Bathroom fans and lighting are equally important to the Bathroom design objects

Morton Park, December 2008 – “A bathroom extractor fan provides good ventilation, which prevents moisture and excess build-up of mold and mildew”, says Mr. James Chapman of

When asked about the specifications of Bathroom fans, Mr. James Chapman said, “For bathrooms up to 100 square feet in area, it is recommended that a bathroom extractor fan provide 1 cfm per square foot at approximately eight air changes per hour. For proper ventilation, the fan should be left on for around 20 minutes after usage; you may want to install an automatic timer. For an 8’x5’ room with an 8’ ceiling = 40 sq ft, you will need a fan rated at 40cfm. For larger bathrooms install a 150cfm fan so that the air can be pulled through the entire room and exhausted at a central location. Or, you can install multi fans; one over the toilet, in the shower, and over the tub. This second method is very effective and provides ventilation where and when it’s needed, but both methods work well.”

He added that, “Typically the exhaust points should be located over or near the shower or tub and in an enclosed water closet. Sound levels of the extractor fans are measured in sones. The higher the sone level, the noisier the fan. Buy as quiet a fan as you can afford. The way a fan is installed will affect its noise level. A low-sone fan attached to a duct that twists and turns, or is kinked or too small, will be just as noisy as the noisiest model.”

Speaking about the bathroom lighting, Mr. James Chapman said, “The bathroom is where you and your family prepare yourselves to greet the world and so it needs the right kind of bathroom lighting . At the same time the modern bathroom is also a place to relax and where you go to read a book or simply to lie and wash away the cares of the day. Doing it right means achieving a balance between these two things – on the one hand a bright light for practical uses and on the other a softer light for more relaxing moments. In other words, combine task bathroom lighting for those practical moments, ambient bathroom lighting for general use and accent lighting for when you want to highlight certain areas.”
