Bathroom Lighting Options Around Mirrors
Our expert has recommended lighting on either side of a mirror for flattering bathroom illuminations, but are there other options?
Vanity mirrors which are backlit with dimmable LEDs can provide even, flattering illumination.
I know that you recommend flanking a mirror with sconces for task lighting at the sink. Is there an alternative that is a little cleaner looking architecturally?
How about floating the mirror out from the wall and installing linear LED lighting behind it? This would be especially good for vanities with two sinks where you don’t want the wall cluttered up with two pairs of sconces.
