What is the best lighting over vanity? Are side lights next to mirror

better? What about recessed lights over area? Thanks!
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
We recommend vertical illumination on the sides of the mirror whenever possible for the most flattering light for the face (read: no harsh shadows). Recessed ceiling downlights are a nice addition to the vanity lights when mounted above the sink about 12" from the wall.

To get more information on the subject, you can read our articles on bathroom vanity lighting and on layered lighting design for bathrooms, written by our ALA certified lighting experts.

We also carry a wide selection of bath bars, wall sconces, and bathroom vanity lights to suit a variety of tastes.

I hope this helps!
Feel free to call one of our expert lighting consultants. (866) 954-4489
