A common mistake that consumers make when selecting lighting for the bathroom is not installing adequate lighting around wall mirrors and vanity areas.
Not only will good lighting make your space more pleasant and comfortable looking, it’s also essential for applying make-up and grooming.
- With larger mirrors or wall spaces, look to use 19”-24” wall light fixtures, or larger, to light the area from above. Halogen bath lights, which are brighter, are also worth considering.
- When using a single bathroom sconce on either side of a mirror, the recommended hang height is somewhere around 60” off the floor and 30” apart.
- Bath bar lights need to be mounted somewhat higher above the floor, around 70”-75” high. If extra lighting is needed in other parts of the room, LED recessed cans offer an energy-efficient, focused option.
