Get all the information you'll need on vanity lighting, and prepare to create an attractive and luminous lighting scheme for your bathroom vanity.
By: Sean McEvoy
Vanity lighting is an essential consideration when designing a bath space. Since the bathroom vanity is often the place you'll start your day, you want the lighting scheme to banish dark shadows and help create a bright and welcoming mood in the bathroom.
Bathroom vanity lighting is available in a wide variety of styles, from ultra-modern to antique. You'll likely want to match the vanity lighting to the overall style of your bathroom, since light fixtures that are a radical style departure can be a bit jarring visually. To do this, consider fixtures like sconces for a more traditional design, or sleek, tubular fixtures for a more modern approach.
Another consideration to keep in mind when choosing vanity lighting is how much light your bathroom requires. Some bath spaces are dim affairs that require serious wattage to brighten them up—in this case, make sure you choose fixtures that can accommodate the high-watt bulbs required to do the job. On the other hand, if your bathroom is already light and airy because of abundant natural light, the vanity lighting can be more decorative and likely doesn't need to be as bright.
