Playing with lighting in the bathroom, it is easy to divide it into zones. Usually they are separated by the location of bathroom equipment, but equally well the division into zones can be marked by the color and method of bathroom lighting

The most important thing, however, is to decide on the location of devices in the bathroom before the installation in it, so that there is no situation in which, for example, the shower tray will be located too far from the sewer line, because then it will have to be placed on a rise.
