Set up your bathroom with scenic lighting to achieve the perfect ambience

Light plays not only a fundamental role in a bathroom but shapes its ambience as well. Matters like having the basic lighting, accents, and functional lighting need to be considered for achieving the perfect setup.

Basic lighting pertains to the pieces that light the way of homeowners inside the bathroom. Accent lighting injects a feel-good factor into the lighting concept. This could be contrast-rich and expressive lighting that not only generates a stimulating atmosphere in the bathroom but also helps one to feel cosy. Lastly, functional lighting is focused at the washing area; ideally, it must be bright but not dazzling to the user.

For colours, it may range from warm yellow to cold blue. The idea is that homeowners get to enjoy the perfect light at any time of the day. Besides the usual warm white through neutral white up to daylight white, you may also opt to use cold tones in the morning to wake you up and warm lighting in the evening to help you relax.

Here are some products that you may install in your bathroom, with each offering aesthetically pleasing and technologically advanced scenic lighting for your bathroom:

1 / 7

Warm lighting

A warmly lit bathroom creates a cosy place of refuge, especially during the coldest season. For the perfect ambient light, look towards the Happy D.2 Plus mirror in the "radial" finish, designed by Sieger Design.

2 / 7

Balancing natural light

Achieve that perfect balance of natural light and LED with the ambient light-activated, glare-free lighting at the top edge of the Luv mirror. Designed by Cecilie Manz, this guarantees optimum illumination of up to 1700 lux.

3 / 7

Functional and well-lit

This Happy D.2 Plus C-shaped washing area features an icon version of the mirror in the "organic" finish that gives the user a personalised lighting setup. The variant has an icon control on the mirror surface for dimmer function and light-colour setting with memory effect.

Illuminated treasure chest

An optional inner lighting system is available with the Happy D.2 Plus vanity unit. The LED light turns on or off when the drawer is opened or closed. This is ideal for bathrooms with smaller windows or for users who seldom turn on the basic lighting of the room.

Another drawer that could be illuminated is this Philippe Starck-designed barrel. When the doors are opened, the optional LED installation illuminates the interior without glare so users can easily search through.

5 / 7

Night light

Night lights guide your way to the SensoWash® Starck F shower-toilet without disrupting the body's resting state with overly bright light.

6 / 7

Achieving cosy atmosphere and perfect spotlight

Though well-lit vanity mirrors seem ideal, this XViu mirror variant with icon control offers you not only perfect spotlight but also cosy ambient lighting. At a luminosity of up to 1000 lux, the light colour can be continuously adjusted from 2,700 (warm light) to 6,500 kelvin (cold light). A neutral white (approx. 4,000 kelvin) is ideal for shaving or applying make-up. This is also from Sieger Design.

7 / 7

Romantic ambience with candlelight and mirror lighting

Check out this Happy D.2 Plus mirror with circular ambient light that suits perfectly for a romantic bath in the evening. The LED-lighting can be individually configured using the touch screen.
