HOMES An elec­tric mix...

Your bath­room should be a sanc­tu­ary, but it’s also a highly prac­ti­cal room where it’s vi­tal to get the light­ing – and ev­ery­thing else elec­tri­cal – right, says JU­LIA GRAY

a bath­room light is suit­able for.

Some even have a di­a­gram of the zones on the box, al­though you can eas­ily find this on­line.

Lights de­signed for in­ner bath­room zones have en­cased bulbs for safety, but it can be a good idea to have this type of light fit­ting in out­side zones be­cause steam can cor­rode ‘open’ fit­tings over time.

How­ever, the lat­ter tend to give off a lot more light than ‘closed’ fit­tings.

In bath­rooms with­out a win­dow, which is com­mon in flats, an ex­trac­tor is even more im­por­tant and should be switched on ev­ery time you shower or bath.

Ex­trac­tors are usu­ally wired to come on with the ceil­ing light, al­though they can be switched off in­de­pen­dently. fit­ted with an elec­tric el­e­ment may be ideal, as it will dry tow­els with­out the cen­tral heat­ing hav­ing to be on.
