How to illuminate optimally this piece? And what should you know baths with Chromotherapy? We asked Steve Souverijns of Duravit kindly enlighten our (bathroom) lanterns.
“The therapeutic effects of the bathrooms with Chromotherapy are not proven,” estimated Steve Souverijns from Duravit.
Bathroom lighting depends on different factors. What is the size of the space? Is there a contribution of daylight? How is it designed?
The transformation of the bathroom in wellness area will continue in the future.
“Each manufacturer of bathrooms attached a lot of importance to the quality of lighting”, began Souverijns. “On the one hand, a proper lighting creates atmosphere and friendliness and strengthens the feeling of well-being. On the other hand, there is the practical side. Uniform illumination in front of a mirror or above the sink is essential to taking care of yourself properly and feel good. Women who wear makeup in the mirror will tell you.”
What is LED lighting?

What is a good LED light?
Good lighting LED produces enough lumens to illuminate correctly.
The number of lumens expresses the luminous flux. Higher the number of lumens, more light intensity is strong. In case of LED lighting in front of a sink, we talk to him more often values around 1000 lumens. In addition, the color of the light is also involved. The color temperature is expressed in Kelvins. Ideally, the light has a temperature of 3500 ° Kelvins to produce a hot color. You look directly much less pale than with a functional white light.

It is the reason why, in our product range, we offer ‘tubs with colored light option’ and not ‘bathtubs to Chromo therapy’.
Enough of the sink and the tub. And the rest of the bathroom lighting?
How you can enlighten the rest of the bathroom depends on different aspects. What is the size of the room? Benefits from the light of day? How is it arranged?
