Matching a lighting fixture's style to the bathroom's overall look is always a safe bet. This HGTV viewer used an aluminum gooseneck barn light to illuminate her farmhouse-style bathroom. A budget-friendly find, the outdoor-rated fixture casts plenty of light while adding an unexpected touch that looks right at home.

Lighting a shower area can be tricky — one rule to follow: only use fixtures that are rated for use in damp or wet locations. The three nautical clam-shell style lights along the back wall of this HGTV Dream Home shower are a good example. The bulbs and all electrical components are totally enclosed so moisture isn't an issue.

Designer Tina Muller puts the finishing touch on this spacious, streamlined master bathroom with a show-stopping chandelier. 24 sleek chrome branches end in a low-voltage LED bulb to provide plenty of light while using less energy than standard incandescent or even CFL bulbs.

For this cottage-style bathroom, designer Sarah Richardson chose a pair of glitzy mirrored sconces, instead of a standard bar-style vanity light, to flank the Venetian mirror.
