Have you ever thought of having a statement piece in your master bathroom? Every master bathroom has the same elements, a tub, toilet, and shower. To make a statement let’s add a new layer…a chandelier or semi mounted light.
Finding the right place for your statement is worth the investigation. There are many different local building ordinances. Without checking into your local codes could lend yourself to problems down the road such as when you decide to put your home on the market.
First and foremost your safety is most important. Many cities require the bottom of the fixture to be at least 5 feet above the water’s surface while the tub is filled. Obviously this is to protect us from water and electricity mixing. Checking with a local building inspector or licensed electrician for your area’s code restrictions is a great idea before hanging any light.
If you find an over the tub light is not a solution for you, consider in the middle of the room. Your local building inspector or licensed electrician may like this option better, thus safer. A chandelier in the middle of your master bathroom creates a new element.
