bathroom lighting questions
In our new house, the ceiling of the master bath will be vaulted and about 16' with 1 frosted, north-facing window. I'm also installing a solar tube for a bit more natural light.
So, as for vanity lighting--I'm thinking I need plenty--so at least 5 lights over each vanity (separated by the shower enclosure)....would that be enough for putting on makeup, etc., or do I want more?
In the last hotel we stayed at, I was amazed at how great I looked in the bathroom mirror, so I realized how important lighting can be. I couldn't tell the type of bulbs used since the lighting was upward and pretty much enclosed (I tried to look!). There were 4 lights--2 of which were "cool" while the other 2 were "warm".....this makes me think they were fluorescent perhaps? I think it must've been this combo that was so flattering--am I right?
Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions you might have--my builder says I need to choose lighting by next week....
