One type of light source you generally wouldn’t associate with a bathroom is fiber optics; however, a creative user on Instructables named Baldr created an incredible lighted star floor in his washroom that resembles a starry night.
This not only looks great but is practical if nature calls in the middle of the night. You don’t want a flash of blinding light when you enter the washroom! The best part is that Baldr has provided step-by-step instructions to create this for your washroom and you also get bragging rights when finished because it’s not a simple DIY project but it’s worth the effort.
Each point of light in this star floor is the end of a fiber optic strand so you can have as few or as many “stars” as you want to create.
You need a strand of fiber for every light.
Unlike traditional tiling which you start in the center of the room, you need to start tiling from where your light source will be plugged in.
There will be bundles of fiber optic cable coming from the light source so this is where you should start.
Now is the time for the grout but special care needs to be taken to not apply grout over the fiber optic ends and block the lighting on the star floor.
The fiber optic lighting on the star floor is “on” all the time but hardly noticeable when brightly lit.
When the lights are turned off, a starry night in his bathroom appears!
Baldr has also created a coffee table with actual star constellations.
The fiber optic lighting behind the stairs looks equally cool.
This project is definitely unique and sure that it would get a lot of compliments from guests.
Please share this “starry night” bathroom floor with your friends and family.
