Choosing the Right Vanity Lighting for Your Bathroom

Having good quality bathroom light is essential because it is a room in which you spend a lot of time on a daily basis. Strategically placing your lighting fixtures will help you maximize the space and create the best lighting possible. Of course, you want your bathroom lighting not only to look good, but also to be effective, so take the time to explore your options before you install anything.

Because overhead lighting doesn’t always evenly distribute light throughout an area, bathroom vanity lighting can be a great way to supplement that to ensure you have sufficient, even lighting for things like applying makeup and shaving. Vanity lighting can be implemented via several various types, sizes and styles of light fixtures. Vanity lighting can be directly sourced from one lighting fixture or by forming a combination of fixtures for a more custom result. Choose a lighting fixture that will fit your personality and that will bring together your bathroom’s overall theme.

Vanity strip, scones, pendants, and recessed lighting fixtures are just a few of the most popular fixtures for vanities. Vanity strip lights are the most commonly used because they provide good, even lighting across an area. Vanity strip lighting consists of a line of bulbs in a row with glass globe covers like what you see in a movie star’s dressing room. Strip lights are sold in various colors, mostly commonly with black, chrome, bronze, or stainless steel bases. You can install them either facing up or down in proportion to how much light you would like to be directed at the vanity counter top. Dimmers are recommended for you to be able to adjust the brightness according to the time of day or the activity you are trying to accomplish.
