Bathroom Lights

Bathroom Lighting - Ceiling, Vanity & Wall Lights

Thinking of renovating or redecorating bathroom? Bathroom lighting often gets neglected. Well-designed lighting will not only enhance a space and create a luxury feel, but it will also make the bathroom shine and increase its value.

Effective bathroom lighting will give enough light to perform daily personal hygiene, and carry out activities such as hair styling, applying makeup, brushing teeth, shaving as well as illuminating the entire space.

It requires special attention and great care choosing bathroom lighting as there are strict rules and regulations (AS/NZS3000) for installing bathroom lights in Australia and New Zealand.

With a varied choice of bathroom downlights, bathroom wall lights, bathroom spotlights and bathroom vanity lights, we can assist you through the product selection process.

If a light on our site catches your eye and you’d like to use it for bathrooms, please contact us to enquire!

Australian Bathrooms Lighting Requirements Zone Diagram

Australian bathrooms lighting requirements, regulations

When water is near electricity, we generally admit it’s potentially dangerous. Zones are split up to define areas with precise measurements to keep people safe. Each zone has its own rules on what can and cannot be installed. It is important to understand the rating by which bathroom lights are classifiedcheck IP rating details. 

Zone 0 anywhere inside the bath or shower. Any lights used in this zone must be low voltage, (max 12v) and be completely immersion proof. Lights designed for showers must be carefully fitted according to the instructions.

Zone 1 requires a minimum of IP45, but it is generally accepted that IP65 fitting is to be used.

Zone 2 IP44 rated fittings are required when located inside the area.

Outside Zones are anywhere outside zones 0,1 and 2. There are no special IP requirements in this zone. However, we suggest using a light with an IP rating of at least IP20. 

Bathroom Ceiling Lights

The process of choosing bathroom overhead lighting can be overwhelming. Bathroom downlights are an excellent choice for brightening the shower, tub and sink areas.

There are two types of downlights commonly used for bathroom lighting.

Zone 1  Bathroom Downlights

The recommended bathroom lights in this area are IP65 downlights. With protect against low-pressure jets of water from the shower, IP65 recessed downlights can be used above shower cabins and bathtubs. The most popular IP65 waterproof downlights are: Poseidon (recessed), Amphitrite(recessed), Ariel(recessed) and Yuka (surface mounted) downlights. 

Zone 2 Bathroom Downlights

IP44 rated are designed for use in bathrooms and other environments where water spray is a risk. We supply a wide range of IP44 downlights, check our full downlight range for inspiration.

There is no need to use IP rated fittings in Outside Zones. However, if there is any chance of a direct water jet being used for cleaning purposes in zones, an IP 65 rated fitting must be used.
