Bathroom Lighting: Unwind and Relax

Bathroom Lighting

The bathroom is generally expected and encouraged to be a space where we can relax, unwind and step away from the day-to-day. Our private space can become a luxurious sanctuary. One of the important factors to consider when having a new bathroom designed and installed is high quality and proper lighting.

Ample overhead and task lighting is key but other various modes of lighting can create a more tranquil and relaxed mood when entering the bathroom.

Task Lighting is Essential

Proper high-quality task lighting is important and it serves a specific purpose. Placing a pair of sconces at eye level can provide shadowless lighting. This ensures that those who use the bathroom have proper lighting for their day-to-day including applying their makeup, shaving, brushing their teeth etc. Spotlights in the ceiling also add quality lighting.

Illuminated mirrors

Illuminated mirrors adds a further light source. You could consider variable backlighting which can switch from a warm to cool white light that can parallel your mood.

Bath lights

You could consider spotlights fitted on the inside of the bath – adding to the spa-theme of your bathroom. Lights beneath the water creates a relaxing ambience with soft dim lighting that can help you unwind.

LED Floor Lights

Lighting the bathroom from the floor up offers a impactful level of light. LED floor lighting also adds a contemporary, stylish and unique personality to your bathroom.

Recessed Lighting

Taking up very little space and a spacious atmosphere to the room. It creates focus areas to various parts of your bathroom.

Chandelier

Chandeliers come in different shapes and sizes. Choosing the right style will bring all elements of your bathroom together and adds that added luxurious feeling to finalise your bathroom. It certainly makes a statement!

Bathroom Basin Jargon Buster – A Quick Overview

Important Things to Consider when Choosing a New Basin

A new bathroom means a new basin. Bathroom sinks or basins are available in an array of sizes and styles ranging from the modern minimalist to the traditional or vintage style to suit any home. The basin is the main focal point of a bathroom so it’s definitely worth taking a considerable amount of time in browsing and considering various types, designs and styles.

A common misconception that clients with small bathrooms initially note is that the limited bathroom space means limitations in style and choice. But this is far from reality!

Ergonomics and practicality are main elements of bathroom design and this means that you never have to settle for something bland and basic. Regardless of the type of basin you ultimately choose, the variety of styles and shapes ranges from the most cutting edge in modern contemporary design to the most luxurious vintage aesthetics.

If you‘re browsing for basin inspiration and not quite sure where to start, our snapshot bathroom basin guide, simplifying basin jargon, will help you choose the perfect one. Here’s an overview of the types of basins available within the market.

Bathroom Basin Jargon Buster – A Quick Overview

Cloakroom Basin

Recommended for toilets, guest bathrooms or bathrooms short on space, cloakroom basins feature compact dimensions. Available in modern and tradition styles – its design ensures efficient use of space whilst not compromising style.

Inset Basin

Fitter into a worktop, inset basins provides a space saving solution and keeps the basin compact within the unit. The inset basis usually is combined with drawers or a cupboard underneath. It also hides the pipework with a tidy finish.


Countertop Basin

Countertop basins are designed to be fitted onto a worktop. Perfect for adding chic, contemporary and luxurious style to any bathroom or ensuite. They are available in a range of styles and shapes that ensure that you’re making a statement. The countertops work best if there is a decent amount of surface area around the basin and cabinetry. Countertop basins are often paired with tall taps or wall mounted basis taps to enhance the look.

Semi-recessed Basin

Semi-recessed basins are partly sunk into a vanity unit or worktop. The pipework is hidden away and the front or rim of the basin is prominently on show. This creates a tidy appearance

Semi-recessed basins are designed to fit into a vanity cabinet or a run of bathroom furniture with a worktop. The worktop or vanity unit top is cut out to take the back of the basin and the front of the basin overhangs the cabinet fascia creating a tidy appearance. The basin becomes the seamless part of the furniture.


Full Pedestal

Full pedestal basins are ultimately a classic and are a most popular choice. Available in the range of styles, both tradition and contemporary, full pedestal basins provides a tidy and sleek finish. Although the basis may appear to be fully supported entirely by the pedestal, it’s actually mounted on the wall. The pedestal also works in concealing the pipe work.

Semi Pedestal

Recommended for small bathrooms and washrooms, semi pedestals are a shorter version of a full length. With its style, it takes up less space and creates a more contemporary and elegant feel. The distinguished difference from a full pedestal is that the pipework is concealed in the wall. People choose this to maximise floor space and to make floor cleaning easier.

Corner Basins

Corner basins are known to be a great solution for small spaces. Corner basins can be wall mounted or fitted with a full or semi pedestal. It provides a neat and tidy use of available space.

Vanity Unit Basins

Vanity unit basins are often made from a large piece of ceramic that covers the whole vanity unit top or completely inset into a vanity unit. This provides extra storage space below the basin. Available in a variety of styles and materials, modern bathroom designs now often incorporate contrasting materials to accentual a signature style.


Wall Mounted Basin

Wall basins are fixed directly to the wall with brackets. These are ideal for saving space and offer a very minimalistic look. It gives illusion of great space and less clutter. To contribute to the tidy efficiency, wall mounted basins are usually fitted with a either chrome-plated bottle trap. 

Tap into your Style

The basin has to be matched with taps. This is just as important as choosing the basin itself. The combination of taps to basin is not only about style but also about suitable for fitting to your basin. For example, some basins have only one central tap hole; so will require a mixer tap. Others have two for traditional separate hot and cold taps.

Throughout choosing your ideal basin and taps, it’s recommended to speak to a expert to ensure you are informed not only about the design elements of a new bathroom but also the ergonomics and installation process of what you choose.
