Transform Your Bathroom with Accenting Light

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

The bathroom is the one space of the home where you can enjoy some precious solitude. So when it comes to designing your bathroom, the goal should be to thoughtfully combine elements in order to create an environment that promotes serenity and leaves you feeling re-energized. The right lighting will be an essential ingredient.

Proper task lighting by the mirror will ensure functional, ambient lighting will give the bathroom a nice, comfortable glow. But it’s accent lighting that can add an artful appeal to transform your bathroom into a truly inspiring space. This special type of decorative lighting can be used to direct attention to beautiful elements or works of art.

For the powder room of this chic downtown condo, I used a sculptural sconce fixture to add visual sparkle. I’m so pleased with the way it enlivens the space with interest and energy. The shadows it casts on the wall create a subtle pattern that becomes a part of the design. And with such a stunning light effect, it makes for a fabulous focal point.

Sleek contemporary sconces go beyond function to offer both uplighting and downlighting, bringing this transitional style bathroom to life. The wattage brings the perfect amount of task lighting while illuminating the bathroom in a way that highlights all of the gorgeous gold details.

During the day, this contemporary bathroom is overflowing with natural light. A crisp, clean backdrop works  to uplift and invigorate. But at night, it becomes a luxurious and relaxing refuge. Minimalist sconces set the mood with an alluring glow, recessed lighting adds task lighting in the shower and allows the decorative tile to sparkle.

Lighting may be just one piece of the design puzzle, but it can have an incredibly significant impact. The right lighting design can make or break how a space looks, feels and functions. You can find additional design inspiration and see more of my work by browsing through the Daher Interior Design online portfolio. What are some of your favorite fixtures and techniques for adding layers of accent lighting in the bathroom?
