How to select appropriate Bathroom Lighting

Bathroom lighting is one of the most important things you install in your bathroom, and once installed, it literally stays with you for years to come. To start with, ask yourself, how bright your bathroom lighting needs to be. Ideally, the light should be bright enough to help you locate the traces of water on the floor. Also keep in mind the color of your bathroom interiors and the texture of the surfaces that could replace light and add more brightness to your bathroom interiors.

Generally it is suggested that you purchase bathroom lighting after you have completed decorating and furnishing the interiors. This helps you place the lighting in the best position and also allows you to buy something that perfectly matches with the bathroom theme. If the bathroom design is not based on any particular theme, then some of the safest options for you would be wrought iron bathroom lighting, antique styled, etc.

Bathroom lighting should also be selected according to the position in which you plan to place the lights. It is also advisable that while buying bathroom lightingyou opt for something with a battery backup. This saves you from any scope of a complete blackout in case of power failure.

Apart from the above mentioned points, you should also consider the obvious-though worth mentioning factors like durability and power saving capability in your bathroom lighting. These ensure that you get best out of the money and continue to save more in future.

If any body have any doubt or suggestion so plzz discuss here and try to find out a complete solution or successful result...................
have a nice day all of you......................

You pick out the lighting when you pick out everything else. So it matches.
You need to run the wires before the walls are up, not after. The boxes are set behind the wall, in location that are predetermined, based on the fixture(s) at hand.
This scenario:

"Generally it is suggested that you purchase bathroom lighting after you have completed decorating and furnishing the interiors. This helps you place the lighting in the best position..."

Makes no sense.
