4 Ways to Achieve the Perfect Lighting in Your Bathroom

Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the ambiance and functionality of your bathroom. As a trusted, 5-star rated, locally-owned bathroom remodeler serving Missouri and Springfield, MO, GoodLife HR understands the importance of getting this element right. In this blog post, we share four effective strategies to help you achieve the perfect lighting in your bathroom.

1. Layer Your Lighting

Just like in any other room, layered lighting is key in a bathroom. This approach combines several types of lighting to achieve a harmonious and functional space.

Three Types of Lighting to Combine:

  • Ambient Lighting: This is the primary source of light in the room, often coming from ceiling fixtures.
  • Task Lighting: This is focused light where you need it most, such as near the mirror for grooming tasks.
  • Accent Lighting: This light is used to highlight design elements like artwork or architectural features.

2. Pay Attention to the Color Temperature

The color temperature of your light bulbs can greatly impact the look and feel of your bathroom. For a warm and inviting space, consider bulbs with a color temperature of around 3000K.

3. Don’t Forget About Natural Light

Natural light brings a fresh, airy feeling to your bathroom. Consider maximizing it through strategically placed windows or skylights, while still maintaining privacy.

4. Prioritize Lighting Around the Mirror

The mirror is often where tasks like applying makeup or shaving take place. Using sconces on either side of the mirror can help eliminate shadows and provide balanced lighting.

With thoughtful planning and design, achieving the perfect lighting in your bathroom is more than possible. At GoodLife HR, we are committed to helping you create a bathroom that is not only functional, but also inviting and soothing.

"This company is incredible! Had a 6 week timeline- and there wasn’t a day that a full crew wasn’t there working. And it was a big job- all new tile flooring throughout- new large island granite/tile replaced along with appliances and extended my existing cabinets (stain matched perfectly)- new baseboards and painted whole inside of house. Everyone on site was polite and kept mess to a minimum"
