Lighting a wide vanity with one sink
J. Alexander
July 13, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello All,
I'm renovating our powder room. The vanity is 73" wide and the sink is on the far right. The other end has seating to be a makeup area. Currently there is a bar of florescent lights over the length of the vanity mirror. I know I want to remove it, but am not sure what will look right in its place. A wall sconce on each end of the mirror? Hanging pendants? Any ideas would be welcome. PS, the picture is a little alarming. We are keeping the vanity base and replacing the countertop and sink/fixtures. The mirror will be replaced and the cornices removed. The style we're going for is Moroccan. Thanks in advance!!

Any thoughts or have I frightened everyone off with the picture? Lol.

Wow! That is quite Versailles-looking. I'm thinking that you could keep the sink and fixtures in the Moroccan style you're going for. It could fit in nicely. I'll see if I can find you some photos of what I'm thinking of.
In any case, I'm told that light that comes from the sides is the most flattering.

LIGHT COMING FROM THE SIDES IS DEFINITELY THE MOST FLATTERING-- NOT FORM THE TOP.
