow you to see clearly enough to read and to get safely in and out of the bath but without giving you a headache. There a many ways to accomplish great ambient lighting in a bathroom, the easiest of which is the center of the room light. If you have a smaller powder room, you probably won’t need much more than this (though adding a dimmer is never a bad idea). But if you have a larger bathtub or a flower with a less-than-translucent door, you might want to have some lights installed above the tub itself. Always use professional electricians when you’re wiring things in the bathroom. Water and electricity aren’t a good combination.
As you can see, there are so many options to provide your bathroom with the lighting that you want that it can be a little overwhelming. If you need help, give us a call at Lincoln Lighting Center or stop by the showroom. We can help you find what you want that matches your style and your lighting needs.
