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.
Especially if you are planning a renovation, a vanity light can bring just the right look to your bathroom. The good news is that in most situations, you can change the bathroom lighting cheaply. Adding the right light complements your bathroom decor and gives you the ability to add your own personal touch to the room. Decorative bathroom vanity light fixtures are available in various finishes, including brass, chrome, nickel, or even pewter to coordinate with faucets, sink tops, and other bathroom accessories.
Bathroom vanity lighting can be accomplished using many different types, sizes, and styles of light fixtures. Vanity lighting can come directly from one lighting fixture or from a combination of a few different types of fixtures depending on your lighting needs. Vanity strip, sconces, pendants, ceiling, and recessed are some of the most popular lighting fixtures for the vanity area. Some fixtures are mostly task oriented while others provide general lighting for basic vanity tasks.
You should have both ambient lighting and task lighting in the bathroom. Here are lighting types for providing artificial bathroom light: Ambient Lighting chandeliers, surfacemounted, bathroom vanity lights, wall sconces and recessed fixtures are types of general lighting that illuminate the overall bathroom area. This type of illumination allows you to move around and see safely in the room. These types of bathroom light fixtures should be controlled by dimmers where you can change the intensity of the light for a relaxing feel when you are soaking in the tub, for example.
Make sure, if youre ADDING to already existing wiring and fixtures, that your homes existing wiring can handle the addition of a new or different fixture and extra wattage. This is where its a good idea to have your homes general wiring inspected, but especially that of your bathroom. The worst possible thing could be having to spend extra money to rewire your bathroom because youve bought a fixture that needs different or additional wiring.
