In this blog, we bring our top 7 designer-approved lighting ideas for your home. We talk (in detail) about the different types of lights that will make your interiors sparkle. We will also bring to your notice the different types of lighting schemes for various situations, such as low lighting, task lighting and accent lighting.

Different Types Of Lights For The Bathroom

Our first lighting idea fits with an accent lighting type and is ideal for spaces like bathrooms. Here, the track lighting on the side of the mirror and the vanity is accompanied by different types of light bulbs. You can add more hanging lights in the corner of the open space to add a more glowy charm to your bathroom. The track lighting offers more perfection when it is mounted side-wise to the mirror. This bestows a spectacular display and augments the beauty of your space.
