Rejuvinate your bathroom by switching up your lighting

Do you feel as if your bathroom needs a makeover?

Is it looking a bit old and outdated?

A quick solution to try is getting a new bathroom ceiling light installed. Having a new light might sound simplistic, but you’d be surprised by how much brighter and fresher a feel it could give off!

In today’s market there are heaps of options when it comes to bathroom lighting design and effect. The main thing to remember is you want your light to be “functional”. By this we mean it needs to give you lighting where you need it, at the exact brightness you want. Electrician To The Rescue can install any bathroom lighting, including wall lights, ceiling lights, combined ceiling fan/heating/lighting, or adjustable spot lighting. If you shave or apply makeup you need the right lighting to be able to see what you’re doing, you don’t want to be left in the dark.

Another thing to consider are dimmer switches. All our electricians can install dimmer switches to your existing bathroom lighting or install the correct lighting fixtures if they are don’t have dimmable capabilities. If you like long extravagant soaks in the bath, a dimmer switch allows you to turn the brightness of the lights down and create a relaxed atmosphere.

There’s a huge range of lighting fixtures made for bathrooms, from recessed spotlights to chandeliers, allowing you to be as subtle or as bold as you like. A dressy pendant ceiling light in a small or very bare bathroom will certainly make a statement!

Variable direction lighting is also a great way to get light where you need it, such as over the shower or framing the mirror.

Electrician To The Rescue have award winning electricians with all the skills needed to complete your bathroom lighting “make over”. Never install lighting yourself, and avoid dodgy tradies who are unskilled and unlicensed.

Lighting Ideas for your bathroom

In the past, bathrooms were just somewhere to wash and clean our teeth, it certainly wasn’t a room you would consider “relaxing” in. Today though, things have changedthanks to luxurious baths, heated flooring, rain-head showers and home beauty treatments. The humble bathroom has become so much more than what it once was. So, don’t let some harsh lighting ruin the ambience.

Some of our ideas to improve the feel of your home’s bathroom:

Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting gives you light where you need it, you won’t have any more of those “dark spaces” a single overhead light creates. As a bonus, these lights are super versatile in their placement – you can put them above the hand basin, directly over the shower, and even within the cabinetry.

Dimmer Switches

Dimmer switches mean you can have different lighting at different times, bright when you need it, or subdued and relaxed when you want it.

L.E.D Lighting

LED lights placed under cabinetry and mirrors can create a smooth and stylish looking bathroom, and you can still have bright overhead lights for applying makeup or shaving when you need more practical lighting.

Lit Up Recessed Shelving

Recessed shelves in a bathroom are often hidden in the shadows. But with a touch of soft recessed lighting you can lift the appearance of your bathroom and show off the objects you have, placed on display.
