Statement lighting can be another striking way to create a distinctively individual bathroom design. We’re big fans of unique vintage lighting company Industville, who we’ve featured within Heritage’s photography shoots. We’ve asked the Industville team to share their secrets to make bathroom lighting sparkle.
Create an illusion of space
Mirrors paired with gorgeous lighting have always been a focal design element at the forefront of a stunning bathroom. Utilising natural light can brighten up space, but bathrooms without that option should consider mirrors to create an illusion of space. For bigger spaces looking to make a luxury statement, choose a large period-style mirror such as Heritage’s Chesham Grand – an ideal and stylish way to create a spacious feeling.
Opt for statement wall lights
Wall lights are not just useful for illuminating bathroom mirrors, but are a great accessory and add to the detail of creating an overall look, especially in low ceiling rooms. Consider a simple and sleek design like the Vintage Sleek Edison Wall Light, or go more retro with the Orlando Vintage Wire Cage Retro Sconce Wall Light. With a master bathroom design, using a dimmer switch can create mood lighting for a blissful tranquil ambience for relaxing soaks.
Having a small space doesn’t mean limiting your creativity. As the ceiling is the most obvious space for your bathroom lights, you may want to consider a flush mount if you struggle for space. With windowless bathrooms, think about light and airy designs which reflect light such as the Brooklyn Vintage Antique Ribbed Glass Retro Dome Flush Mount or Brooklyn Vintage Antique Ribbed Glass Retro Funnel. But, if your bathroom design is calling for something more industrial try our Vintage Industrial Barn Slotted Flush Mount. These fittings are a great way to add a design element that provides enough light in the space.
Make a statement
To give your bathroom the wow factor it deserves, choose a freestanding bath with traditional ball and claw feet to serve as a great focal point for your bathroom and create a standout statement. Balancing this look out with contrasting industrial lighting can work well in modern and traditional bathroom design schemes.
Stay on trend with gold and copper
For a showstopping bathroom look, add a touch of glamour with Heritage’s Holywell metallic effect bath in gold or copper effect.This gorgeous bath can be perfectly paired with Industville’s brass range lighting to compliment the metallic design features of the bath and tap detail.
For a truly luxe feel, don’t be afraid to accessorise your basin with Hemsby rose gold taps and add an Industville statement light to match. With Industville’s wide range of hand finished pure copper lighting you are bound to find your perfect match.
To create your own bathroom concept, feel free to express your personality and design it to fit in with your lifestyle. Heritage’s freestanding cast iron baths are ideal for a unique touch as they can be easily painted to the colour of your choice. For those looking for the next step to make your bathroom truly yours, Industville offers a customised and bespoke lighting service tailored to your design requirements.

Note: Electrics and water do not mix well so before installing lighting in your bathroom please consult with your electrician. All Industville lights are suitable to be installed outside zone 2 - the area stretching 0.6m outside the perimeter of the bath and to a height of 2.25m from the floor. In addition to the area around a wash basin, within a 60cm radius of any tap. In this zone an IP rating of at least IP44 is required. For IP rated lights please visit http://bit.ly/2y7E93B.
