Bathroom lighting – beneficial and safe
The right lighting can turn your bathroom into a wellness center. Here you can start the day undisturbed, relax in the bath or reenergize yourself with an invigorating shower.
The right light helps create a feel-good atmosphere. Background and mirror lighting are crucial factors. Glare can be a problem in bathrooms because there are lots of reflective surfaces. When planning the brightness of the background lighting the color of the walls and tiles must be taken into consideration. Dark surfaces absorb light and therefore require much high illuminances. Safety is also fundamental. Special measures must be taken because the bathroom where electricity and water come together. When choosing a fixture for the bathroom you should make sure that it has the appropriate level of protection (at least IP X4 within 60 centimeters of the bathtub or shower).
