Lighting Upgrade – The Bathroom

I often say and write about the importance of good lighting. I have written a couple of articles on lighting and how to choose the right lighting for your space. You can find one of those articles here.  This past weekend, I decided to take my own advice and do a lighting upgrade – the bathroom.

Our master bathroom still had what I consider builder-grade lighting in one area. It was nothing special and frankly did not provide very good lighting as it only had one light bulb.  While on Amazon a few weeks ago, I found a light that I actually liked and decided to order it. Sometimes when you have Bently taste on a Volkswagen budget, it is difficult to find what you like at a suitable price. 🙂  I figured I couldn’t go wrong because it was on sale and I was right. I got a good bargain in this light because I think it is very pretty. It has been sitting in a box at the house for over a week now and finally, hubs put it up for me.

This is the light fixture that was in the area.

As you can see, there is nothing special about it. Oh, and by the way, this fixture is also in my hallway and will be switched out soon. By the way, I had to take the picture of the one in the hall because hubs took the one in the bathroom down before I took the picture. But they are both the same.


This is the old fixture all lit up.

One bulb and it doesn’t put off very much light. Ok for a hallway but not for a bathroom.

This is what I have now.

And this is the fixture all lit up. It has two bulbs which gives more light and the globe has a sort of amber glaze which makes the lighting softer.

Have I said that I love the upgrade? Well, I do. It is funny how something so small can make such a huge difference in the feel of a room, But I truly believe there is nothing like paint and lighting to transform a room from just a room to a cozy space.

As I said, I am also going to change the one in the hallway but I haven’t found exactly what I want yet. However; I do have a small chandelier for my closet project that I can’t wait to share with you. I should start that project within a couple of weeks or so.

    We changed around our outside space. This time of year in Italy it is still 24C during the day (75F). I have a lovely upper terrace area with a roof that is open on three sides with great views and sheltered from the wind – it gets the sun all day. So now that has been transformed into an autumn living area.

    Lighting really does make such a big difference–the quality of the lighting and the beauty of the fixture both. Your new one looks very nice. My husband and I are gearing up to fix up my exercise room. The biggest part of the project is emptying all the “junk” out of the room first. Yikes! Thanks for sharing your project on #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty!

    I have a fascination with light fixtures. I am slowly changing out all the ones in our house. And yes you certainly need more than a single bulb light fixture in a bathroom! Can’t wait to see what you pick out for the hallway.

    Hi Nikki – you are a girl after my own heart. I think I am becoming fascinated with light fixtures as well. 🙂 I will certainly let you know when I make my choice for the hall. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    We are long overdue for lighting upgrades. Our kitchen has the dreaded ceiling fan light combo and I hate. Love your bathroom fixture.
