Hi folks - need some help. Getting a lot of different opinions from lighting stores about the right size of light fixture for vanity and mirror. Attached is a pic of my new bathroom (still in progress). My mirror is 22 "w x 34" h and my vanity is 37" wide. What should the size be for my light fixture? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Should it be wider than the mirror or smaller than the mirror?

Maximum width of the light fixture should be the width of the mirror. Wider than the mirror will make the light fixture look too big.

Thanks - that's what I'm going with. They were pushing me to buy as wide as the vanity and I just couldn't see it! Much appreciated.

Food for thought...I tend to stay away from sconces over mirrors in bathrooms as they can often cast a "down light" which is most unflattering...
