We see these images everywhere - stunning styled bathrooms with magnificent pendant lighting over the bath.  It's perfect for the "money shot" for a magazine, and is becoming more and more popular with home owners.

The problem begins when your electrician - quite rightly - refuses to install the mains power pendant you've found for electrical safety reasons.

In Australia, AS3000 is the electricians Standard, and it has some very clear rules around lighting in bathrooms - which makes sense - electricity & water are not a great mix when you add a human life to the equation.

The good news is - there is a solution.

At MINT we convert any decorative pendant, 

so you can have your electrician install it safely over the bathtub.

The pendant will create beautiful light

and on a dimmer, can provide that soft warm glow, 

for you to enjoy a relaxing soak.

"HOW"......I hear you ask???

We can take ANY 240V rated pendant

and rebuild it to comply with.....

Australian Electrical Safety Standards and Australian Luminaire Standards for wet areas.

So the key point is this - yes, it is possible to hang a pendant over your bath and create that beautiful high end bathroom you desire - you just have to know the rules, and make sure your pendant fits the criteria.  

More good news....we can help you from anywhere in Australia
