The bathroom is one of the rooms in your home where good task lighting is really essential. The bathroom is where we get ready to face the day as well as prepare for a restful night. It might even be the place where we seek sanctuary from the demands of our everyday life, soaking in a bath or treating ourselves to an at-home manicure. A lot of what goes on in the bathroom involves your mirror, including applying makeup, washing your face, shaving, and so many other personal grooming tasks. All of those tasks should have the right lighting so you can get them done correctly. Without the right lighting, you never know what you might look like when you step outside the bathroom and into the real world.
When it comes to task lighting in the bathroom, the best placement for your lighting is directly next to the mirror and in front of you. A pendant light in the bathroom is only going to provide downlight, and if it’s placed in the back of you it could create shadows on the mirror and hinder your ability to see yourself clearly in the mirror. That’s why placing the lights in front of you and to the side of the mirror is the best option and why so many homes have sconces next to the bathroom mirror.
However, over the last decade lighted mirrors have come back into style and are replacing bathroom wall sconces. We love lighted mirrors; they provide a modern, clean look for your bathroom lighting and provide you with great task lighting to get all of your personal chores done. We sell a great selection of lighted mirrors in our lighting showroom in Houston. Here are some of our favorites!
