When choosing your bathroom lighting, being able to layer it offers you more scope for creativity in this room. With so many bathroom light fixtures this is one area where many feel spoiled for choice! 
But, if you’re simply looking for a quick and easy way to layer your bathroom lighting then plinth lights could just be a perfect choice. A spectacular way to enhance your current lighting scheme, plinth lights light up a bathroom and give it that wow factor.
Here, The Bathroom Showroom offers a quick guide to plinth lights, showing how they can help build your lighting selection,  while showcasing one of the most fabulous ranges available exclusively from our showroom.

What Is a Plinth Light?

Plinth lights are simply decorative light fixtures that are available as kits, strip lights, or individual lights. Designed to provide an effortless and understated lighting addition to a room, plinth lights fit into flat surfaces and will lie flush or offer a slightly projected finish as preferred. Ultimately, the result is a neat and spectacularly low-level illumination where it’s required the most.

What are the Advantages of Plinth Lights in the Bathroom?

Plinth lights are considered superb bathroom lighting additions by many due to their various benefits, including:
  • They encourage a gentle and less harsh lighting solution and are therefore easier on the eye
  • As a softer lighting choice, they lend a wonderful ambient feel to the bathroom 
  • Can be used as a decorative lighting choice and add depth to the room whether at high elevation or low profile
  • Ideal as task lighting choices, plinth lights can illuminate mirrors, shaver lights, bath areas, around the basin, in the wall and ceiling, or even inside the shower unit
