20 beautiful bathroom lighting ideas

Gieves Anderson

Whether you’re planning a major renovation or just looking to add more versatility to your tub, you’ll need to consider bathroom lighting ideas to transform your space. Insufficient lighting can lead to grooming issues, while strong lighting can drown out spa-like auras. The right lighting not only gives a bathroom retreat function, but wakes it up – a must when it comes to shaking off that early morning stunner!

The best interior designers use a wide variety of lighting options – wall sconces, flush mounts and pendant installations, to name a few – to design the perfect lighting scheme in bathrooms. Follow their lead and choose a chandelier to hang above a tub or flank a vanity mirror with twin wall sconces. To craft a spa experience, use a floor lamp. You can place one next to a bathtub (bubbles and all!) to create unexpected mood lighting. And, of course, nothing beats natural lighting. Take full advantage of sun-drenched windows and select airy window treatments and mirrored reflective surfaces that are perfect for dispersing light throughout your room.

Learn from the best and get inspired for timeless bathroom lighting ideas to come. As you will see, there is no shortage of ideas when it comes to hardware, brightness and much more. Whether it’s a crystal chandelier, an understated flush mount, or an out-of-left-field floor lamp, these designs showcase the wide range of bathroom lighting options.
