A bathtub filled with bubbles, aroma candles lit all around you, with soft music playing on the stereo, and the lights are dim and colorful; with such a bath setting, you wouldn't want to get out of there for at least an hour. Lights accentuate the feeling of a particular room, and the bathroom is the best room in the house to install these lights. You can style your bathroom in any way you want and give it a completely different look with just the light arrangements.
Like your bedrooms, you can definitely add a personal touch to your bathrooms as well. The way you want it to look and feel is completely your choice. Some people go for a design with pictures, frames, and flashy lighting, while others love to give it a more stylish and formal touch with mirrors and dim lights. Even if you paint the room in a particular color, the lights can make a huge difference as they reflect on the walls and ceiling to give a different color entirely.
Small Bathrooms
Small bathrooms are a common sight in many homes. This doesn't mean that you don't have much of a choice to design them; you can have beautiful lights in them too. Small bathrooms are perfect to get sconces installed. There is a variety of designs in these sconces, and you can get elegant ones which will match your interiors and colors. Victorian metalwork looks very beautiful when installed on white or ivory walls. They can give a cozy, authentic, and classy look, and change the appearance with their unique designs.

Another great idea is pendant lighting or fancy chandeliers. They look very graceful and attractive. You can have designs which can make the bathrooms a little personalized, classy, and neat. They provide enough light, so you don't need to install any other lights. They are quite inexpensive too. If you want to have some more lights that will make the bathroom more interesting, you can have lights around the mirror, sink, shower, and tub. White lights don't look as impressive as colored ones, so it is suggested that you go with the latter.
Large Bathrooms
If you are the kind of person who loves to have a relaxing bath in a grand bathroom, you can use the ideas mentioned above to install sconces and chandeliers to accentuate the colors of the room. Scones come in all shapes and sizes, in bright colors and designs. Mirror and bathtub lighting looks great with colored bulbs; you can also add some colored lights in other places you think will look better in bright and beautiful lights.

Another very attractive way for light arrangements can be to install track lights. As large bathrooms have a big ceiling and lots of space, track lights will look very colorful and sophisticated. These lights look very sleek and come in many shapes and sizes for you to choose from. They can even be coordinated with background music, or simply be set to change at particular intervals. They look rich and grand underneath a wooden plank or behind a glass setting.
Your bathroom can have a modern as well as old Victorian feeling with the kind of lights you choose to install. Choose the best style, and they are sure to fetch you quite a few compliments from your guests.
