Task lighting radiates increased illumination, which makes it an ideal type of lighting for bathrooms. Since it should be a place of safety for the multitude of tasks users do, we recommend dimmable fixtures with a high lumen output for clearer vision while avoiding headaches.

Color temperature is the color of light radiated by a fixture. It is measured in Kelvin (K), from 1,000K (candlelight) up to 10,000K (daylight). The lower the color temperature, the more your light illuminates orange. The higher the color temperature, the more blue the light output. The most appropriate color temperature for modern bathrooms ranges from 3,000K (Warm White) to 4,000K (Daylight).


Color Rendering Index (or CRI) is how accurate a color looks when illuminated under a source of light, compared to natural light. With CRI evaluated from 0 (Poor) to 100 (Excellent), we recommend adorning your modern bathroom with fixtures that have a high CRI of at least 90, which is the standard CRI for all Juniper fixtures.
