A popular bathroom lighting fixture today is the bar light. These are a series of small torchieres which are mounted on a metal bar that is attached to the wall above the sink in the bathroom. These flights use glass shades which are upward or downward facing. These lights look more antique and would be great for your bathroom if it matches your bathroom style. They are more suited for ambient lighting.

Vanity lights are commonly used in bathrooms for tasks such as washing hands, shaving and brushing teeth etc. These lights are installed above the sink under normal circumstances. If you want more light, it is best to install two vanity lights above the sink, one on each side of the mirror in the bathroom. This way you are able to make the best use of installing vanity lights.

Recessed light would look great in a bathroom if installed in the correct spot. These lights are best at places where you don’t require much of task lighting as with the sink area. Recessed lights are great above the bathtub in order to guarantee enough light for showering purposes.

Wall Sconces are used in bathrooms for ambient lighting purposes. You should first make sure if your bathroom is big enough for ambient lighting before purchasing this kind of lighting fixture. There are some people who prefer to install wall sconces above the sink instead of vanity lighting. One problem with wall sconces is that they usually direct the light upwards. But at the sink, you would want the light directed downwards. This is the problem in installing wall sconces above the sink.

Currently, chandeliers are also extremely popular as a bathroom lighting fixture. This is even more common where people want a luxury design for their bathrooms. But your bathroom should be big enough and high enough to install a chandelier. No one would liked to be hit on the head by a chandelier in their bathroom every time they forget to duck. This is why you need to carefully consider the measurements of your bathroom before deciding to install a chandelier in the bathroom.

The heat light is another popular lighting fixture in today’s bathrooms. They can be mounted on the ceiling to eliminate steam and odors from the bathroom. They are technologically improved to achieve these tasks quite effectively. They can be set up to different temperatures too.

The aforementioned are some of the various types of bathroom light fixtures which are quite popular currently.
