We’re also here to help make sure that you really get the most out of each piece you buy from us. When it comes to your bathroom vanity lighting, there are a few things to consider. Vanity light placement isn’t solely about what looks best. Properly places lights above the vanity give you the best lighting as you groom yourself and get ready for the day. If the vanity lights are positioned too high or too far apart, you’ll get some shadows on your face that make it difficult to get a true image in the mirror. Certain guidelines can help you position the lights, but it will really all come down to your specific bathroom setup.
Once you’ve chosen your bath vanity lights from Lighting & Locks, you then must decide if you want the vanity lights mounted above the mirror or on the sides. Sconce vanity lights are meant to go beside the mirror, and bar lights are meant to go above.
The general rule for a vanity light over the mirror is 75 to 80 inches above the floor. Lights on the sides of the mirrors typically go at eye level, or about 65 to 70 inches above the floor. Hang them with about 30 to 40 inches between the two side lights.
