Bathroom task lighting often gets short shrift or is completely ignored. I’m reminded of how little attention is given to this area almost every time we stay at a hotel or in someone’s home. Rarely is the bathroom mirror lit well enough to see the detail we all need at various times. The same holds true inside a shower, in the commode area or below the sink where essentials are stored. Under sink storage, however, is deftly solved by the lighted Robern Vanity Drawers in one of my past posts.
Mirrors with integral lighting tend to be modern and streamlined. The frame on this one, in this all-white Danish architect’s bath, is super sleek but a lighted frame like that lets you see well when applying makeup, giving yourself a mini-facial, flossing teeth, or shaving because your head is not blocking overhead lights.
Commodes are often sometimes in dark areas though this one is not. The photo speaks for itself.
In a Florida powder, room designer Pepe Calderin provides a brilliant lighting blueprint overhead for general illumination plus lighting along the top and bottom of the long mirror. Additionally, there are lavishly puck-lighteded stainless steel shelves used for displaying crystal figurines. No problem with seeing anything in this space! Covering the ceiling with mirror also magnifies the entire effect in a unique way.
