The choice of the right bathroom vanity lighting is important. If it is not sufficient, you won’t be able to see what you’re doing. If it is too bright, it will glare issues. Here are a few tips on choosing the right bathroom vanity lighting.
Choose bathroom vanity lighting with color rendering index 90 or higher. Incandescent or halogen lights render colors the most accurately.
LED lights are a good energy-efficient light source. Make sure you choose LED bathroom vanity lighting with color rendering index of at least 90.
Choose bathroom vanity lighting fixtures with a warm color temperature of 2700K to 3000K. Warm color temperatures are more flattering than cool ones. Don’t go above 3500K.
If you want to install wall sconces on each side of the mirror, mount them at about 60 inches from the floor and about 28 inches apart.
If you’re installing a bathroom vanity lighting fixture above the mirror, it needs to be mounted at about 78 inches from the floor.
