    Install a bright white SceneSwitch bulb bright enough to energize your morning routine. With SceneSwitch you can even dim the brightness with your existing switch, for a more calming feel in the evening.

    Bathroom mirror wall lights

    Sufficient functional lighting is needed in front of the mirror. Place lights above and to the sides of the mirror, in order to reduce shadows on your face while shaving or applying/removing makeup. We recommend our vanity globes for a decorative upgrade to your bathroom.

    Overview of IP values in the bathroom
    Bathroom light bulbs from Philips are designed for humid environments and are completely safe to use. When it comes to lighting there are three options, UL-dry, UL-damp and UL-wet.  We advise to choose either UL-wet or UL-damp. The closer you need to place a bulb to the source of water, the closer to UL-wet should be.
