Light is very important in the bathroom. It creates an atmosphere and it must be adapted to the configuration of the room. Good lighting for the bathroom should not fall into extremes ( too bright as in a laboratory or on the contrary too dark ). Do not think however that the lighting should be as functional in the bathroom, it must also be a prime source to create the atmosphere you want. Our advice is to favor 2 light sources. One next to the mirror and another which will be a general source of light.
