6 Bathroom Downlighting Ideas for A Sexier Bathroom
Bathroom downlights have been trendy for a while and are becoming even more fashionable as time goes on. The reason for that is bathroom lighting needs to be functional first and foremost, and most bathrooms have very little natural light.
Using bathroom downlights enables you to concentrate light in certain areas, while adding to the overall ambience of the room. Bare bulbs are ugly and contemporary bathrooms often do not have the scope for light fittings, making LED bulbs a sophisticated and seamless way of illuminating bathrooms. If you have been thinking of giving the lighting on your bathroom a rethink, here are some fashionable UK LED lighting ideas to consider.
1. Use LED Lighting on the Ceiling
UK LED ceiling lights give you a healthy splash of ambient light. To ensure safety is a priority all bathroom lights should be well covered so no water can get in. Similarly, light switches should also be kept well away from the bath and shower.
2. Use Downlighting To Draw Attention To Certain Areas
Bathroom downlights make use of lower wattage bulbs but incorporate more of them. It is discreet, fashionable and affordable and what’s more, there are specially designed down lights available for the bath and shower area, which are reinforced to resist condensation. Downlights can be especially effective when used to illuminate the back wall of a shower and make it look more dramatic.

5. Consider Using Dimmer Switches
