Bathroom lighting can do a lot in terms of improving the over-all look of a bathroom, or generally in accentuating its features and design.

Architectural Digest shared some tips. Electrical Association              http://www.electricalassociation.com/

“Install extra lights based on the activity. Does the room’s overhead fixture not provide enough light to shave in the shower? Add a recessed can light with a watertight seal. Do you apply makeup in the bathroom? Bring in a makeup mirror with a built-in light. Do you want to add personality and atmosphere? Hang a chandelier for visual interest (though it shouldn’t be your main light source). Here are the designer’s tips for choosing bulbs, placing fixtures, and avoiding a haunted-house effect.”

In Airplanes though there is one type of lighting that will surely be appreciated by its passengers.

Engadget.com featured the germ-busting UV-Light System in Boieng Airplanes in one of its posts.

“Boeing recently gathered its engineers and designers to create an airplane bathroom that won’t turn into a smelly, germ-filled nightmare. If you’ve been on long-haul flights before, you know what we’re talking about. What they came up with is a restroom worthy of being pitted against fancy Japanese toilets, one that cleans itself after every visitor by killing 99.99 percent of germs with far UV light. By killing germs, the method also keeps the stall from smelling like a truck-stop urinal. Far UV light is only harmful to microbes and is different from the type used in tanning salons. Still, the bathroom only activates its lights if sensors indicate that there’s nobody inside. As soon as you close the door, the lights pulse and zap germs you might leave behind; the toilet cover even automatically pops up to ensure thorough cleaning. It only takes three seconds to finish the whole process.”

Lights are indeed very important in every bathroom.
