Lighting a bathroom requires careful planning because installing just one main ceiling lamp is simply not enough to achieve satisfying results. Add more layers to your lighting scheme by using bathroom LED lights. They are very versatile and can be used both to provide good visibility when you’re getting ready before work in the morning and to create a relaxing atmosphere when you’re having a bath after a difficult and stressful day. LED lighting is a simple solution that offers you the freedom to choose between various types of lights depending on your needs – but how can you use them in your bathroom?
Transform your bathroom mirror with LED lights!
One of the most popular and stylish ways to use LED bathroom lights is by adding them to a mirror. And while nowadays it’s not difficult to find mirrors with built-in lighting, you can also give the mirror that’s already on your wall a completely new look by placing LED strips behind it or along the edges of the frame, depending on the effect you want to achieve. It’s a very simple project that you will be able to tackle on your own to easily change the appearance of the entire room!
Illuminate your bathroom cabinet with LED lights
Even the best ceiling lamp cannot reach every corner of your bathroom, and among the most commonly missed spots are cabinets. They can often be dark and make it difficult for you to find the things you’re looking for, especially when you’re in a hurry. Luckily, this problem is another one that bathroom LED lighting can put to rest. Similarly as with popular kitchen cabinet lighting, you can install a LED strip channel in your cabinet or drawer to illuminate it and make its content perfectly visible.
Decorate with lights
You can use LED bathroom ceiling lamps, e.g. spotlights, as ambient lighting, but LED lights can also be used to highlight certain elements of your design or even serve as an interesting decoration on their own. Look for unique wall fixtures, add recessed lights, place LED strips around the ceiling – there are no universal solutions here, be creative and try out your own ideas. And remember that lighting doesn’t always need to have a practical function, adding mood lighting can help you bring more comfort to your living space.
Switch to LED bulbs
Even if you’re not planning on starting a renovation or installing any new lighting fixtures, replacing your old incandescent bulbs with more energy-efficient LED ones is definitely something worth considering. They offer the same amount of light while consuming significantly less energy and can last a lot longer. This means that by investing in LED replacement bulbs, you can save money on future spendings and energy bills.
Choosing the right colour temperature
The term colour temperature is used to describe the warmth of the emitted light and can range from very cool bright light to warmer yellow light. That’s why it’s important to consider the purpose of your lighting before deciding on either option. The colour of the light influences its look and the appearance of everything it falls on, including your skin. That’s why warmer tones are great for ambient lighting if you want your bathroom to appear cosy and welcoming, but for task lighting, e.g. for applying makeup, it’s better to choose cooler light that is similar to daylight.
LED lights not only look attractive, but they are easy-to-use, effective, and generate constant savings for your budget.
