Let good bathroom lighting set the mood

The correct lighting for putting on make-up, shaving or drying your hair – but also lighting which is warm and inviting makes you feel happy. Light is so important to our well-being. Imagine yourself getting up early and preparing for the day under bathroom lighting which emits a glaring, blinding and cold shine. Then remember how important it is to consider the lighting when designing your bathroom. We have collected a series of tips for quality bathroom lighting which provides good working light, sets the right mood and adds sparkle to the humdrum of everyday life.

  • Lighting

1. Consider the working light

The light from your bathroom mirror should reveal the details you prefer to detect before others do. In other words, you should be able to do your make-up or shave under bathroom lighting which is as natural as possible while allowing you to see yourself as you would in good daylight. We recommend that you choose a mirror or a mirror cabinet with integrated lighting or lights fitted overhead.

There are plenty of options available for bathroom mirrors with lighting, for example our popular round Moon mirror or the square Show mirror with lighting all the way round.

Did you know that a 60-year old person needs twice as much light as a 20-year old?

3. Approved for bathroom use

The lighting you install in your bathroom must be designed for bathroom use. Regulations differentiate between the different zones in a room and light fittings for use in zone 2 require an IP44 certification. Zone 2 is the area 60cm from the outer edge of the shower enclosure or the bath or 120cm from the shower head. All Dansani light fixtures and integrated lighting have IP44 certification for use as bathroom lighting, which gives you the reassurance you need.
