2016 Is The Year of Bathroom Mood Lighting. Here's Your Quick-Start Guide
In late 2015, we explored the bathroom trends that we thought would catch the public’s attention this year. Well, here we are in 2016, and it looks as though one particular trend is really taking off: mood lighting in the bathroom. This idea covers everything from ceiling lights all the way through to under water lighting systems for your whirlpool bath.
If you’ve been keen to find a way to create a warm, relaxing – and maybe even romantic – mood in your bathroom, read on to find out how to do just that.
The many forms of mood lighting
The first thing to consider when planning to introduce mood lighting to your bathroom is the precise form it will take. We’ll go into a little more detail on these later on, but there are generally two different types of bathroom mood lighting: the room lighting itself and underwater lighting. It’s the latter that can really create a little magic in your bathroom, but the former is important too. When you choose a main lighting system for your bathroom, consider how you can create mood and ambiance. With this in mind, we’d always recommend that you install dimmer switches in your bathroom. These will give you fine-grain control over the overall bathroom’s mood at any time.
Underwater lighting: your secret weapon?
Whether you choose down-lighters, strip lighting, or something more contemporary for your main lighting system, that’s really just half of the puzzle. Bathrooms can be big places, so you want to be sure you’re lighting the right areas in just the right ways. The main focus of many bathrooms is the bathroom itself, and there’s one way you can really bring your bath to life – underwater lighting. Designed to offer the ultimate in bathroom mood lighting, these LED systems can be installed into the shell of any whirlpool bath, and many allow you to tweak the colour of the lighting to your precise wishes. Want to immerse yourself in a serene blue glow, or perhaps let the stress wash away in the relaxing glimmer of green? With an underwater lighting system, your bathroom will become a veritable haven.
A range of choices in underwater lighting
Like any other form of technology, it’s always a good idea to do your homework before making your decision. Here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, you’ll find a choice selection of underwater lighting systems that allow you to choose from a spectrum of different colours. While you are doing your research, it’s also a good idea to check out chromotherapy: a centuries-old form of therapy that uses coloured light to restore energy and make you feel refreshed. So with an underwater lighting system, you’re getting far more than a place to relax – it’s therapeutic too!
