Things to be considered for effective bathroom design

Bathroom ceiling fans are called intermittent ventilation and are used to capture and remove pollutants quickly at the source while correct lighting is essential for the bathroom, according to

Durham,January 2009 - “The purpose of using bathroom fans is to exhaust excessive moisture or pollutants before they can spread to other parts of the house. Such kind of exhaust fans can be found in bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms, exercise rooms, workshops, garages and home offices” says Mr. James Chapman of

Speaking about the importance of bathroom lighting, Mr. James Chapman said “Ambient bathroom lighting sets the stage to add task or accent lighting to call out the room’s features. There exists an incredible array of task and accent bathroom lighting available in many styles and finishes including; traditional, transitional, modern, Country, Western, Tropical, Rustic, Contemporary, Victorian, Tiffany and more. Glare can be annoying, especially when performing delicate grooming tasks. Recessed bathroom lighting for baths should be adjustable with an attachment that goes over the fixture; an eyeball or a wall-wash trim are both covers that partially obscure the fixture and direct the light source to bounce light off the walls and ceiling to help reduce glare and shadow.”

He added that “The most important aspect of task bathroom lighting is to enhance visual clarity and provide shadow-free light for ease of personal grooming. Vertical fixtures or sconces mounted on either side of the mirror are best for makeup and shaving. Be sure to position sconces to shed equal light on both sides of the face, and 3 to 4 feet apart on the wall. Bathroom fixtures should have translucent shades to diffuse light, and exposed bulbs should be frosted to cut glare.”

Speaking on the move, Mr. James Chapman said “Whether you choose incandescent, LED or even fluorescent bulbs, make sure the light they emit is within the natural daylight spectrum. Bulbs that are mostly yellow or white will not reflect your natural skin tone. It is recommended that special neodymium light bulbs be used in the vanity fixtures since they provide excellent light that very closely simulates sunlight. A neodymium light bulb is an incandescent light bulb that has a slight bluish tint to it. The bluish tint, created by a thin coating of neodymium inside the glass envelope, will cause the light bulb to provide less yellowish light like a standard incandescent light bulb and, therefore, be more like the sun. This will be great for effective bathroom lighting”
