Whether you're installing a new bathroom in a modern style or updating an existing bathroom to a more sleek and contemporary look, you'll want to explore all the options for modern bathroom lighting.

Bathrooms almost always run the risk of being dark and dreary places—in particular, smaller bathrooms have real challenges when it comes to lighting. That's why it's so important to focus on this design element early, and discover the modern bathroom lighting scheme that will be right for your bath space.

An expansive range of modern bathroom lighting fixtures is available, but you'll want to start by exploring a few common styles. Sconces, once only available in more traditional styles, can now be found in blown glass or stainless steel designs that will complement a modern theme. Track lighting is often a feature of modern design, but it doesn't have to be garish and reminiscent of a 1970s basement—many contemporary styles house the lights in stylish rounded or square containers. Finally, pendant lighting can be a great modern touch in any bath space.
