Dimmers are recommended so you can adjust depending on the time of day or on the task you are trying to complete. Sconces are usually installed on the wall directly in front of the vanity but for best results it is recommended that you install them in pairs. For instance, when one is installed on either side of the mirror they provide the area with ample lighting for all types of vanity tasks. Sconces can be purchased with one or two bulb placements. There are many decorative designs to choose from.
When purchasing bathroom vanity lighting fixtures for a bathroom consider how much natural light the space has coming from either a window or skylight. Your lighting requirements become much less if you already have a sufficient natural light source. Night time bathroom usage is going to be your main concern so you will need to purchase a fixture or fixtures that can adequately illuminate the vanity area during dark hours. Keep in mind that it may take just one good light source or a combination of a few to get enough illumination in the bathroom vanity area.

The best reproductions will be made meticulously, first with a pattern on cardboard which indicates numbers for each section of the glass and the color that will be used. The glass for the vanity lights is then traced over the pattern, cut and cleaned, and joined together with copper foil. Once the vanity lights pattern is soldered together and cleaned again, its a completed and quality reproduction.
If you like the look of these vanity lights, realize that they are not original works but skilled reproductions, which is the only way most of us can enjoy the artists style. Few true Tiffany creations exist today, let alone just vanity lighting, and those that do command high prices, up to eight million dollars for one piece, depending on the style, condition and age. Tiffany started out working as a stained glass designer for an interior design company.
