I'm trying to find a light for our bathroom but they are all frosted patterned glass and chrome blocks...

Aibu to think bathroom lighting is ugly and there's a restricted choice?!

Wanted something like this

Agree it's difficult to find something nice that can cope with steam sad

Why don't you buy the ones you like?

Because I can't find anywhere that sells them, found these on Pinterest.

they have to be bathroom standard to withstand steam and they are all so cheap and dated looking, yet pretty expensive!

We're getting recessed spotlights fitted as I'm sick of trying to find a nice bathroom light.

How about visiting a bathroom showroom and asking for a lighting catalogue? They will have a better selection than B&Q, Homebase etc. Have you tried John Lewis? They sometimes have nice things (other times not so much)

Agree, we moved into our house with a break bulb and spent 5 years trying to find something to warrant replacing it with. I moved out and left it bare. (It was on the ceiling so I couldn't use a pendant,)

We have spotlights in ceiling.

Thanks all, like the ikea selection, can always rely on Scandi style!

Spotlights are a really good alternative.
