Festival of Lights: Day 7

Lighting a Bathroom 

To light a bathroom with the desirable amount of light for the vanity/mirror, to avoid shadows, install a bathbar at least 24 inches wide over the mirror, plus two wall sconces ( one on either side of the mirror) at least 60 inches above the floor.

If you have a double sink vanity, use a bathbar that is almost as wide as the mirror, or two fixtures ( one mounted over each sink).  The bathbars should be mounted 78 inches from the floor, centered over the mirror.

If yo have a very large bathroom, beside the vanity/mirror lighting, you will probably need an additional flush mount, semi-flush fixture or even a small chandelier for a designer touch.
