Bathrooms should either be a place that can invigorate you in the morning and help relax you at night. While natural sunlight is best for the morning, lighting can allow you to set a calming mood in the evening. Avoid ceiling lights if possible and instead aim for floor or side lighting that is a warming colour. By having your lighting come from the floor you give the room a grounded feeling and avoiding shining a strong light in your eyes or on your body. If possible, choosing lights that can be set to change colour slowly can also have a very soothing effect that works nicely while you soak for an hour in the bath.
After you have decided on the particular style that will match the overall decor of the place you wish to install wall lighting, you will want to consider how many lights each fixture will support. You can start at one light per fixture and work your way up from there.
The family area may be somewhere fun, sophisticated or old-fashioned style. Focus on what you want to use the area for, what time of day you are most likely to use it, if there will be lots of people or just a few. This is all important before you buy furniture or make any drastic changes. If it is a large area, you may be considering outdoor flood lighting. It is a very effective way to light a big space. Usually this area will need to be durable and easy to use it may be the area that gets used the most.
The kids will want to play and enjoy their time in an area that suits their activities. There may be dress ups, colouring, drawing, building things, videos and reading, all in the same area. Consider what sort of lighting you need in that area and if you need lighting at all, especially if the area is usually being used during the day. Most area, despite being used in the day time will need some sort of lighting, and you may want special features such as dimmer switches or spot lights. Safety is obviously an important factor when it comes to planning the kids area. Ensure a qualified electrician fits all the lights and that no loose wires are present.
Your final decision on what style of wall lighting to choose should be a combination of 2 to 3 of the elements you have written down in your notes. Your wall lighting should be constructed with some of the elements of the furniture in the room. This could be wood, metal, glass, plastic and fabric (Some wall lighting has lamp shades).
