The status of bathrooms has changed over time and it is no longer a small white space designed for a quick wash. We are all spending more time in the bathroom and correspondingly more money on achieving a quality finish. Most bathrooms are built to last ten to twenty years, so it's well-worth investing the same degree of planning and quality creating the perfect mood by using various levels of light, even small rooms will benefit from a dimmer switch. Never underestimate how depressing a poor lighting scheme can be.
Conversely, get it right and you bring the room to life and make it an enriching, positive space. We have a large range of bathroom lighting in various styles from the most traditional styles to modern and ultra modern. All of our bathroom lights are safe to use near water and have an international protection rating that tells you which zone the fitting is suitable to, for example, an IP44 rated fitting can be used above or to the sides of your mirror over the sink, or to the sides and above the bath. See our bathroom lighting guide for help and advice on bathroom zones.
The Basin mirror in the bathroom is the equivalent of the desk in the office, It's the hub of operations, where most of the 'work' takes place. There are several options, but most effective is a solution that illuminates both sides of the face to ensure an even, flattering glow with no shadows. You can achieve this with either an illuminated mirror or wall lights positioned either side of the mirror. Every basin needs a mirror, so illuminated mirrors provide a two in one solution.
Some also incorporate shaver sockets. Choose from mirrors with integrated horizontal or vertical lighting. Some clever products also provide ambient lighting by giving a gentle wash of light behind the mirror which illuminates the wall and makes it appear to float. Perfect for a modern styled home. In addition, a magnifying mirror is an invaluable aid for shaving, applying make-up and other personal grooming. Choose from a separate illuminated mirror which can be freely positioned as it incorporates all-around lighting or a non-lit model that can be attached to the main bathroom mirror for another two in one solution.
