Bathroom vanity lights are most commonly placed over a sink and above or either side of a mirror. Vanity lights are task lights, specifically designed to give clear illumination for make-up application, shaving or other grooming.
Bathroom vanity lights are usually wall mounted. They are used alongside other light sources in a bathroom, such as oyster lights or spotlights that supply a more general wash of light for the space.
There are a wide variety of styles available to suit your interior and decor style. Designs can range from very simple and functional to detailed and decorative. Vanity lights can be found in a variety of materials and colours, with white and chrome fittings usually the most popular options.
We recommend LED fittings for vanity lights because of the high quality of light output and long lifespan. LEDs are also available in a range of colour temperatures. Our suggestion is to use a warmer colour temperature (3000K) for vanity lights, as this is more flattering. You might also want to make your vanity lights dimmable so the ambience of the bathroom can be adjusted.
Bathroom vanity lights will often have a higher IP rating than general use lights for the rest of the home because of their placement next to a sink.
