The bathroom is often described as a sanctuary in your home – it’s where you have some time to yourself to prepare yourself for the day, and where you come to relax and unwind in the evening.

Functionality, Beauty & Ambience

Your bathroom needs to be not only functional, but also beautiful, welcoming and create the right atmosphere for you, your family and your guests. Lighting is one of the ways in which you can set the mood and ambience of your bathroom, and LED lights provide an option that is both practical and relaxing.


LED lights are a great bathroom lighting solution, as they have the potential to provide a much better light source than halogen bulbs – they are brighter and more powerful while using a far lower voltage, meaning you save money on your energy bills, and their longer lifespan means they will need replacing far less often. They also reach a larger area, lighting the whole room evenly with a uniform distribution. What’s more, they can be safer in bathrooms compared to incandescent lighting, as they don’t conduct heat.

LED lights have many more applications, however, and thanks to their versatility and the range of temperatures and colours that they are available in, you can use them to create the perfect atmosphere for your bathroom refuge.

Which LED colour temperature is best for the bathroom?

Neutral white (with Kelvin measurements of 4000 – 5000K) or cool white LEDs (5000K+) are normally placed in bathrooms and kitchens where there is a need for a brighter light as tasks are performed.

How can LEDs improve your bathroom experience?

LED lights make excellent lighting for mirror fixtures, allowing you to see clearly when applying make up, shaving, or brushing your teeth. Try installing fairly bright and cool LED lights on either side of the mirror at eye level, as this will prevent your face from being pooled in shadow. You can also use LED lights to accentuate any bathroom art or other decorations, and even incorporate them into the bathroom fixtures themselves!

Installing dimmable LEDs will make your bathroom an even more relaxing space. This solution means you can adjust your lighting to suit your mood or the time of day. Be kind to your eyes first thing in the morning or set the mood for a long soak in the bath simply by flicking a switch.
