Beautiful bathroom lighting is one of the best ways to add personality and good design to your space. Most bathrooms have little to no furniture and often not much space for accessories. Lighting is an opportunity to dress the space up, define a style, or just make it a place you love to call your own. Today we have a few tips for making your bathroom lighting make a statement.
Create a Focal Point
Bathroom lighting is often limited to a flush mount in the ceiling, and a vanity mirror above the mirror. Adding a fixture above the tub can create a focal point in the room. Lately, we love the minimalist statement a simple pendant makes. It draws the eye and adds interest without feeling overdone for a bathroom.
Mix Materials and Metals
An unexpected material choice in a design can make the entire space more interesting. Bathroom lighting is most often metal and glass. Here, in our Beach Front Project, ceramic pendants on each side of the mirror create a modern organic vibe that we love. Think how different metals, colors, and textures in your lighting can make a statement or blend with the tile, mirror, fixtures, and countertops.
Letting a larger light hang over the height of the mirror creates a layered look that can feel interesting. One single light makes sure that the look is not too busy. In our Family Ties Custom Build, a shaded pendant light overlaps a modern black framed mirror. Below, a simple glass sconce, adds clean-lined simplicity to a heavily textured rattan mirror.
