BATHROOM ’LIGHTING’ IDEAS FOR ’SPA’ LIKE RELAXATION
Whether you’re brushing your teeth or doing your kids’ hair, bathroom lighting is key for readiness. If shaving or makeup application are daily rituals for you and your partner, install vanity lights that get rid of shadows. You don’t want to make it all the way to work or the carpool lane before you realize your beard is patchy or your face is orange compared to your neck.
An even mix of side and top lights around your mirror will give just enough of a reflective boost for simple, efficient routines. Looking for luxury bathroom lighting? Read our guide on How to Install Recessed Lighting Above a Shower. These types of specialty bathroom fixtures can also diffuse some low light when you’re settling in for a scented evening with your bath tray.
HALLWAY ’LIGHTING’ FIXTURES TO ’GUIDE’ YOUR PATH
The ultimate host needs to wash their hallway walls with enough light so that no one is stumbling, feeling their way with their hands, or expecting to see the twins from “The Shining.” If you have a wide enough space to use wall lights, consider the thickness of lamp shades so they don’t swallow the brightness of your bulb.
You can also use uplights in your hallway to highlight art. For long passageways, use multiple fixtures so one bulb isn’t responsible for acting as a beacon. Nobody wants to venture down a hallway that has the intensity of an interrogation room or a creepy, buzzing glow that gives them a migraine. Read more of our Best Hallway Lighting Ideas and make sure no one gets left in the dark.
OUTDOOR ’LIGHTING’ IDEAS ’FOR’ A WELL‐LIT WELCOME
Good lighting is simply about living better. Not everything has to look sparkly and gilded, but your home lighting should at least make you feel safe and welcome. This starts with the front porch. Do you need path lighting or a big, bright flush mount to guide visitors? Maybe you just want a pair of sconces for gentle background lighting when you’re rocking back with a glass of wine.
Think about how you use your back patio. Are you roasting smores beneath string lights with your little ones or hosting an evening BBQ lit by subtle post lamps? If you’re trying to decorate your backyard, read our Outdoor Lighting Ideas.
