Things To Consider Before Installing Bathroom Lighting

If you would like to have added some lighting installed in your bathroom you are in the right place because in this article I will lead you through the most important things you have to consider before you start thinking about it. 

Getting it installed can be a tough thing if you don’t know the tricks. Getting your space and bathroom like brighter can sometimes be tough if you don’t know how to get it done and the easiest way to do it is to add some light which can lead to a worse situation than it was before. 

There are different ways and tricks how to make your space look brighter, and if you want to know more, you are in the right place, and you should read forward.  If you follow everything I will tell you here, in this article, you have nothing to be afraid of because you will know everything you need to know to make the installation right.


One of the first things you should do is to visit a showroom and check out different kinds of lights before you purchase them. You will be able to see how they look in different spaces and what kind of light they create. Some of them can look great on pictures or online, but when you see them in person, they can be not as flattering as you thought. You can also try taking a picture in front of different kinds of lights to see the difference between them and see which ones are flattering and which ones are not as flattering.

Before you buy anything, not just bathroom lighting, it is smart to try things out and test them to see if they are up to your expectations. It is also smart that you ask yourself what kind of lighting do you need? For what kind of activities do you need perfect lighting for? There are different light for different purposes and if you want your light to be flattering while you are doing your makeup, you will not going to install lights that are not made for that.


Another important thing you should always have in mind is that it is never good to have many of things in the same place and the same goes with lights. If you need some extra lights in your space, don’t go exaggerating and don’t add too much lighting because it will get too crowdie and lights won’t flatter the space at all. Bigger is not always better so you should be very careful with the choice to make your space feel comfortable.

If there will be a lot of lights, you won’t feel comfortable in the space anymore. You can have fewer lights if they are bought smart and if they are placed well because they will give you that kind of light that you need.

If you want your space to be bright buying a lot of lights is not the right way! Your space will get crowded. To not get crowded purchase a mirror with a built-in lamp instead or think about purchasing purpose lighting. Another thing with crowding the space up with light is that you will get a bigger electricity bill because none of that lighting will be efficient at creating the bright space. Having the right lights and in smaller number will be much more friendly to your wallet too.


Lights in the bathroom can be installed for different activities and because of different needs. If you want your morning and evening routine to be as bright as they can be, you should start thinking of purchasing the best lighted makeup mirror because the lighting will be focused on your face and you will be able to have a great vision.

There are different options when it comes to specified task lighting, and one of them is that you can install two vertical fixtures, one on the each side of the mirror and you will be able to have a lot of great lighting every time you will need it.


Another option which is pretty interesting is dramatic lights which are usually installed to create a certain mood and give that special feeling when you are in the space. Dramatic lights are usually used when space is not in the most common color like white. If you are a darker color person and you have your bathroom in darker tones, you need to know that you will need more lights than you would if you had your bathroom painted in white. 

You will need more lights and different kind of lighting. And why is that? Bright colors usually spread the light, and if you have a darker wall, you can notice that they don’t reflect the light in the same way than white walls do.


Like you can see, lighting in bathrooms can sometimes be complicated because if you want to get the best lighting possible, you will need different layers of lights which are all made for a different purpose, and that can cost you plenty of money. If you are not up to renovating the whole bathroom lighting, there are some easier ways too. 

You can choose the easier way to with only replacing the main light with better technology lights or you can simply change the color of the walls to brighter color, and your bathroom will soon be brighter with no special lighting needed.

And here we are, at the end of this article. I hope this few tips and advice helped you to understand the meaning behind all different kinds of lighting and now you know that there are few tricks and hacks to make your bathroom look brighter. If you will follow all the steps, I wrote in this article you would be able to know where you need to be cautious not to make unnecessary mistakes which can cost you some money too.
