CAN I USE RECESSED DOWN LIGHTS IN MY BATHROOM?
Recessed down lights are perfect for using in bathrooms. They create a sleek stylish modern look and a crisp bright light which reflects off polished surfaces and tiles. Down lights work well in nearly all bathrooms as well as wet rooms, saunas or steam rooms. If you have a white ceiling you can select white down lights to blend in, or alternatively select chrome or satin chrome to match in with the taps or shower.
Take care when selecting recessed down lights for your bathroom as you will usually need special bathroom rated ones which are designed to offer protection against water penetration.
Down lights for a bathroom are not overly expensive and and are especially good for providing light over a shower or bath tub, over a sink or above a mirror or vanity unit or in any alcoves. Bathrooms need a good level of light and normally most bathrooms have only one central light. This is probably acceptable for smaller bathrooms, but if you have a reasonably sized room you could be left with darker areas and down lights could make all the difference. When looking at the lighting for your bathroom, consider the lighting levels you will need both during the daytime and at night. It is possible to use only recessed down lights in a bathroom or to mix and match with other styles of bathroom lighting. Using coloured bulbs in some of the down lights can create a lovely atmosphere for that long soak in the bathtub.
