Don’t limit lighting to downlights. Depending on the location consider wall sconces or uplighting to create a softer ambiance and avoid potentially harsh downlighting that can cast ominous shadows.
All-around lighting includes general lighting and natural light. You want to ensure that at any time of day there is enough light for everyone to effectively use the space without incident and that any dark areas are minimized.
If you enjoy art in your bathroom accent lighting will show it off best. Recessed directional lights provide focused illumination for each piece of art — or in this case for an alcove dedicated to a sculptural bouquet of flowers.
