The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. Not only is it where we spend quite a bit of our time getting ready or having a shower; it becomes part of our daily routine and as a result, deserves only the best in lighting. If you're currently in the process of choosing your bathroom lights or if you're thinking about replacing your old ones for a couple of modernised alternatives, consider the following questions.
What's my budget?
Before you even think about choosing the right light for the bathroom, you need to determine your budget. This will help you to eliminate lighting options that exceed how much you can ideally spend; it may be worth putting a bit aside from the budget just in case you find one you really like that is suitable for your bathroom but just over budget.
Once you have thought about your budget and set a sensible price limit, it's time to get started!
What design am I looking for?
Design isn't just about whether you want a modern or old-fashioned table lamp, although these are two things to consider; it is more about looking at the practicality of the design you want and what you want to achieve with your lighting option (this will also help you to decide what type of lighting option you want to go for). So, the best way to determine these factors is to take measurements in your bathroom or hire a professional to come to your home and inform you of what size lighting would be best.
Going back to what you want to achieve with your chosen type of lighting, this can mean deciding whether you want a warm, settled glow or a bright light to illuminate task areas, as well as how you want your lighting to look i.e. decorative or simple.
What can it offer me?
The final thing to consider is what each type of lighting can offer you and your home. If it ticks all the boxes for you in terms of budget and design, it can offer you a cost-effective alternative that meets your requirements. If you're struggling to identify exactly what the lighting can offer you and your home, it may be worth making a list of everything you want from your lighting choice and using it when you look online. This way, you can compare different lighting options a bit easier and choose the one that's right for you.
