A coworker recently redid his bathroom. Of all the things they replaced, he said the very best investment was a dimmer switch for the lights.
I had never really thought about it, but I can see the value. My bathroom has a Hollywood Barbie strip of lights which could probably land a plane. They’re far too bright early in the morning and late at night. I keep a small nightlight plugged in to ease the transition in the morning.
A previous owner must have had the same thought. When I first looked at the house, there was a very odd dimmer switch in the bathroom. At some point between the inspection and move-in, it stopped working, so I replaced it with a standard switch.
I’m tucking this away for when the bathroom project becomes reality.
We installed a dimmer switch in one of our bathrooms. It is a great idea!
