Lighting 101 FAQs

Downlight & Recessed

Vanity lighting is an essential element for all bathrooms. The selection of additional lights depends on your personal preferences and the available space. Consider the following options:

  • 1. Vanity bar: When wall space is limited, a vanity bar installed above the mirror offers a concentrated glow, effectively illuminating the area. This option ensures adequate lighting for your grooming needs.

  • 2. Sconces: If you have sufficient wall space next to your mirror, sconces can be a stunning choice. They not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom but also provide bright and focused light for grooming purposes.

  • 3. Lighted mirrors: If space permits, lighted mirrors are an excellent addition to any bathroom. These mirrors come with built-in lighting, providing both functionality and style.

Consider your preferences and the available space to determine which option or combination of options suits your bathroom best.

To achieve optimal placement, the centerline of the vanity light should be hung approximately 72 inches above the floor. However, for bathrooms with taller ceilings or for taller individuals, this height can be increased to 80 inches.
