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.
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.
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.
Proper placement of vanity lighting is crucial. If the fixture is located right above the vanity, it can cause glare that makes it difficult to see. Raising it up higher can solve this problem. If the fixture is placed too far away, the light will be too dim. Homeowners can experiment with different locations until they find just the right spot.
