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.
