The proper lighting can change the mood and ambiance of any room. Is the lighting in your bathroom lacking, to say the least? If so, it’s time make light of the situation. Below are some tips to keep in mind when choosing lighting for your bathroom.

  • Decorative Lighting – Decorative lighting can act as an interesting piece of decor. An example of this would be a chandelier.

Go Green
A lot of homeowners are jumping on the “go green” bandwagon–and with good reason. It is important to be environmentally conscious in this day and age. Choosing energy efficient lighting is one way to accomplish this goal.

What To Look For In Energy Efficient Light Fixtures

  • Color Temperature – Choose a light bulb that is 2700 – 3000 Kelvin.
  • CRI Rating – Pick a light bulb with a color rending index (CRI) of 80 or higher.
  • Energy Star – When you choose an energy star light bulb, you can rest assured that it lives up to strict energy efficient standards.
