Update Your Bathroom Lighting

Many homeowners design or redesign their bathrooms by adding a gorgeous Layout 1mirror. Typically, the standard or go-to theme is to add light fixtures above the mirror, giving you the task lighting to get ready in the morning or to brush your teeth or wash your face at night. However, using just recessed lighting and fixtures above the mirror are poor ways to make use of artificial light. That would throw a strong light onto your forehead and cast deep shadows below your eyes, nose and chin. Not only is this light ineffective for shaving or applying makeup, it can visually age you by 10 years. People should look their best when they look at their reflection. Fill in areas of darkness by utilizing layers of light – overhead fixtures, sconces on either side of the mirror.

My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night; but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -­ it gives a lovely light!
