Your bathroom should be an inviting place where you have relaxing moments of solitude, not just a room that you rush in and out of because it’s not very appealing. If you are not lucky enough to have optimal natural lighting in your bathroom, then you will want to trick your eyes with these clever tips.

 

1. Lighting

Make sure there is sufficient lighting in the bathroom and that it plays up the areas you want to see. Bright lighting at eye level in the vanity area is key and lower lighting near the bath tub is ok. Consider changing existing fixtures or adding lamps and candles.Lighting
