When you draw yourself a bath, you may light some candles, put some salts or essential oils into the water, and relax in the warm tub for a good long while. However, if the light above your head is too bright, and you have no way to dim it, your relaxing bath could be much less enjoyable. At Accent Lighting in Wichita, we can help you find the best light to put above your bathtub, whether that’s a pendant light, recessed lighting, or something more unique.
Hanging Pendant Lights
Depending on the size and configuration of your bathroom, you may have the space to hang a pendant light above the tub. If the ceilings are higher than the standard eight feet, or the tub is in the corner of the room and set into a large surround, a pendant fixture can make perfect sense. A chain and an elegant fixture can also provide the perfect decor accent that your bathroom may be lacking.
Many homeowners don’t think about having a chandelier in the bathroom, as they’re often reserved for the dining room or the entryway. However, interior designers have begun incorporating chandeliers into many spaces, including the bathroom. A mini chandelier can be the perfect fixture above your bathtub, and you can add that touch of class that you’ve been seeking.
When you walk into many modern homes, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll find recessed lighting above the tub or shower. These fixtures provide the ambient light that this area of the bathroom needs, and they’re an important part of any lighting design. When paired with a pendant or a chandelier, recessed lights can be ideal above the bathtub.
All of these fixtures – pendants, chandeliers, and recessed lights – are great options for your tub area, but no light is complete without the proper controls. When you want to take a bath, you want to sit back and relax, and that can be hard to do in a bright bathroom, especially if the space is painted a light, reflective color. By turning off the central light fixture and dimming the light above the bathtub, you can create the tranquil atmosphere that you want while you enjoy a nice, long soak.
Make a Statement
A unique light above your tub can be a great way to make a statement in your bathroom. The ceiling light and vanity lights may be fairly standard, but a bathtub light gives you the chance to have a bit of fun. Multiple globe-shaped lights or different colors can create a one-of-a-kind space that your guests haven’t seen anywhere else. LED and CFL technology have given rise to a number of different bulb styles and shapes, so even if you have exposed light bulbs, the fixture will still be interesting.
