Bathroom lighting ideas, like a lot of home design, comes down to three core elements: practicality, functionality and personal style. Without all three, a bathroom can become a tricky space to interact with and, for a room we all use so frequently, it's important to get the design right from the beginning. 

Planning ahead and organising smart lighting alongside a bathroom design from the beginning of a project (be it a quick update or completely new space) will save both time and money. Alterations to a lighting design once work has begun can be messy and costly so do speak to your electrician.
