Your bathroom is just the place where you do your business, wash your hands, take your shower, and make sure all your bits are cared for properly. You get in, get out and move on with your day. Sadly, the bathroom, aside from the hall closet, is one of the most overlooked and underutilised rooms in your home. Underutilised, you ask? Well, sure, you use it every day, but you’re missing one of the most important possibilities for your bathroom - the oasis from the world!
Clean and Modern
Traditional incandescent or fluorescent overhead bathroom lights, give off light but that light is often too bright and flickery or yellow tinged. Seeing clearly and completely when shaving, showering or brushing your teeth is something everyone should get to enjoy. Overhead recessed lighting using a fire rated GU10 LED bulb provides bright, crisp, clear light that doesn’t flicker and never appears yellow or dingy. LEDs are cool to the touch and give off cool white light to perfectly set off the white sinks, tiles or other modern features of your bathroom.
Battery operated LED lights can be installed in drawers and storage spaces so when you need light to find tissues or a shaving attachment, you have it.
Warm and Cosy
GU10 LED spotlight bulbs are perfect for overhead bathroom lighting, but what about lighting those corners or accent areas where bright light isn’t necessary? LED strip lighting is perfect for accenting bathroom features like mirrors, under or inside cabinets, and even around bathtubs. Because LED strip lights are waterproof, you can use them inside spa tubs to add just enough light for a special “spa time”, or around bathtubs to replace candles when just a little light will do.
LED strip lights come in warm white, cool white, and RGB options so you can choose to light your bathroom with white or coloured lights.
How LEDs are Different
In most homes, incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lights have been fine for lighting spaces we use every day. Unfortunately, incandescent bulbs are going the way of the dinosaur, halogens aren’t cost effective, and fluorescent bulbs aren’t environmentally friendly or good on the eyes. Fortunately, there is an alternative you can find at online retailers like LightRabbit. LED lighting consumes less energy than other lighting but outputs 90% of that energy as light. While it may cost a little more in the beginning, it can save you up to 90% on your annual energy costs. Also, LEDs are cool to the touch which means they won’t burn your drapes, your lampshades or your body when you brush up against them. Because LEDs are manufactured using only the best technology and materials, you can rest assured that your investment is eco-friendly. With LED lighting in your bathroom you can create a clean modern space or a warm and cosy space - all with cost effective, eco-friendly, energy efficient LED lighting.
