Types of Bathroom Lighting

When it is time to choose bathroom lighting for your Maryland home, you might not know about the different kinds of lighting options that we offer here at The Light House. Here is a quick rundown of the three types of bathroom lighting we offer and what purpose they serve.

Task Lighting

Task lighting is great bathroom lighting for getting ready in the morning. It is usually two sconces at eye level that will help illuminate your face and hair, which makes it easier to see your reflection in the mirror. Placing this kind of bathroom lighting at eye level will help keep any funny shadows from being cast on your face. Make-up application, styling your hair and other similar tasks will be much easier if you install this kind of bathroom lighting.

Vanity Lighting

Vanity lighting is a great way to use bathroom lighting to illuminate your entire sink area. While it can cast a shadow over you and your reflection, this type of lighting will make it easy to see but it won’t create a harsh glare in your eyes either. Vanity lighting is similar to sconces but usually instead of being two separate pieces, it is two light fixtures that are put together in one piece.

Decorative Lighting

Decorative bathroom lighting comes in a few different forms, but generally this is overhead lighting that will light up your entire bathroom. If you have a large bathroom, you might need to get more than one lighting fixture in order to illuminate the entire space properly. This type of bathroom lighting can add another touch of decoration to the bathroom while also serving a functional purpose as well.
