Bathroom wall lights: Which one to choose ?

Good lighting is important in every room, but perhaps especially so in a bathroom. Here are some of our tips :

Create a relaxing atmosphere with lighting

Make your room as pleasant as possible with lighting that will wake you up in the morning and make you feel relaxed in the evening.
For this, we advise combining two types of light source: generalised and localised. A larger room will require more lights, whereas in a small space you’ll just need to focus on lighting key areas. Take care to avoid dark corners… And take into account the temperature of the light. We recommend a warm light, 2700 – 3000k for a bathroom. Anything above 3000k can quickly look clinical.

Ensure that your mirror is well lit

Whilst some models of bathroom mirrors have an integrated light to directly illuminate the face, this is rarely the most aesthetic option.

The ideal solution is to opt for a pair of sconces arranged on either side of the mirror.

Wall lights placed at eye level offer the advantage of eliminating areas of shadow on the face. Placed vertically or horizontally, the right wall lamp also adds an element of style to a bathroom.

Check that your installation complies with current safety standards

Electricity and water don’t mix. Given the inherent humidity in this room, the electrical installation of the bathroom must comply with current safety rules and regulations.

The bathroom is divided into different zones, depending on the distance from wet areas. Zones 0 and 1 are in direct contact with water and so require specialised and perfectly waterproof lighting.

Zone 2 is not in direct contact with water but very close (0 – 60cm from the taps or shower, up to a height of 2.25m). In this zone all lights must be rated IP44, so that they are protected against sprays of water.

Our wall lights rated IP44

For Zone 3, the furthest away from the taps or shower, you have more freedom, as an IP rating of 20 (standard in all wall lights) will suffice.
