When water and electricity are in the mix - there are a whole set of different rules to abide by. It may be the smallest room in the house, but we spend quite a lot of time in the bathroom performing fiddly tasks such as applying makeup or shaving.
Modern bathrooms may use LED lighting to be safe and energy efficient but we also need to consider low voltage, recessed or surface mounted fittings. Various parts of a bathroom, including the shower, have specific lighting requirements. There may also be the need to incorporate an extractor fan for steam and odours.
Semi-flush and flush fittings can illuminate the ceiling as well as the walls and floor, even mirrors and cabinets can be fitted with lights above, beside or even behind the glass!
Have a look at the lighting in your present bathroom. Is it bright enough? Does it create annoying shadows? If you apply cosmetics in your bathroom do the results look as good out in daylight? Do you read in the bath? There is no solution that fits all bathrooms and the available options are endless making it important to get sound advice from your lighting expert here at Lighthouse Tauranga and consider the safety issues involved with bathroom lighting.
