Bathroom lighting is arguably the most underrated part of the whole decor. This doesn’t just go for bathrooms, sadly it’s an all-around-the-house problem. Lighting is not only absolutely essential in any room due to its functional aspect, but it’s also a fantastic means of elevating your decor to something worthy of Architectural Digest’s cover.
As such, choosing the right lighting is absolutely essential. There are various types of lighting out there, however, when it comes to bathroom lighting, the most common models are suspension lights and wall lights. Usually, floor lights aren’t of much use in a bathroom as the light is very concentrated and the floor tends to be humid.
Suspension lights, however, light up the whole room. This could also be accomplished with ceiling lights, but let’s be frank, suspension lights have a lot more pizzazz! In this case, we’re using suspension lights as an umbrella term for any light that’s connected to the ceiling, but not stuck to it, like, for example, a plafonier would be.
Wall lights, on the other hand, are – as you might’ve guessed – connected to a wall. They’re typically used to illuminate specific pieces in your bathroom, such as a bathtub or a vanity. This is a great opportunity to spruce up your bathroom decor, as objects on walls are a lot more noticeable than objects above eye level – a common fact, crucial for marketers and main characters in action films.
Now that we have reviewed all the prerequisites for this class, here are our top picks for luxurious bathroom lighting:
Babel II Suspension Light
Have you ever stopped to admire the beauty of ice cascades in the peak of winter? Although there was no official inspiration announced for this suspension light by Luxxu, we find it incredibly reminiscing of that daunting, yet absolutely stunning, natural masterpiece. Combining gold plated brass and luscious crystals, this is a phenomenal bathroom lighting idea if you’re lucky enough to have tall ceilings.
If you don’t feel daring enough, or if you simply don’t have enough room, for something like the Babel II, the Majestic Suspension Lamp is a wonderful alternative. With mystique that lives up to its name, this intricate brass lamp with uneven acrylic tubes dancing around it creates a unique ambience in any room it’s in, instantly catching your eye. A majestic piece of bathroom lighting, indeed.
From the creators of the aforementioned Babel II, comes the Pharo. Inspired by the imposing and robust structure of a Lighthouse, this magnificent chandelier pierces through the darkness and the landscape just like one. This is not a bathroom lighting option for the faint of heart, but if you do decide to take the leap, you won’t have a boring day ever again!
The Brubeck really is a mind boggling bathroom lighting piece: how can a lamp be so simple yet make such a statement? Composed by a cluster of brass tubes, emulating a pipe organ, this lamp is capable of creating an embracing and daring ambience all by itself!
Liberty I Wall
Does the shape of this astounding lamp remind you of anything? Maybe a french-made American staple? Taking inspiration from the torch that Lady Liberty herself so elegantly holds, the Liberty I Wall was created. Just like the flaming torch brings Liberty Island to life, this breathtaking wall light is granted to do the same for your bathroom.
Last, but not least, is this superb bathroom lighting specimen. Inspired by the Draycott Tower in Singapore, this delicate, but, nevertheless, exquisite wall lamp is as striking as its muse. With cut-out brass tubes encasing ribbed crystal glass ones, this unique wall light will make the delights of anyone who enters the room the Draycott II is so graciously lighting up.
