Bathroom Lighting Fixtures

Get all the info you'll need on bathroom lighting fixtures, and prepare to add stylish illumination to your bath space.

Quality light fixtures offer a stylish way to get ample illumination in your bathroom space.

Copious natural light is a dream feature of any bathroom, but the fact is that most bathrooms struggle to let enough daylight light in—which is why bathroom lighting fixtures are such an important aspect of bath space design. If you're remodeling an existing bathroom or installing a brand-new one, you'll want to choose the lighting fixtures that suit your style and provide an efficient, attractive source of light.

A dark and dreary bathroom is no place to wake up to, so you'll want to carefully consider the lighting fixtures for your bath space. First and foremost, you'll need to decide on the style of the fixtures. If your goal is a bathroom with a more traditional look, classic wall sconces are often a good option. Conversely, if you want your bathroom to be a sleek, modern retreat, then elongated, tube-like glass bulb enclosures can create a stylish and contemporary feel.

Whatever you choose, first ensure that the fixture is rated to accommodate a bulb strength that will illuminate your entire bathroom—do a few tests with plug-in lamps and different bulbs before you pull the trigger on any wall lighting choices.

Not all bathroom lighting needs to go on the walls. Ceiling lights are more and more common in bathrooms, and they range from simple, dome-covered bulbs to ornately designed chandeliers.

Additionally, if you have the space, table lamps can be an effective source of bathroom light for sitting areas or, if sconces aren't an option, on a sink console.
