Bathroom Lighting Guide: Shower and Vanity Lighting

When it comes to interior lighting, bathroom lighting is probably given the least consideration of all the rooms in the house. The average client I meet doesn't think to invest there—save it for the living room or kitchen, they say. I see a lot of baths with inadequate mirror or vanity lighting.

“The customer is always right—and we like to consider the building our client, too, and respond to its character, mood, and spirit,” says Patrick Williams of Berdoulat. A specialist in lyrical and meticulous period restorations, Patrick, when we first met him in 2015, was living in a mid-19th-century East London apartment that he had entirely freed of its recessed halogen lights, laminate flooring, and other “developer rubbish”: see Reinventing the Past with a Salvage Hunter-Upcycler-Philosopher.
