Lighting for small bathroom
Does anyone know if there is a calculation/formula for watts/sq foot for lighting?
The bathroom we are working on is only 8x6. I am not sure I have the width for side sconces so I will probably get an overhanging fixture with lights like sconces, i.e. with shades but hanging down.
Sorry no pics but on the 8' walls- the shower/tub and small closet line one side and the toilet and vanity on the other. So the space is really only 3.5 ft wide/not 6' when you factor in the 2.5' for tub. The door and a wall with a good sized window line those ends.
I have ordered a recessed can light that has a vent/fan built in that I planned to go over the shower. Are the two fixtures enough light? My BF thinks we need one more canned light smack dab in the center of the ceiling. I think that would look weird and if we add extras, 2 small ones would be better.
Are three canned lights PLUS vanity light overkill for such a small bath? Any thoughts and or suggestions appreciated!
