PS: The chandelier above the tub adds such a polished touch to the space. Do you have any tips for choosing pendants, chandeliers, or flush lighting that's functional but stylish?
KP: When it comes to lighting, I view the bathroom as if it were any other room in the house, one where you would add fixtures with flair, interest, and character. It's really easy to get stuck in the typical bathroom lighting rut — I think this comes out of fear that bath-specific lights need to be purchased because of the damp atmosphere. Although there is something to be said for taking moisture into consideration, proper air circulation will solve this issue.
The most important consideration when choosing bathroom lighting is functionality. For example, if you have a single sconce above your mirror, be sure to choose a downward-facing sconce to maximize your lighting. Or if you only have one pendant light centered in the space, go for a hanging fixture, or semiflush, that includes two or three lights to brighten up the space. You'll want as much light near the vanity mirror as possible!
