Bathroom lighting fixtures will make design perfectionist go crazy due to the array of styles they can choose from. Whether you’re looking for a classic, vintage, conventional, or modern design, any major home depot is sure to have one. As I said before, it would be a good idea to have fixtures above your mirror, so we look for the ones that have good lighting quality. Good bathroom lighting fixtures would have soft lighting, and an even glow to it. If you’re going for the modern look then a chrome three bulb fixture would be the way to go. Otherwise, if you’re the classic type, go for the bronze two bulb lighting. To add that certain elegance and coziness you get from sconces you can add a one bulb sconce on either side of the mirror. As for the shower you can use recessed lighting to add artistic flair to your design. Now, if you’re going to go for the recessed lighting then I suggest you use a progress eyeball type of fixture. The sheer versatility of this fixture allows you to put it virtually anywhere on your shower area. Don’t be restricted to the center of the shower area ceiling, be creative, and try the wall. Talking about creativity, why not use a flush mount ceiling lighting for a touch of class. The flush mount lighting would go well with the sconces on your mirror. Now remember, don’t be limited to these suggestions. The sheer number of materials bathroom lighting fixtures are made of is just mind-boggling. There are fixtures made of wood, ceramic, bronze, copper, plastic, brass and many more.
Pendant lighting is particularly well-suited to the kitchen. It goes well over a kitchen island, over a dining area, over the sink or the breakfast bar. They are a great way to bring task lighting throughout the kitchen area. In the dining room or the dining area of your kitchen, unless you have a really small dining table, a single pendant lamp will rarely be adequate. What you do is, you hang two or three full-sized pendant lamps or five or six mini-sized ones to cover the entire area of the dining table and the dining room. Experimenting with mixing lights of different suspension lengths can create an interesting effect that can certainly turn out to be more high-tech looking then what a chandelier could achieve.
The focused, targeted light you get from pendant fixtures is highly recommended to be used in working areas such as the home office, a reading corner, above the bathroom sink or the prep counter in the kitchen. Studies have shown how the lighting can impact the way people work, and it has been proven that adequate illumination can increase efficiency and productivity, reduce eyestrain, and help stall feelings of fatigue. You can choose the tone, warmth and wattage of your pendant bulbs to achieve the kind of lighting you’ll be most comfortable to work with.
That’s really all there is to it. If you are adding new junction boxes where none existed before and haven’t done that before, you may want to call in a trusted friend or a professional electrician to help you as you’ll need to figure out the wiring in your home and how to run the wires to the location of the new fixture. As every designer knows, lighting can make or break a room. It not only adds much needed illumination overall, but the right lighting can add drama, creating a cheerful, dramatic space or a cozy, intimate one or bring focus to specific areas of the room, such a piece or artwork or a main architecture fixture, such as a fireplace or a kitchen aisle.
However, when you hang the pendant light over your study table, do you have the same set of expectation? No way - simply dispersing medium amount of light to the entire study room would be a complete wastage. You would rather prefer the light to focus upon your study table and illuminate the table sufficiently such that you do not have to stress your eyes to read. The same can be said about your dining table - you would want the light to focus on the table rather than disperse all around.
