I have 2 storage towers with a 27" vanity between - I 'm putting a light bar over the vanity mirror, how far above the mirrors top edge should lighting be placed?

Depends on the mirror too. I feel the light should be at least 6 inches from an 8' ceiling and as low as 12' from an 8' ceiling..you want the light to bounce off the ceiling a bit to help soften the effect.

I didn't even think of that part of the equation. Thanks so much!

Sorry but I don't have a pix. Actually I'm super new to the computer so I'll just have to get my daughter to do that for me this weekend. Thanks though for trying to help
