  • Use windows as sources for natural light during the day.

  • Nightlights should be in place under the vanity table or inside cabinets. Use a linear light system for this.

  • Cove light is decorative. Soft lights add a warm glow to the bathroom.

  • Task light is important at the sides of mirror. There should be warm fluorescent sconces to illuminate face for grooming and make-up purposes.
