In order to achieve a functional bathroom lighting arrangement, it is important to layer the light by adding a dynamic installation of ceiling lights and wall lights. The first area to focus on lighting is the vanity. Whether the mirror is small and round or long and rectangular, it needs to be fully illuminated from all angles to function properly. To diminish any unwanted shadows, the best vanity lighting arrangement is two bathroom wall sconces on either side of the mirror and a vanity light or bath bar centered above it. This arrangement of bathroom light fixtures casts the bright, task lighting needed for putting on makeup, shaving, and brushing your teeth.

The lighting around the mirror can also be elevated. Instead of traditional bathroom vanity lighting, mount a decorative bathroom light with exposed bulbs above the mirror for a modern industrial feel. Or consider matching the finish of the bathroom lights to the sink and bathtub’s hardware to create a cohesive, polished look. Another way to creatively illuminate a vanity is bathroom mirrors with lights. By combining the mirror and lighting into one, this bathroom light fixture not only is a high-tech upgrade but a compelling space-saving solution for small bathrooms.

Another important tip when lighting the vanity is to avoid mounting a ceiling light directly in front of the mirror. An overhead light in this area could result in uneven, blotchy lighting making getting ready in the morning difficult. Instead, mount bathroom ceiling lights in the center of the room to cast ambient light throughout the space as well as soften the bright light cast from the vanity lights. A flush mount ceiling light with a frosted diffuser will evenly distribute light throughout the room.
Proper lighting in a bathroom makes all of the difference. From getting ready in the morning to unwinding after a long day, bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in the home, and the correct bathroom lighting is essential to completing tasks or setting the ambiance. Effective bathroom lighting is made up of three parts: ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. Ambient lighting provides the general light used for moving around, getting dressed or cleaning, while task lighting is brighter, more directional light used to illuminate specific activities such as brushing your teeth or washing your face. Accent lighting ties it all together by illuminating the dark areas or highlighting a decorative detail in the room.
