Hi Stacey,

You could do recessed lights over each sink. You should make sure the counter is a light color so light will bounce off of it & up. But I wouldn't count on having really good light for applying makeup or shaving. You might want to get a wall mounted or counter top, lighted makeup mirror.

Thank you. Yes we are doing light counters, white. I'm probably not putting makeup on in there anyhow so should be ok. I have a vanity in my closet for makeup.

What's the approach for lighted mirrors? I have a small bathroom that has an OLD overhead light bar with the old globe bulbs. We are redoing the bathroom and I was thinking of just doing a lighted mirror. Will that be enough for the whole bathroom or will we need more lighting?
