Bathroom Lighting

In the modern home, bathroom lighting is key for both practicality and also for creating the desired effect and style in a room. Bathroom lighting has evolved so much from the conventional harsh ceiling bulb and it is really something to take advantage of when renovating the bathroom. Bathroom lights are critical in the modern home for creating the right mood and overall impression of a room, and of course it also needs to be safe and practical. We think bathroom lighting is one of the most important accessories to select for your bathroom. Here at Bella Bathrooms, we have an extensive range of bathroom wall lights, ceiling lights and downlights to help you create the perfect lighting for your bathroom space.

What types of Bathroom Lighting are Available?

  • Ceiling Lights
  • Mirror Lights
  • Shower Lights
  • Downlights

When it comes to installing bathroom light fittings, wall lights and downlights can be installed in a variety of different locations and due to this great flexibility they can be used to highlight and ‘show off’ certain aspects of your bathroom. For example, early in the morning you may need a bright light to wake you up in the shower; whereas an evening bath may call for low lighting to aid relaxation. Bathroom lighting that can produce both bright and subtle lighting is invaluable for your bathroom. More modern bathrooms are featuring this combination of lighting so that you can select the most appropriate type of lighting for the job at hand. LED spotlights are energy efficient and are perfect reamed with bathroom wall lights.

Which Bathroom Lighting should you choose?

Ceiling Lights

These lights come in an extensive range of sizes, designs and energy options. If your bathroom deserves a spot of luxury then why not install LED spotlights? The more traditional bathroom may call for a large round ceiling light or one of the other hanging varieties in the wide spectrum. LED ceiling lights are a popular choice to add a fresh white light or a warm glow to any bathroom; they also boast an 80% energy saving factor compared to a halogen mains light. A bright ceiling light (or numerous spot lights) is vital in bathrooms with little or no natural light.

Mirror Lights

Lighting above or around the mirror is the most practical and functional place to install bathroom light fittings where we need it most. A bathroom mirror light can be a statement feature in the room, or it can be purely installed to make the bathroom a more efficient place to get ready in the morning or evening. Mirrors reflect any natural light so when teamed with a mirror light they can really create a bright impact in your bathroom.

Shower Lights

Lighting designs which are mounted onto the wall give you more freedom in the placement of your lighting, and allow you to draw attention to a certain area of the room. They also produce a softer light than overhead lighting, and complete the overall style of the room. These shower lights can greatly improve your showering time whilst providing effective lighting for the rest of the bathroom.


Downlighting adds a contemporary glow to any bathroom, and can be fitted all over the room; even directly above the shower. They are installed into a hollow opening and have the power to transform any bathroom into an appealing space. Low voltage LED downlights are efficient due to their low wattage requirements, and additionally can be adjusted and dimmed to amend perfectly to your current mood. Also available in the downlights range are fire rated downlights, which have a higher fire resistant quality than most and meet more legal requirements than regular lighting. These bathroom spotlights are becoming one of the most popular bathroom light fixtures. Downlights are the ultimate choice for an enlightening, safe and practical shower experience.
