Bathroom Lighting that Stands Out: Easy Update

One of our favorite things about interior design is seeing how style evolves over time. We are currently loving the interior evolution that is taking place in bathrooms! Bathroom lighting has come such a long way! Bathrooms are transitioning from a necessity to a place of relaxation with spa-like elements. Here at S&N we think that in order to create a place of relaxation, all the room elements must add up to depict a space that is as functional as it is an elegant escape. Updating your bathroom lighting is a sure-fire way to make an impact at a reasonable cost and perhaps the help of an electrician. The best part is you don’t have to just stick to the traditional vanity bar lighting above a mirror anymore. These days you can find every style of light in bathrooms that bring an extra dose of personality & drama. Don’t be afraid of doing something different in your own bathroom…we think these images prove anything goes!

1. Chandeliers create a pretty softness that is often forgotten in traditional bathroom design. We love how these chandeliers make the room feel like more of an experience than just a space.

3. Wall Sconces will continue to be a bathroom staple and come in a multitude of styles making find one that fits you and your bathroom a fairly easy task. The decision that you will have to make is how you would like to place these in relationship to your mirrors.

4. Backlighting & Indirect light can make a room seem larger than it actually is – plus it creates great glow for applying make up and getting ready!

5. Flush mount lights are wonderful options for lower ceilings allowing you to bring in larger scale pieces and options. It is a great way to add depth to a home’s style and update canned lighting to create a huge difference!
