In home remodel projects, the bathroom is often overlooked because the focus is usually the living room, the kitchen or the backyard. But to give your bathroom a new look, you don’t need to spend thousands or even hundreds of dollars on flooring or a new bathtub. Simply changing up the lighting can significantly improve the style and feel of your bathroom. Here are just a few ideas to consider.
Mood lighting can help soften the ambiance and make you feel as if you’re in a luxury hotel. Lighting the edges of the mirror or sink can create an undeniably luxurious and low-key atmosphere — and your guests will never guess how simple the switch really was.
Wall sconces have grown popular in recent years and provide a very flattering light for getting ready in the morning. Sconces come in all sorts of styles and shapes, so shop around for lighting that will match the style of your home.
We’re in the 21st century, which means chandeliers can be placed in the bathroom now — not just the living room. Choose between traditional crystal chandeliers, mid century modern chandeliers, or contemporary chandeliers. Classic chandeliers have crystal prisms with refracted light that hang from the base structure. Contemporary chandeliers shed light directly from the lamps and are much more minimalist. Modern chandeliers strike a balance between contemporary and classic chandeliers.
LEDs are an affordable and energy efficient lighting option for eco-conscious homeowners. You can have an LED strip illuminating the entire bathroom, or you can place concealed LED lights behind a curtain to create a softer effect.
Dimmable fixtures are a great option if you want to enjoy a late night bath and set the mood just right. When shopping for a lighting fixture, just check to make sure it is dimmable. You will also need to install a dimmer switch to adjust the lighting level. Reach out to Blue Apple Electric with any questions you may have or to schedule installation.
