New LED Lighting Idea For Your Bathroom

The bathroom is undergoing a revolution. Once, just seen as a place to carry out the necessary functions, now it is a place to actively hang out in.

For this reason, we are seeing more and more inspired modern lighting arrangements bathroom fitting LED spots, badkamer spotjes and badkamer spots led dimbaar which are of course bathroom spots which are also LED and dimmable.

However, there is a bit more to achieving an ambience in the bathroom than simply sticking in a generic dimmer switch and hoping for the best!

It has to be done properly

You might not know this, but where you are able to put your lights – badkamer LED spots or otherwise, depends on exactly which part of the bathroom you are planning on putting them.

Different lighting is utilized in different “zones” of the bathroom.

So, what you can put around the outer edges of the room, is not the same as the kind of lighting that needs to be used around the bathtub, for example.

These are the kinds of things that an electrician should know about, which is why it is even more advisable to have one on board in your bathroom renovation project, than other rooms – although we think an electrician should be consulted for any rewiring or changing of lights, wherever in the house they are.

Next, stop thinking about the bathroom “light”. Unless your room is the size of a shoe box (and we know some are) then it will be lighting that is required.

Actually, even in the smallest of rooms, there is still room for more than one mode of lighting.

LIGHT YOUR MIRROR

For example, even the smallest bathroom can benefit from a lighted mirror.

This gives you the extra focus that you need to be able to shave by, clean your teeth and apply makeup.

Even the most well lit bathroom can benefit from a bit of extra lighting around the mirror!

And, of course, this lighting need not be merely functional – it can be fun as well.

Fairy lights, LEDs on strips, coloured lights – these are all great ways to jazz up the basic lighting around you mirror and usually, by default, the sink.

ENHANCE YOUR BATH

Bathroom spots lighting are becoming more and more popular as a way to – gently – shine a light on your deep soak.

They are also generally far more bath and water resilient than CFLs and other, more traditional types of lighting. This makes them the ideal choice for the bathroom.

And LEDs can be used at the bottom of the bath, around edgings – anywhere you want to create an enhanced sense of mood.

Candles make a waxy mess all over your surfaces, as well as present a fire hazard, sadly. So no matter how pretty they look, it may be best to leave them unlit and rely on the atmospheric use of badkamer spots LED dimbaar or dimmable bathroom spotlights. As long as they have been properly installed in the correct zone, they should be safer! And of course, they won’t blow out!

JAZZ UP YOUR LOO!

Your poor old toilet hasn’t changed much over the years. It is probably feeling a little bit neglected in all honesty.

This can be rectified by fitting some interior LED lights to the toilet – yes – the toilet!

These are special lights, which are specifically designed for your loo – so please don’t go shoving anything down there!

Some multi coloured LED loo lights can add the extra wow factor to your smallest room.

They are also a helpful guide in the night, for those three am in the morning toilet visits, where you might not always bother turning the light on. Hint – they help gentlemen “hit the spot” better in the dark!

First off, you need to consult an electrician before undertaking any major lighting changes in your bathroom.

Naturally, water and electricity do not mix well and this needs to be heeded. We think it would probably be best if you let a qualified electrician actually do the work – even if you are more than capable of wiring a dimmer switch in for the dimbare led spots inbouw badkamer.
