Often overlooked, bathroom lighting is more than simply a functional light source. Lighting in a bathroom is obviously key for providing proper illumination for specific tasks, such as makeup application and shaving. Yet, the confines of such a small space make bathroom fixtures all the more noticeable and impactful on overall style and ambience.

When selecting lighting for a bathroom, consider the tasks that will take place in that particular bathroom. For example, is it for everyday use, just for kids, a powder room for guests? A lighting expert at an ALA-member lighting showroom can help determine the perfect fixtures that are up to the appropriate tasks yet without giving up style and sophistication.
