When we bought our home, there were seven lights installed:
- One in the kitchen
- One in the hall
- One in the bathroom
- One in each room of the basement
We had to rely on lamps in all of the other rooms. Over the years we have added light fixtures and a ceiling fan, but we still have the original medicine cabinet in the bathroom.
When I switched from incandescent light bulbs, the bathroom was noticeably darker. In order to brighten the space, I placed two small, oval mirrors under each light bulb. It reflects the light up to the ceiling, where it bounces around the room.
It really helped.
