As Autumn begins to turn our focus indoors and consider updates we may want to make in various spaces, we know that Lighting is a great option for maximum results. If you would like to start with a smaller project, your bath Vanity lighting is a good place to begin.

All "Vanity" want to light your Bath Vanities in such a way as to produce good, useful, efficient and stylish room lighting. You have many can layer the light with overhead fixtures, use sconces beside the mirrors, hang pendants, or use a wall light above your mirror.

This space is likely used day in and day out, multiple times a day, for multiple tasks, by multiple people in your home. This makes your choice in bathroom vanity lighting ever more important. We’ve got a few ideas for making the space best work for you.


A go to for lighting a bathroom vanity is two vertical sconces on either side of the mirror. Using two ensures enough illumination for grooming and other everyday tasks. We recommend lights are placed about 2 feet apart and 60-65 inches off the floor, depending on your height, to frame your face.
