Can you hang a pendant light over the bathtub, in Australia?? YES you can!!
We see these images everywhere,
stunning styled bathrooms with magnificent pendant lighting over the bathtub
It's the perfect magazine "money shot"
and you want that look too?
well you should have it!
the problem begins when your electrician,
and QUITE RIGHTLY so.....
and refuses to install the beautiful pendant you've purchased
"But WHY"?? you ask
for electrical safety reasons, of course!!
In Australia, AS3000 is the electricians Standard
and it has some very clear rules around lighting in bathrooms
which makes sense,
because electricity & water are not a great mix
and when you add a human life to the equation
well (#*}#%*@) NO it's not good!!
but we have the solution.....keep reading
The solution is......
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.

and we can convert your pendant!!
So Yasss, it is possible to hang a pendant over the bath
and create that beautiful high end bathroom you desire,
