When you bought your home, one of the main selling points may have been the master bathroom and how spacious and functional it was. On the other hand, the master bath may have been small and cramped, but you saw the potential for how you could update it and make it an amazing, luxurious space. Whatever the case may be, Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale has the perfect bathroom lighting options for your master en suite, and you can find fixtures that add the ideal finishing touch or provide inspiration for the decor in the rest of the room.
The Bathroom Vanity
The vanity and sink area is where you spend a majority of your time, getting ready in the morning by shaving, putting on makeup, or brushing your teeth. When you moved into your house, there may have been one vanity light above the mirror, and you quickly noticed how this cast unwanted shadows across your face. Overhead light above the sink can be problematic, and a solution to this problem is to add a vanity fixture with multiple bulbs, or add two sconce-style fixtures on either side of the mirror. You want there to be enough light so you can see what you’re doing in the mirror, but not so bright that it creates glare. Indirect light can be ideal, and our staff can help you choose the best fixtures.
The Bathtub and Shower Area
One of the most popular upgrades that homeowners make to their master bath is to add a new bathtub and/or shower. If you have the room, you might decide to add a spa-style tub and a separate shower stall so you can soak when you want to and take a quick shower when you need to. The lighting for this area usually includes recessed fixtures that are placed on dimmer controls so you can set the levels where you want them depending on the time of day and the mood you’re in. You don’t always want bright light when you’re trying to unwind in the tub at the end of a long day, and being able to dim the lights can help you relax.
The Water Closet
Many master baths have a separate water closet where the toilet is placed for privacy. Even though guests don’t often use the master bathroom, it can be beneficial to have a sliding door that closes for the water closet. This of course means that you’ll need a new overhead fixture for that section of the bathroom, and a single recessed or flush mount fixture will often suffice. The water closet is often small and one light should provide enough illumination for the space.
Choosing Your Lighting Style
There are countless styles of bathroom light fixtures to choose from, and picking your favorite can seem like a challenge. It can be best to start with a simple idea, such as a color you like, and plan your lighting around that. If you want a sleek, white look that brightens up the room, we can help you choose the best fixtures based on that design style. If you want more color in your bathroom, we can show you multiple fixtures that fit your preferences. What’s important to keep in mind is that you’ll be spending time in your master bath nearly every single day, and you’ll want to pick fixtures that work for you and that you enjoy looking at and using every day.
At Hacienda Lighting, we love helping people discover new fixtures for their bathroom, kitchen, and every room in their house. If you’re remodeling your old master bath, or you’re adding an en suite for the first time, stop by our showroom to find the best lighting options.
