Georgina Hobbs. Vanity Lights. February 25th , 2018.
Bathroom vanity lights typically include one light or perhaps two or more above the mirror. Or, there may be lights or sconces on each side of the mirror or medicine cabinet and one ceiling light or a row of recessed ceiling lights over the vanity, depending on the size of your vanity and mirror. Make sure your bathroom mirror is evenly illuminated and free of shadows since this is where applying makeup, shaving and other grooming activities will take place. If you have two bathroom vanities, each one should have the same bathroom vanity lights setup.
Bathroom vanity lights are often overlooked in a bathroom. Artificial light from vanity bathroom lights and general lighting is important during hours when natural light is not available. Without good lighting, the decor and the personality of your bathroom can not be developed properly. And since the day usually begins and ends with a trip to the bathroom, time spent there should be comforting, relaxing and easy to see when grooming.
Vanity strip lights are commonly used as the main source of bathroom vanity lighting because it provides sufficient and proper lighting for specific tasks like hair styling, applying contact lenses, or shaving. Strip lights come in 2, 3, 4 or more bulb placements. Each bulb placement is covered with decorative glass that can be found to fit a specific style or one that can easily blend with general design schemes. Strip light fixtures can also be installed to face either up or down depending on how much light you want directed at the vanity countertop.
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.
General ambient lighting gives your bathroom the most illumination towards the floor, but it will produce more glare than other types of bathroom light fixtures. Task Lighting is a direct beam of light that illuminates a particular area with very workspecific tasks, not intended to light the entire room. Task lighting can be a beam of light directed towards the reading area while in the tub, while shaving, reading, exercising on the treadmill, applying makeup or putting in your contact lenses.
