Similarly, you may ask, how high should the light be above the mirror?
THE LIGHTING The standard height for vanity lighting above bathroom mirrors is 75” to 80” from the finished floor to the center of the light fixture.
Subsequently, question is, how high should a vanity light be installed? It should be placed 75 to 80 inches above the floor and, like all vanity lighting, contain at least 150 watts — ideally spread over a fixture that's at least 24 inches long so that the light will wash evenly over the hair and face.
Then, how high should the medicine cabinet be above the vanity?
The installation height for medicine cabinets is generally accepted to be 64 inches from the floor to the mirror's center, according to Broan. Medicine cabinets provide extra storage in the bathroom.
Where should bathroom vanity lights be placed?
The primary place to hang wall sconces in the bathroom is on both sides of the bathroom vanity mirror, providing ideal lighting for the sink area. The American Lighting Association's general rule is to mount them 65 to 70 inches from the floor, at about eye level.
