Lighting for my powder room!

January 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are building and the electrician wants to know where all the lights are going. I wanted to have sconces flanking the mirror in my powder room...HOW HIGH do I set the sconces?? I'm 5'11" and tend to put things too high. Since this will be the bath visitors will be using, I want to get this right for my friends :)

Depends on your mirror but 5'6 is comfortable for us. My hubby is 6' and I am only 5'. However we never buy scones that face only down and never dark shades in a bath. I think 5'10 inches is more common.

It depends on whether the electrical connection for the sconce is at the top or bottom or in the middle. Select your sconces and then arrange for the sconce to have its middle at 66" above the floor. You can see a big difference in the position of the electrical connection on the two sconces below.
