Creating an ambience with scenic lighting

Light is functional and atmospheric and plays an elementary role in the bathroom. There are three aspects that need to be considered for the perfect lighting setup: basic lighting, accent lighting, and functional lighting.

Bathroom Lighting Design Ideas

While basic lighting lights our way, accent lighting injects a feel-good factor into the lighting concept. Contrast-rich and expressive lighting generates a stimulating atmosphere in the bathroom and creates cosy accents.

Conversely, the focus at the washing area is on functional lighting this needs to be bright without dazzling the user. From warm white to neutral white and up to daylight white – the spectrum of light colors ranges from warm yellow to cool blue, you can enjoy the perfect light at any time of day: cold in the morning to wake you up, warm in the evening to help you relax.
