Hallway, bathroom, toilet lamp with integrated nightlight
The lighting for the nightly way to the toilet (after you have already slept and your eyes have therefore become accustomed to the darkness) is not optimal ly realized in many homes. It is too dark (dangerous) or too light (unpleasant).
The illumination is often too weak or too patchy, because the light of night lights possibly used * is not sufficient in all places (→ risk of impact, tripping, falling), or it is too bright,
because the normal hallway, bathroom, toilet lights will be used (→ glare, problems with falling asleep again).
Ideally, the entire path should therefore be illuminated evenly and bright enough so you can walk, but certainly not brighter than necessary.
* Night lights are often not a good solution, since sockets are rare. In hallways they are often hidden behind cabinets etc.; in toilets, there are sometimes no sockets at all.
