Bathroom Lighting: See Yourself in a Good Light.

With today's bathrooms becoming both personal style statements and soothing retreats, bathroom lighting is coming into its own as an essential design element to give you the ambiance you desire. Bathroom exhaust fans, items that we don't really think that much about when we're in the midst of an exciting remodel, protect your home by eliminating moisture that can cause serious damage over time. Our slide show displays just a few of the hundreds of vanity lights, fan-light combos, sconces, recessed lighting, ceiling lights, chandeliers and other beautiful products that our showrooms offer for putting yourself and your guests in the very best light.

Now Trending in Bathroom Lighting...

The bathroom-as-personal-retreat phenomenon has sparked exciting design trends in bathroom lighting. Here are just a few:

Bathroom chandeliers: You don't have to be a movie star to feel like one in the tub or shower! The bathroom chandelier is one of the industry's strongest recent trends, and it's not showing any signs of slowing. You don't need a huge bathroom to glam it up, either; as long as your ceiling is high enough, many chandeliers can look fabulous in an everyday bath. (Talk to your showroom consultant to be sure the chandelier you choose is rated for bathroom use.)

Vanity light placement: In place of the traditional "Broadway strip" of round bulbs over a mirror or medicine cabinet, designers and savvy homeowners now favor using fixtures with individual bulbs, which can be aimed up or down. Choose one or more fixtures with 2, 3 or 4 bulbs apiece, depending on the width of the sink area you are lighting. A great look is the use of three lighting fixtures, two on each side and one in the middle of two mirrors or cabinets. (Design tip: Installing fixtures beside your mirrors rather than above also minimize shadows on your face.)

Set the mood: While proper task lighting will always be important over your vanity, more and more homeowners are opting to augment standard bathroom lighting with "mood-setting" ambient lights such as wall sconces. Even a small powder room can benefit from an additional fixture. Install your ambient lights on dimmers for even more flexibility: turn them bright for morning work prep and low for your nighttime soak.

Light up for safety: Lots of new lighting options add to both safety and nighttime convenience, such as lighting fixtures equipped with optional night light features, "toekick" lighting (a strip installed along the base of cabinets or vanity), and medicine cabinets with integrated lighting.

Speaking of safety… fixtures that will be used close to a water source such as a tub or shower must be rated for "wet" usage, but requirements vary by town. In addition to helping you choose the perfect style, finish, and functionality for your home and budget, your Frank Webb Home consultant can help you purchase fixtures that meet your local building code requirements and are properly rated for the usage you are planning.
