Energy-Efficient Lighting: Bathroom Remodeling Tips That Save Money
For years, the established trend in bathroom design has been to utilize incandescent lighting fixtures, rather than fluorescent lights. The incandescent bulbs provided even, shadow-free lighting that was ideal for grooming, while the fluorescent bulbs of the past were noisy and could flicker, creating inconsistent light.
Today’s technological advances, as well as consumer demand for energy-efficient lighting options have led to the development of new fluorescent fixtures and designs that provide accurate coloring, are dimmable, and consistently cost less to run than their incandescent counterparts.
If you’re unable find a fluorescent option that suits your needs, you could consider halogen as another efficient choice. And don’t forget natural light, perhaps the most efficient option of all! If you’re remodeling your bathroom, consider adding windows or skylights to let in warm sunlight each morning. Frosted glass can provide privacy, while still lighting the room.
Whichever option is right for your bathroom, Handyman Matters is here to help you create a brand new look for your bathroom, while lowering your energy costs at the same time.
