Bringing in more light to your bathroom can be ideal, especially if you have a bathroom with no windows and you want it more illuminated. Whether you are looking to start your day with a brighter room or want better lighting to find whatever you are looking for, making the bathroom brighter is a common goal during a bathroom remodel. Today, we at CA Green Attic & Construction would like to share a few ideas to help you get that brighter bathroom.
You know just how dark these spaces can get if you have a windowless bathroom. Without the hassle of physically making the space larger, many homeowners want to make small, windowless bathrooms feel larger and brighter. One of the most effective ways to bring a lot of light in is installing a skylight.
Consider adding mirrors if you’re looking for a low-maintenance way to bring light into your bathroom. Mirrors, among other reflective surfaces will distribute lights throughout the entire room as the light bounces around the space. Below are a few ideas for incorporating mirrors into a bathroom that you may not have considered.
1) Behind the light fixtures, place the mirrors. This maximizes the light you already have in your bathroom. To amplify the existing light, the mirrors placed behind or near light fixtures can help.
2) Mirrored vanity. A mirrored vanity can help spread light around a space, while still offering you functional storage, if the design appeals to you, though we know this isn’t for everyone.
3) Invest in mirrored tile. Small mirror pieces scattered throughout is a design found in tile. The little pieces of mirror will catch the light across your space.
There are several other designs you can use to maximize the brightness of your bathroom using mirrors. Not only can it brighten the space it can help make the space look larger.
Odds are that you are not thinking about your shower when you are thinking of ways to brighten your bathroom. A space is opened up with a clear glass shower enclosure.
Rather than wasted space, glass shower doors and walls make your shower seem like a part of the space. A glass shower enclosure provides you with a brighter shower experience without a shower curtain or shower wall blocking the light from the rest of the bathroom, as well. Add privacy but still allow light into the shower area using frosted glass that can give you more concealment.
There are several benefits to low-to-the-ground lighting options like vanity underlighting though putting lights near the floor may seem counterintuitive. Helping you navigate the space easily in the dark, these light fixtures can serve as a built-in bathroom nightlight on one hand. The vanity underlighting can also bring light to what would normally be a dark corner in your bathroom during the daylight hour.
Many of us look for ways to get as much light as possible with light therapy boxes and vacations to warm places during these rainy months. Make sure you are doing everything you can to brighten up your everyday living spaces, including the bathroom if the grey weather has you feeling gloomy.
