Bathroom Lighting and Security Risk

Lighting is one of the most important elements in the bathroom. In the absence of adequate lighting, activities in the bathroom is not only difficult, but also dangerous for children, adults, and the elderly.

 

Activities in the bathroom without proper lighting at risk of causing accidents. In modest houses, bathroom lighting is generally only come from one source of light, which lights attached to the ceiling in the bathroom.

 

It is actually not wrong, it’s just, necessary to ensure there is no “dark room” due to the shadow in the bathroom. However, the bathroom with more complex features, improved quality of lighting can be either a reduction shadows and glare. This can be achieved by multiple light sources.

 

Lighting source that you can consider first is the lighting in the sink or vanity area. For women, the balance of light in this place can also facilitate the use of make-up.

 

Generally, the lights in the sink is a wall lamp. Make sure the lights are at the correct height.

Put on the sides of the glass to give the amount of light balanced between all sides of the glass. This can reduce the amount of shadow that will be formed if you only have one light source.

 

The second source of lighting you should consider is the lighting in the shower area. At least, provide a source of lighting in the area. If possible, include the natural light of the sun in your bathroom.

 

To make sure you still get the privacy, use glass block, dewy glass (frosted glass), or place the window far above your bathroom wall.
