10 Bathroom Lighting Ideas to Make You Look Your Best

Jonathan Steinitz

Using lighting to set the mood is a tried-and-true design technique, but there's one oft-overlooked space that should always be a priority: the bathroom. Sure, you entertain guests in your living room and dining room, and sometimes on your patio, and we love pouring our best decorating ideas into getting just the right ambiance in those spots.

But consider this: Your bathroom is a space where you spend time getting ready for the day ahead and winding down for bed, both of which require being in the right mind-set. After all, it's important to look your best when heading to the office, out with friends, or on a date, and it's equally important to get ready for bed in a relaxed state. Not to mention still making a stylish impression for guests (they use that space, too). In all these cases, the cardinal rule of Instagram applies: Lighting matters.

Luckily upgrading bathroom lighting can be a relatively budget-friendly affair when compared with more intensive bathroom renovations, so you don't have to worry about getting bang for your buck. Besides, there's no better time than boring old winter for a design project, right? So whether you’re targeting a tranquil, spa-inspired bathtub vibe or a bright, glam getting-ready space, there is no shortage of pendants, flush mounts, sconces, or chandeliers to suit your personal style.

Finding your light just got easier. Below, check out 10 chic bathroom lighting ideas that will keep you always looking your best.

Which of these bathroom lighting ideas would best suit the mood of your space?
