Because the bathroom is where the majority of us begin and end our days, it makes sense that it should feel peaceful and clean, providing an opportunity to relax, rejuvenate, and unwind. However, if your dim bathroom does not feel particularly inviting, the right lighting can dramatically improve the space, particularly if you are attempting to create a luxurious spa-like atmosphere. Take a look at our favorite bathroom lighting ideas to assist you in accomplishing just that.
Midcentury Modern-Inspired Bathroom With a Retro Flush Mount
A bright and cheerful yellow bathroom inspired by mid-century modern design by Hudson Interior Designs is finished with a retro star-shaped flush mount ceiling light fixture. The elegant piece is made of brass and features a hand-rubbed antique finish. The vintage-inspired appearance of the fixture is completed by the incandescent Edison bulb.

The Pankonien Group’s large primary bathroom is brightened by shade sconces and a matching shade chandelier. The light fixtures have an old-fashioned feel that pairs well with the rustic accents found throughout the space, including the antique wooden ladder in the corner.
Cage Chandelier in a Chic Black and White Bathroom
Sita Montgomery, an interior designer, describes this chic primary bathroom as one of her favorite spaces in the home she decorated. The opulent freestanding bathtub is framed by a magnificent wrought iron cage chandelier. It complements the space’s black accents, which range from the grout and cabinetry to the patterned floor tiles and window frames.
A Subtle Glass Pendant Light
A river rock feature wall transforms time spent in this bathroom by Rebecca Hay Interior Design into a spa day. The floating wood shelf adds to the earthy feel of the room. Because the glass pendant appears to vanish when not in use, it does not detract from the rest of the space.
3 Types of Lighting in a Modern Farmhouse Bathroom
Three different sources of electric lighting illuminate this pristine modern farmhouse primary bathroom designed by Blackband Design and Home. The entire space is illuminated by recessed ceiling lights. Vintage-inspired glass insulator pendant lights hang above the two vanities. They provide additional illumination for tasks such as tooth brushing and shaving. A rustic wrought iron chandelier hangs above the tub, providing soft illumination when additional ambiance is desired.
Seaworthy Lighting for a Nautical Bathroom
Say ‘ahoy there!’ to Shop House Design’s nautical-inspired bathroom. A trough sink with two gooseneck faucets is mounted on the shiplap-clad walls. Above it hangs a rope-hung mirror that is illuminated by copper cage-style sconces that were once common on sea-going vessels.
Art Deco-Inspired Bathroom With Period Style Lighting
According to interior designer Zoe Feldman, remodeling this bathroom was a study in classic modernism. That is because she desired to pay special attention to the house’s art deco history. Two period-inspired globe pendant lights illuminate the mirrors and free-standing marble vanity.
Industrial Lighting in a Rustic, Country Bathroom
As demonstrated in this bathroom by interior designer Tiffany Farha, farmhouse-inspired furnishings paired with industrial-style lighting make a chic combination. Antique brass wall lamps with pitch black shades hang above the weathered wood vanity.
Understated Light Fixture With Patterned Wallpaper
When a stunning wallpaper pattern is the focal point of a bathroom, follow the lead of the decorating team at Katie Rosenfeld Design. Over the vanity, they installed a simple nickel and glass shade light fixture. What is the reason? It would not detract from the primary feature.
Brass Accents in a Cool Blue and Green Bathroom
Blue and green are refreshing colors that work well in bathrooms. Here, Annie Downing Interiors puts the winning combination to work in a lovely space. The white bath and sink stand out against the sea of blue penny tiles. The brushed brass tub and sink fixtures, as well as the brass pendant light, all contribute to the space’s luxurious feel.
Jewel-Like Bathroom Light Fixture
We adore Nicole Davis Interiors’ ultra-modern bathroom. The sink mounted on the wall appears to float in mid-air. Beautiful brass fixtures make a sophisticated statement. A magnificent brass and glass faceted pendant light floats like a jewel above it all.
Modern Farmhouse Bathroom With an Industrial Task Light
The Pankonien Group’s bathroom exudes a distinct modern farmhouse vibe. A retro-inspired, black industrial task light hangs above the round wall-mounted mirror. It pairs perfectly with the room’s other dark accents, from the patterned floor tile to the charcoal gray grout in the subway tile shower stall.
Bathroom With Metal Shade Brass Pendant
Consider taking inspiration from Mill Haven Homes’ opulent bathroom. The freestanding tub is surrounded by three windows. A pendant light with a chic brass shade is shown above. Combining metals in a bathroom creates a more visually appealing space, as demonstrated here by the chrome tub hardware and matte black door hinges.
Mother of Pearl Light Fixture
We can’t think of a more appropriate light fixture for a beach house bathroom than this mother of pearl chandelier, which was hand-picked by the Blackband Home and Design design team. The luminous shells diffuse light gently, creating a soothing and romantic glow.
