Vanity Lighting Styles: Look by Look

Choosing an appropriate style of vanity lighting can go a long way toward improving the overall appearance of your bathroom design. Whether you want to go with something contemporary or traditional, bold or understated, the fact remains that you need some type of light.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the options you could use as inspiration for decorating your bathroom. Whether it’s a single light floating above the mirror, a pair of bars lining either side, or something with a bit of attitude, there are plenty of Lumens vanity lighting options to suit your taste.

Vanity Lighting Above and Beyond

Jew Box Bath Bar by George Kovacs

If you have higher ceilings in your bathroom, try lighting your vanity by mounting the Jewel Box Bath Bar on the wall above. Designed by George Kovacs, the Jewel Box Bath Bar is a popular design for a bathroom that already includes some chrome and glass elements. The fixture has clear glass surrounding light boxes with aluminum stripes to give a sparkling gemstone appearance to the fixture. The design comes with options of either 3, 4, or 5 lights in a row. The glass is mounted onto a chrome wall plate for additional light reflection. Glam up your bathroom with the Jewel Box and your morning routine will get just a little bit brighter.

See what customers are saying about the Jewel Box Bath Bar:

I am IN LOVE with this bath bar. It has really classed up our cute bathroom in ways I didn’t even anticipate. It looks great when the lights are off, in its artsy aesthetic. But when the lights are on, it is just gorgeous. I love the way the light reflects through the metal boxes that enclose the light, for lack of a better description. See my picture for a clearer description. I seriously love it. My bathroom looks so great with this addition. Really thankful I was able to find something simple and modern but also provides the perfect amount of light for my bathroom. Beautiful and practical!

Vanity Lighting Side by Side

Jedi Indoor / Outdoor Wall Sconce by Modern Forms

Placing lights on either side of the vanity is a stylish way to illuminate a narrow mirror. Try a fixture like the Jedi Indoor/Outdoor LED Wall Sconce by Modern Forms. This intergalactic fixture is perfect for getting an even glow on both sides of the face and eliminating shadows while you’re getting ready in the morning. Available in either bronze or brushed aluminum finish, we love the versatility of this fixture. Try the bronze in a warmer space with wood accents, or the brushed aluminum in a bathroom with more chrome. The vanity lighting fixtures have a downward facing light on the bottom to create an attractive vertical column of light.

Vanity Lighting That Makes A Statement

If you’re not satisfied with the sleek styles of a contemporary fixture or the classic lines of traditional lighting, there are some fun ways to inject some color and pizzazz into your bathroom décor. Try the Firefly Bath Bar or the Fascination Bath Bar.

Firefly Bath Bar by Oggetti Luce

The Firefly Bath Bar by Oggetti Luce is a colorful fixture made from mouth-blown glass. This bath bar is part of a Firefly collection from the company which uses a unique glass grinding technique to get that multilayered glass appearance. It’s available in Mocha, White, or Red so you can decide how bold you’re willing to go with your vanity lights.

Fascination Bath Bar by Varaluz

Varaluz designed the Fascination Bath Bar and boy, have they caught our fascination. The organically arranged bubbles of recycled colored glass and hand-forged steel are simply gorgeous. Available in hammered ore with clear, golden Kolorado with amber, or silver Nevada with clear, this vanity light is destined to become the centerpiece of any bathroom it inhabits.

See what our customers are saying about the Fascination Bath Bar:

This fixture is everything that I had hoped it would be and more. Gives a beautiful light to our powder room walls and is SO SO SO gorgeous. What a great conversation piece. Well made and super easy to install. It’s expensive, yes, but totally worth it. Why settle for something ordinary?
