Best Colors For Atmospheric Lighting in Your Bathroom
So often, we take for granted the light in any given space. We notice the lighting in a restaurant and how it makes us feel. However, we never notice what our lighting feels like in our bathroom. That’s probably because there is nothing luxurious about standard ceiling lights in your bathroom. However, today’s modern bathroom is a multi-functional space, that can transform from utility to a calming spa oasis within a day’s time. LED smart lighting is a great, inexpensive way to turn drab boring spaces into colorful, mood enhancing experiences.
Considering all of the factors that go into a properly lit bathroom, choosing the right lighting colors and temperatures is essential for the perfect atmospheric lighting in your bathroom.
Here are the top three colors for getting your bathroom atmosphere just right:
The best color temperatures for task lighting in your bathroom like vanity lighting, can range from cool white/ bright white or daylight. These color temperatures (in Kelvin) usually vary between soft white (2700K -3000K), cool White/ bright white (3500K - 4100K) and daylight (5000K-6500K). Higher kelvin temperatures mean more white output, while actual brightness depends on the lumens in the bulb.
These colors create the perfect, harmonious lighting for simple day-to-day tasks.
Placing your bright white bulbs in your bathroom is easy using wall lights, ceiling lights, chandelier lights and more. They are a good replacement for natural light from the windows and gives your space a nice fresh morning glow for when you’re shaving, putting on makeup or trying on clothes in the morning.
When it comes to turning your multi-functional bathroom into an atmosphere you can enjoy, we recommend blue lighting while showering or using water. (1)Natural blue light is known to boost alertness, heightened cognition and elevate your mood. It is also the natural color of water and the sky and can aid in wellness.
You can use this unique mood lighting to stimulate a color therapy or chromotherapy environment.
Although, considered a pseudoscience, chromotherapy claims to be able to use light in the form of color to help heal an individual's well being.
Hey, it may sound silly. However, you can’t beat creating an atmosphere of deep ocean blues while soaking in the day. It is enough to feel like you’re on a beach in Bermuda.
Suave and Sophisticated Purples - Designer Lighting
Nothing says, sophistication and class like purple bathroom lighting, which can make you feel like you’re in a penthouse suite in Vegas. Because of the historical association purple lighting has to royalty and glamour, we suggest using it for accentuating your light in your home. This can create an atmosphere that helps you feel like a million bucks, while helping add a little style to your space.
You can use purple in your shower or lining your vanity with an LED light strip. It is an amazing accent color that is complementary to yellow and can be used on wall sconces, chandeliers and more decorative lighting fixtures.
