Bespoke Lights offer a superb selection of both modern and traditional bathroom light fittings that are perfect for hotel en-suite bathrooms and wet rooms. The aim should be to make hotel and guest bathrooms inviting spaces by providing an experience that combines comfort with functionality. An effective lighting scheme should give even illumination with a comfortable level of brightness in a flattering warm white colour range.
Our collection of hotel bathroom light fittings include bathroom ceiling lights, recessed shower downlights, over bathroom mirror lights, bathroom wall lights, illuminated mirrors and spotlights. We aim to offer competitively priced bathroom lighting that can safely be used in the bathroom environment.
Bathrooms have lots of hard surfaces that usually incorporate glass and shiny white fittings with little in the way of soft furnishings. This can be a challenge when it comes to lighting. It helps to break the space down into zones.
Firstly the area over the sink - here you are aiming for an even shadow free light for the person standing at the sink or looking into the mirror over the sink. It is best if the light can come from the side of the mirror as it will give a more even spread of light. If side lights are not possible a good alternative is a light over the mirror that gives a good distribution of light. An illuminated, mist free bathroom mirror is a good option if the budget permits.
Secondly, the area over the shower. Having a downlight over the shower or a suitable shower wall lights are great ideas.
Next the area over the bath and the toilet. Downlights do not work as well when positioned directly over the bath or the toilet. These spaces are best relying on the general or ambient lighting provided in the room.
Lastly the general or ambient lighting. Downlights are a good way to provide the ambient lighting needed in hotel bathrooms. They give an even distribution of light around the room and offer a sleek low profile look. Just avoid placing them right above the bath or toilet. Flush or semi-flush fitting ceiling lights are just as effective for providing the required ambient lighting and depending on the size of the en-suite bathroom you may need more than one fitting to give the required spread of light.
As you would expect there are specific guidelines when it comes to bathroom lighting due to the presence of water. The bathroom is zoned into areas and light fittings are rated according to the areas in which they can be used. Bespoke Light have included a diagram and details with each of our bathroom lights that should allow you to safely select the appropriate fittings for using in hotel bathrooms.
