Bathroom Task Lighting – close-up, Magnifying Mirror Lamps

A magnifying mirror is an invaluable aid for shaving, applying make-up and other personal grooming. You can choose from a separate illuminated mirror which can be freely positioned as it incorporates all-round  lighting(see the AX0815 Niimi Square Wall Lamp with an extended arm) or a non-lit model that can be attached to the main bathroom mirror for a two-in-one solution. Either way, it happens just like the air conditioning in the car, once you have it, you’ll never go back.

Bathroom Mood Lighting – Creative Lighting in the Bathroom

This is where you can have fun and be creative. In the very least you can dim the lights to provide a softer atmosphere, but you can enhance the night time lighting scene significantly with a few extrastrategically positioned lights.

Using LED Lights in the Bathroom

Bathroom LED Lights in a storage niche - the AX0554 Mint LED round lightRecessed LEDs at skirting height are great for providing a wash of light across the floor. One bright idea is to continue the bath panel down to just above the floor and position a strip of LEDs behind it to cast a gentle glow out from behind the panel and make the bath appear to float.

If you are building-in niches for display or storage, fit LED downlights to really bring it to life (see the AX5554 Mint Recessed Glass Bathroom Lights).

Small wall-mounted LED lights can be used to illuminate designated spots in the bathroom and provide light up and down the wall. These can offer good alternative general illumination at night time, when more powerful lamps would be too strong.
