Splashes happen! That’s why it’s important to look for the UL rating, which determines if the fixture is suitable for wet locations, when shopping for bathroom lights.
Bathroom Light Tips
Bathroom Lighting Installation
Measure for Size: Vanity lights should never be wider than the mirror. Aim for a fixture that is ¾ of the width of your mirror.
Frame the Mirror: Mount the lights slightly above eye level so that you can see what you’re doing without the light getting in your eyes. Install the fixtures above or beside the mirror for the best task light.
Finding the Best Bulb
- Try to mimic natural light with white light bulbs or ones with a colour temperature between 2700K and 3000K.
- LED lights can help you save up to 90 percent on your energy bill compared to incandescent bulbs.
- Common light bulb shapes for bathroom lighting include A-line, globe, and candelabra.
