Bathroom Lighting Mistakes to Avoid

A residential bathroom with good lighting.

Your bathroom is probably one of the most used rooms in your home, and it’s most likely the first room you go into when you wake up in the morning. Since bathrooms are so often used, most homeowners want theirs to be comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. However, bathroom lighting can be tricky. You want to make sure you have enough light, but you don't want it to be too bright. You also need to consider the type of lightbulb you are using and whether or not you are using a dimmer switch. In this blog post, Zar Electric will discuss some of the most common bathroom lighting mistakes and how to avoid them.

Not Using Dimmers

One of the most common mistakes people make when lighting their bathroom is not using dimmers. Dimmers are a great way to control the amount of light in your space. They can help you create a softer, more relaxing ambiance in your bathroom. They can also help control the brightness in your bathroom if the full amount of light is too much for your eyes when you first wake up in the morning. If you don't have dimmers installed, we recommend doing so.

Not Using LED Lights

Another mistake people make is not using LED lights. LED lights are more energy-efficient and last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. They also emit less heat, which can be beneficial in a bathroom where steam is present. If you're not using LED lights, we recommend switching to them.

Not Using Enough Light

Many people make the mistake of not using enough light in their bathroom. This can result in a space that feels dark and uninviting. It can also be difficult when you are doing things that are part of your daily routine such as brushing your teeth, doing your skincare, or putting on makeup. When choosing your bathroom lighting, make sure to select fixtures that provide ample light. You may also want to consider adding a skylight or another type of natural light source to help brighten up the space.

These are just a few of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to bathroom lighting. By avoiding these mistakes, you can create a beautiful and inviting space that is well-lit, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. A simple change in lighting can make all the difference!
