5 Beautiful Bathroom Wall Lights
Part of what makes any bathroom stand out is the lighting. Whether it's lighting on the cabinet, bathroom wall lighting or around the floor area to give some subtle illumination in the evening, getting the bathroom lighting right can really give your bathroom the wow factor.
We see so many striking bathroom wall lights that are placed above the sink to create a great feature, so we wanted to pick out some of our very favourites to share with you.
Are there any particular safety considerations when it comes to bathroom wall lighting?
Before you go ahead and choose your bathroom lighting, make sure that your light fitting will be safe to use in the bathroom.
Where there is water in close proximity to electricity, you must ensure that your light fitting meets regulations that can be safely used in the bathroom.
Light fittings are given a two digit IP number and it is the second of the two numbers that indicates it's protection against moisture, with 0 no protection and 8 submersed in water.
For a bathroom wall light which is within 0.6 metres from the tap, you should look for an IP44 rating which offers protection against splashing.
So whether you want a vintage look or a modern contemporary bathroom light fitting, we have chosen of our favourites which are all rated IP44 as a minimum.
Elbow Bathroom Wall Fitting: £85, Pooky
We adore these brass bathroom wall lights from Pooky which have an IP44 rating.
They are available in four shades including this gorgeous brass which is just so on trend right now. Teamed with simple elegant tiles they will create a beautiful art deco look.
They are also available in a smaller size too, so there are lots of options.
Concrete Bathroom Wall Light: £75, Cox & Cox
If you want the ultimate industrial look in the bathroom, then these concrete wall lights by Cox & Cox are a great choice.
They have a really simple design and can be fitted either up or down, depending on which way you prefer.
They are IP44 tested and so are perfect for the bathroom wall.
Pimlico Bathroom Wall Light in Satin Nickel: £45, Rockett St. George
These dinky little lights would look great in both contemporary and traditional bathrooms...they are so elegant and the little pull feature gives them a slightly vintage twist.
The bathroom light fitting has a simple design with the combination of the fluted glass and satin nickel, and we think it's priced really well too.
It's also IP44 rated, so will meet the standards of being safe around the sink area.
Swan Neck Bathroom Wall Light In Copper: £95, Industville
This light is IP65 rated, which makes it perfect for the bathroom area above the sink.
We love the round bulb with the elegant shaped neck and the lovely copper tone gives a wonderful vintage look. It's also available in black and brass for other bathroom colour schemes.
Siren Bathroom Wall Lamp: £39, Made.com
Another light which is IP44 rated, we adore the combination of the black and brushed brass for a stylish contemporary look.
The rounded bulb gives off a soft glow which is perfect for subtle lighting in the bathroom.
They are also reasonable priced at £39 per light, so they are a great option to bring your bathroom up to date.
