Thereof, can vanity lights hang over mirror?
Over-Mirror Lighting Height In those situations, a wall-mounted vanity fixture above the mirror is an option. Install the light above the medicine cabinet or mirror at a height of about 75 to 80 inches from the floor. You can also use the vanity as a guide.
Likewise, how wide should vanity light be compared to mirror? The ideal width is at least 28 inches apart, and centered at 60 inches above the floor. If you choose to place your lights above the mirror, the width of your fixture should be at least 1/3 the width of the vanity mirror, but should never exceed its total width.
Subsequently, question is, where should bathroom vanity lights be placed?
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.
Should bathroom lights be up or down?
Bath Vanity Lighting Placement Normally the light should be centered over the basin at about 66” above the floor, and always if possible on the wall not the ceiling. If two sinks are being used each should have its own light, do not attempt to share a light if possible.
