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.
The biggest hurdle to installing any bathroom lighting system is to find an electrical source to work from. This can include a fixture or outlet from an existing area. The best bet to installing your own vanity light is to work from an existing ceiling fixture that is already controlled by a switch. This will allow you to easily run a wire to the vanity. You will need access to the area above your bathroom to use this method; otherwise, you may need to call in a professional electrician to install your vanity light.
Lighting around the vanity area must be bright enough to see clearly without putting out a lot of glare that is harsh on the eyes. Bathroom vanity lighting fixtures are available in a variety of styles to suit any purpose.
Bulbs can also be a considering factor. Many light fixtures are replacing conventional incandescent bulbs with fluorescents. While these work well in most cases, they often don't have the bright factor that an incandescent has. Always ensure your fluorescent light bulb over a vanity produces as many lumens as a conventional incandescent bulb produces to get a good task lighting source.
