When it comes to lighting your bathroom, there are 3 main types of lighting to consider: General Lighting, Task Lighting, and Mood Lighting.
In this article we will talk more about the General Lighting - keep an eye on our blog to see more details about the other types of lighting.
If budgets are tight and you want to keep to a central ceiling solution then you could consider using surface-mounted spotlights (b).
A triple spotlight can be individually directed onto three different points in the room to provide pools of light where you need it and a more interesting lighting scene.
A third alternative is recessed downlights (c). You may only need three or four for a typical size 2 x 2m bathroom.
Position them close to the edges of the room in order to get an attractive scalloped wash down the wall. This approach provides very good general lighting but with a gentler, more sophisticated ambiance.
