Bathroom: Cast a flattering light in your bathroom vanity area by suspending an eye-catching hanging lamp or cluster of pendants near eye level and about 18 inches from the center of your sink. This unconventional lighting style will eliminate those pesky shadows under your chin, cheeks and eyes. Ceilings Higher Than Eight Feet: If you have ceilings taller than eight feet, be sure to add on three inches for each additional foot of ceiling height.
Bathrooms can also make use of the contemporary ceiling lights with ease. These lights are usually flush mounted to the ceiling and may or may not include a fan in their design. They can be found with the sleek stainless steel fixture that holds onto a clear or white shade. There are also ceiling lights sold that are semi flush in design.
An important property of light fixtures is the luminous efficacy or wall-plug efficiency, meaning the amount of usable light emanating from the fixture per used energy, usually measured in lumen per watt. A fixture using replaceable light sources can also have its efficiency quoted as the percentage of light passed from the "bulb" to the surroundings.
