Homeowners will find a variety of vanity light styles. A simple vanity strip features a series of bulbs in a row with glass globe covers similar to those associated with a movie star's dressing room. Strip lights are sold in models with a black, chrome, bronze or stainless steel base. Decorator bulbs offer an alternative to incandescent lights but they provide a lower level of illumination and may add color to light to create a different mood and visual effect.
Most vanity light fixtures are secured above the mirror and shine down upon the user. This works great for mirror viewing as it produces a shadow down and away from the mirror. A typical vanity bar height is just above the mirror about four inches away. A basic height for vanity fixtures is around 78-80 inches off of the floor.
Now you can make a small hole in the wall using a hammer. Make the hole behind the vanity light so that when the vanity is hung, the hole will be covered. Using a pair of needle nose pliers, fish the wire through the hole. Strip the wires and attach them directly to the bathroom light fixture and hang it on the wall according to the directions.
Some bathroom vanity lighting may use special bulbs, which may cause problems when the time comes to change them as they are not commonly sold in stores or their production may have been discontinued. Avoid bright white or yellow bulbs for they tend to be harsh with unrealistic colors and they make the skin look paler and washed out. A neodymium bulb may be a good choice as they imitate sunlight. Some vanity lighting may use halogen lamps since they disperse light, resulting to a softer look but without shadows being casted. Choose some bulbs that are covered with frosted glass to have a more flattering result and better illumination. Fluorescent bulbs with Color Rendering Index of eighty or more can also be used and may be ideal for the bathroom since they generate less heat compared to the incandescent bulbs and would last longer.
