bath and vanity lighting tips

Keep these tips in mind when you purchase bath or vanity lighting to help elevate the look of your bathroom.

SINGLE BOWL VANITY

For ideal lighting for grooming, or applying makeup, place sconces on either side of the mirror. This helps eliminate shadows on your face. Ideally, they will be placed 28”- 40” apart and roughly at eye level or centered 66” above the floor. This will vary depending on your mirror size.

TWO BOWL VANITIES

If you don’t have enough space to mount sconces on each side of the mirrors; place vanity lights above each sink.

GENERAL LIGHTING

Include some recessed down lights in areas larger than 100 square feet. You can also use close to ceiling fixtures to supplement sconce lighting.

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Don’t forget to have some fun with lighting too! If you don’t want to mount lighting on your mirror consider using pendants to add some visual interest while still being very functional.

You can also add some flair by adding pendants or chandelier above your tub.

Your home is your castle and as such the master bath is yours to do with whatever you want. You can outfit with the latest Grohe faucet, Duravit wash basin, Caroma high perfomance toilets and even put up wallpaper with images of clowns on unicycles. With your guest bathroom, it’s an entirely different story. You have the responsibility of honoring your overnight guest, presumably that you respect, who has been invited into your home. You want the guest bathroom to be at the hospitable, and at the most, a luxurious experience that will let your guest know how much you care. Don’t make the same mistakes that other hosts have made – use this Do’s & Don’ts list as a jumpstart for properly outfitting the guest bathroom and you will be well on your way to being awarded with the “Best Guest Bathroom of the Year” honor – if there is such a thing.

DO install a sink with good design and functionality. The Architec Washbasin Bowl offers angular contours and unique character without taking up valuable space. Its striking features convey a sense of beauty and harmony that is unsurpassed.


DO provide a modern and high performance toilet. Caroma Caravelle Elongated toilet offers contemporary design coupled with advanced performance. With a two button, dual flush system, it boasts a fully concealed trap way and is virtually un-blockable.

DO install a proper showerhead, preferably with a range of adjustments to suit individual users. The award winning Grohe Freehander offers a choice of two spray patterns: normal and massage. Switching from head shower to side shower is effortless with the award-winning Freehander. The ingenious design enables you to alternate between the two positions with one simple movement.

The best mirror lighting surrounds the face with light. This provides light from all sides that minimizes shadows under the chin, eyes, cheeks, and forehead. This does not mean that you have to use ‘Hollywood’ style lights (strips that use the round light bulbs). A wall sconce on either side of the mirror can work nicely. Normally you want the center of the fixture at about 66″ above the finished floor and at least 30″ apart (these specs will vary according to the particulars of the room and fixture). If the mirror is a whole wall mirror you can mount the fixtures right on the mirror. Avoid using ceiling mounted fixtures as the sole source unless the room is very small with light colored walls. Wall sconces like the Bentley collection from Murray Feiss with its smooth curves and contemporary style are a good choice.
