Bathroom lighting ideas

If the bathroom is in need of some extra lighting there are lots of options for you to create your perfect bright and breezy bathroom. If you plan carefully you can turn your dark and dingy bathroom into a luxurious paradise in no time. It is important to note that conventional lighting should never be used in a bathroom. Even if you have found a brilliant stylish light that would look great in your bathroom, if it wasn’t intended for bathroom use it could prove fatal to household members if installed in a bathroom.

Use low voltage spotlights or down lighters on your ceiling. These work great with glass and water which makes them perfect for bathroom lighting. You can also fit these with a dimmer placed just outside the bathroom so you can control the intensity of the lighting. A great alternative is to use a motion sensor led light for that bathroom too; with these there is no need to wake the rest of the house at night with bright lights or the bathroom fan. These automatically detect motion up to 10 feet and switch off after 30 seconds after last motion detection. Powered by 4 AA alkaline batteries with an average battery life of one year.

Choosing the right tap or mixer

Choosing the right taps and mixers for your bathroom can really make a difference but it can get a little confusing as there is such a huge choice of styles, types, finishes, shapes and sizes. Some of the things to consider when looking through our web pages would include the style or finish of other components in your bathroom. Does your bathroom basin have one, two or even three tap holes? For the bath does this require wall mounted taps and if you want a shower a bath mixer could be the answer for you?

The type of heating system that is present in your property can also have an effect on the choices available to you. Many continental bathroom taps are designed to work with high pressure heating systems, but a large proportion of UK heating systems operate using low pressure hot water. By looking through the section on taps and mixers, you will see a complete range all at unbeatable prices.
