The bathroom is often a utilitarian room that serves a number of specific functions. However, this shouldn’t always be the case. What’s stopping you from turning your bathroom into a relaxing space where you can unwind and rest? While there are many ways to do this, changing the lighting in your bathroom is an effective way of adding an atmosphere conducive to rest and relaxation. In you next bathroom remodeling project, feel free to play around with your lighting fixtures to enhance your bathroom.
For most people, ceiling lighting is often enough to light up their bathrooms. Other fixtures such as wall sconces end up as afterthoughts that are added after every other aspect of bathroom remodeling has been completed. To change the ambiance of your bathroom, you should add other accent lighting fixtures such as vanity lights, under cabinet lights, and wall lighting fixtures. This is a great way of adding texture and drama to any room.
For mood lighting, you should try using high output low voltage xenon bulbs in your fixtures. This type of bulb is recommended for vanity lights and other accent fixtures. While they provide ample illumination, they will not have a drastic effect on your electricity bill. In addition to this, xenon bulbs give off a pleasing spectrum of light that can help you relax.
To make your bathroom even more relaxing, you can also add candles and candle holders. You don’t have to use them every time you bathe. Simply light them up when you want to take a nice, long and relaxing dip in the tub. However, pay close attention to where you will position them. Make sure that they do not come in contact with flammable materials. This is a great way of improving atmosphere without adding to the costs for your bathroom remodeling project.
