How to Choose a Recessed Light for Damp Locations

Published by Danielle Sherrer on Apr 17th 2024

When it comes to choosing lighting for damp locations like a bathroom shower, several factors come into play to ensure safety, functionality, and aesthetics. Adequate lighting in the shower area not only enhances visibility but also contributes to a more comfortable and enjoyable showering experience while reducing the risk of accidents like slipping and tripping.

Consider the following tips when selecting the perfect recessed shower light for your bathroom:

Assess Available Space

Evaluate the size and shape of your shower to determine the appropriate size and shape of the recessed shower light. Ensure that the chosen fixture fits seamlessly within the available space.

Evaluate Wattage

The wattage of the recessed shower light impacts both operating costs and brightness levels. Choose a wattage that meets your illumination needs without overpowering the space or being insufficient.

Choose the Right Color Temperature

The color temperature of the light affects the ambiance and appearance of the shower area. Select a color temperature that complements the overall lighting scheme in your bathroom for a cohesive look.

Match the Style

Opt for a recessed shower light that aligns with the aesthetic of your bathroom. With various styles available, ensure that the chosen fixture complements other fixtures and decor elements in the space.

Consider the Trim

The trim of the recessed shower light significantly impacts its visual appeal. Choose a trim that harmonizes with the overall design scheme of your bathroom to create a cohesive and polished look.

Prioritize Moisture Resistance

Select a recessed shower light with a moisture-resistant trim or fixture to safeguard against potential damage from water exposure. Moisture-resistant components are essential for ensuring the longevity and safety of the lighting fixture in damp environments.
