When it comes to choosing lighting for your bathroom you may face a few obstacles. This is the wettest/steamiest room in the house, hence safety is essential and there are strict guidelines to follow. Due to the dampness of the room there are certain IP (Ingress Protection) ratings which must be adhered to. Do not be daunted by the regulations, as there are lots of different lights to choose from including recessed spotlights, bulkheads, wall lights, decorative flush fittings and even chandeliers. In the IP ratings chart, there are several different zones that determine which light you are able to select. Once you have worked out which are appropriate, you should then ensure the fitting you choose will provide sufficient light to perform everyday tasks like shaving or brushing your teeth, while also ensuring a lighting level which will enable you to relax if taking a bath, for example.
