Bathroom Features You Cannot Live Without, The Vanity Lighting and the Mirror

Aug 10, 2008
There are two things that you cannot ignore when you remodel your bathroom. These are mirrors and lighting fixtures. When the mirror reflects images poorly, what will be there to see? Women and men will both appreciate mirrors that can give them true reflections as this will give them more confidence when they step out of the house.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, is my bathroom looking fair at all?"

Bathroom mirrors can create an illusion of a bigger space. For this reason, home owners sometimes place broad mirrors in the living room, even if the room is already big. You can create your own mirror design if you want to release the creative side in you. On the other hand, you can just purchase one from stores. The mirror will not only make your bathroom appear bigger, it will recreate that complete artistic look for your bathroom if your have made the right choice. Don't forget that you need the mirror to function properly when you need it to.

Choose a mirror that will complement the whole look of the bathroom. There is no need for you to fall in love with a beautiful mirror design only to find out that it is absolutely striking in your bathroom, unless you want something that stands out. A low maintenance mirror will save your time on cleaning. These are amongst the things you ought to consider.

Making your own mirror will be fun. Since mirrors are personal things, you can reflect your personality for the décor of your mirror. For a sports person, you can paste the miniature sports stuffs on the frame. Are you a sentimental person? Paste Polaroid's of you and your loved ones for decorations. You can even try that creative side in you by making up effects on the frame of your mirror. You can create vintage or antique look for the mirror.

"Let there be light!" Then I turned on the switch.

Now anyone wouldn't wish to stay in a dark room, right (except for photographers)? Or even in a poorly-lit room when your eyes work doubly hard to see things. Choosing for the lighting fixtures may seem to be mundane tasks but is actually a bit difficult one to do. What's an impressive bathroom if the lighting doesn't do any justification for it?

Below are some simple tips that would help you find the right vanity lighting that will literally and figuratively brighten up your bathroom:

When buying lights, make sure that they are unexposed. Buying unexposed ones will avoid glare that may cause pain to your eyes.

For smaller bathrooms, a soft light will give it the illusion of big. The best thing about soft light is that they are energy saving as well as easy on the eyes. Therefore, small bathrooms can benefit a lot from soft lightings.

When choosing types of lights for the bathroom, you need to look at the type of ceiling that you have. For lower ceilings, vertical or tube lighting will work best. Suspended or chandelier lightings are best for higher ceilings as they will also create a dramatic lighting effect on your bathroom.
