Once you've found a suitable ceiling light to access the power from, you will need to run a power line to feed the vanity light. For this you will need plenty of 14-2 wiring to run from the light source to the vanity area. Don't attach any wires to the fixture just yet. Run the power wire directly to the wall where the vanity light will be located. Drill a ¾" hole through the top plate of the wall. Now fish down enough wire to reach the vanity area behind the wall.
Vanity lights should create a balanced lighting, neither too dim nor too bright. A large bathroom may need at least two to five lights. Strip lights may be the best type for this as it lights up the whole vanity and can be put in either to shine up or down. For a small bathroom, on the other hand, a sconce or a single vanity light installed at either sides of the mirror may be sufficient. A dimmer could be added to adjust the light depending on the time of day. The lights should not be wider than the vanity table or cabinet but may be wider than the mirror. If the vanity is long or has a two sinks, more than one fixture would bring out better results.
