One of the easiest ways to set your custom home bathrooms apart from the rest is with bathroom lighting. The right unique lighting can give you the spa-like feel you desire and help to customize your new home.
Bathroom lighting is often overlooked because there are so many design elements that go into a custom home. However, it’s vitally important as it sets the mood in your bathroom. If you want it to feel romantic, you need the right type of lighting. If you want it to feel relaxing, that’s a different type of lighting.
It’s important to consider the right type of lights. With bathroom lighting, there are three main choices:
- Ambient lighting
- Accent Lighting
- Task Lighting
All three play a role to provide the right type of lighting. Ambient helps you see to get around the bathroom, while accent lighting ads layers to highlight specific areas, usually for the design and appeal. Task lighting helps with things like putting on makeup, showering, or grooming.
Here are a few quick tips to help you choose the right bathroom lighting for your custom home.
Light up the Tub
If you have a tub and shower, you want to light it up, since it will be a design element and an important place for you to see. You can use wall sconces near the tub and add LED lights to the shower, as well.
Adding in the right lighting fixtures will make a statement and help to set the mood. Make sure you consider how the fixtures will look, but also how they will light up the space.
Add a Chandelier

There are many ways to customize your home, but adding the right bathroom lighting will make a big difference. The last thing you want is to move in and wish you had more light in the bathrooms.
