There are some smart lighting ideas that would work as an illusion, thereby, making your small bathroom look bigger. LED lights have revolutionized lighting technology. Here are a few smart ideas that can help choose the perfect LED light and fixtures for a small bathroom.
Installing Flush Mount Ceiling Lights
While selecting lights for your small or average sized bathroom, remember, large and bright ceiling lights might not be the best choice. While this seems like the best option to light up the entire bathroom, getting a bright ceiling light can actually make your bathroom look smaller. A flush mount ceiling light is a much better alternative and will allow your bathroom to look bigger and brightly illuminated.
A warm and diffused light reduces the silhouette and thus makes your bathroom look bigger and brighter. It will also go well with other lighting options that we will be taking a look at in our nest points.
Using Mirror Lights
A major issue with small bathrooms is finding enough space to store the essentials and make it easier to use the mirror without casting any shadow over the face. LED mirror lights are a perfect choice. However, if you are looking for vanity lights, that might not be such a great idea as they will cast unwanted shadows. Also, the space available around the mirrors isn’t too much and thus needs better management. Lighted mirrors are much better alternatives.
Mirrors with small LED bulbs mounted on the frame is the best option, since it saves light and gives the bathroom a much larger feel. Moreover, there are cabinets with mirrors attached to the front and light fixed around the mirror. This is a great choice for those who are trying to make the best out of the small space available. Moreover, mirror and cabinet combined into one will save space and make your bathroom look bigger.
Lighting Up the Areas Near Bathroom Cabinets
The lesser, the shadow in your bathroom, the larger will be the look. The common spaces that have shadows include the areas underneath the cabinets. Using small and warm coloured LED light fixtures will illuminate the areas underneath the cabinet. In fact, this would be one of the smartest ways to make your bathroom look bigger and brighter. Also note that, there are various types of LED fixtures available for this purpose.
Right Lights Can Make Your Bathroom Bright
There are various types of lights available for bathrooms. Choosing the right one will allow you to make it look perfect and beautiful.
