Why You Need Multiple Bathroom Lighting Options
Your bathroom is a place where dreams can come true, but that’s a lot less likely to happen without adjustable <a title="Bathroom Lighting" href="http://www.atgstores.com/bathroom-lighting_93.html" target="_blank">bathroom lighting</a> that can be dimmed, directed and diffused for various uses.
The light in your bathroom can impact your mood as well as what you see when you look in the mirror. The harsh, white flicker of overhead fluorescent tubes might work wonders in a public restroom, but it’s nice to have something a little warmer – and that you can control more – in the comfort of your own home.
<strong>Bathroom Ceiling Lighting</strong>
A <a title="Bathroom Ceiling Lights" href="http://www.atgstores.com/interiordamp-flush-mount-ceiling-lights_448.html?&option0=optionA=157164,275180|9306~Valu&linkloc=catheader&gpid=376578" target="_blank">bathroom ceiling light</a> is great to have as an overall lighting source even if it’s not dimmable. It’s doing its job if it’s illuminating the entire space and chasing away the shadows. It can wake you up in the morning and help you make sure the kids are scrubbing behind their ears in the evening.
It can also be a way to bathe the space in a comfortable and relaxing light that doesn’t require the same level of intensity as the task lighting around the vanity.
<strong>Overhead Vanity Lighting</strong>
This is a place where the right lighting can actually improve your day. It can make getting ready for work easier and faster, and literally put you in a better light. A few tips:
<em>1. Be wary of downlights</em>: Lights that shine down on you at a severe angle like those that are recessed in vanity tops can cast shadows on your face that may make you misjudge your look.
<em>2. Consider bulbs that offer natural light</em>: Bulbs that replicate natural light can better help give you an idea of how you’re going to look once you step out into the world.
3. <em>Install a dimmer</em>: Regardless of bulb type, having these fixtures on a dimmer will allow you to adjust the brightness, which can be a game-changer on those mornings when you could do with a little less light.

They can be used with or instead of your other lights to great effect as task lighting or decorative low-light illumination.
