If you're installing a new bathroom in a contemporary style or updating an existing bathroom to a more modern look, you'll want to explore all the options for up-to-date, contemporary bathroom lighting.
Lighting is a key element in bathrooms, which can often be dark and dreary places if light design isn't given enough consideration. Smaller bathrooms in particular have real challenges when it comes to lighting, as they often can't accommodate windows large enough to provide a tremendous amount of natural light. Focusing on lighting design early in the process will help you discover the contemporary lighting scheme that will be right for your bath space.
Contemporary bathroom lighting fixtures are available in a variety of styles, with a few that stand out for their wide availability and attractiveness. Sconces were once the exclusive territory of more traditional themes, but can now be found in blown glass or stainless steel designs that will complement a contemporary approach.
Track lighting is often a feature of contemporary design, and new materials and designs have increased its attractiveness—many contemporary styles house powerful halogen bulbs in stylish rounded or square containers. Finally, pendant lighting or even string lights can be a great complement to a contemporary bath space.
