bathroom wall lights

Creating a gorgeous bathroom that is well lit and highly functional will serve your home for many years to come. Function and safety should always come first when lighting a bathroom, but aesthetics really do matter!

A bathroom is one of the most versatile and used rooms in a home, having to constantly adapt its purpose from tasks such as applying makeup, to relaxing evenings in the bath. This requires control, flexibility and exquisite lighting.

Where functionality and aesthetics collide, you can still make a grand statement in your bathroom with wall lights. The perfect lighting choice for small, and large bathroom spaces.

Can You Put Wall Lights In A Bathroom?

A bathroom is considered a special location for electrical installation, but wall lights can be used in a bathroom. You just need to ensure they meet the IP regulations required, wall lights should carry a minimum rating of IP44, but generally it's better to go higher to IP65.

7 Bathroom Wall Lights That Make A Statement

1.Flaxman Polished Brass IP66 Rated Bulkhead Wall Light

We adore how Holly has used a pair of our Flaxman bathroom wall lights to illuminate her small, downstairs bathroom. Whilst it can be difficult to light a small space with no natural light, her choice of paint and placement of wall lights helps to illuminate the room adequately for everyday use, and tasks such as applying makeup.

Positioning a pair of lights either side of a mirror is the best location for lighting around a mirror as it evenly distributes light across your face, unlike downlights which can cast downward light on your face, making your skin look tired.

2. Sheraton Nickel IP44 Rated Wall Light

Make a statement and add an Art Deco flair to your bathroom with the stunning Sheraton wall light. As pictured, a pair of these to enhance your walls and light up an art print creates a well illuminated and stylish backdrop for a soak.

They work best when combined with an additional light source such as downlights or a pendant light so you have more control over your lighting throughout the day.
