Selecting the right bathroom lighting is not as simple as choosing lighting for your living room or kitchen, as you will need to know which bathroom Electrical zones the bathroom lighting is suitable for.

There are a few factors that you need to consider, such as water and condensation. It is also important to ensure that the light you choose is suitable for the specific bathroom electrical zones in your bathroom. All of this can be overwhelming, but don’t worry, We are here to guide you through everything you need to know.

Firstly, it’s important to note that bathrooms are divided into three different zones. In order to ensure safety, all bathroom fittings must have an IP rating. IP stands for Ingress Protection, which is a system that rates how well electrical equipment can withstand elements like dust and moisture. Here’s a breakdown of the zones and their corresponding IP ratings:

bathrooms electrical zones

  • Zone 0: This zone pertains to the inside of the bath or shower itself. Fittings used in this zone must have a rating of IP67.

  • Zone 1: This area extends above the bath up to a height of 2.25m from the floor. It needs to have an IP rating of at least 44.

  • Zone 2: This area extends 0.6m outside the perimeter of the bath. It also needs to have an IP rating of at least 44.

When it comes to bathroom lighting, practicality is no longer the only consideration for Irish people. They are becoming more discerning and looking for elaborate styles and lights that were traditionally used in other rooms such as the living room or kitchen.

Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood and promoting relaxation in your bathroom. Therefore, it is essential to consider the type of atmosphere you wish to create.
