LED Vanity

Wall and Bathroom Vanity Lights

LITELUME’s Vanity lights are a particular subset of lighting fixtures designed to be mounted above the bathroom vanity or on a wall inside the commercial or residential property.

The vanity area is typically comprised of a vanity sink, countertop, and vanity mirror. Vanity lights are considered task lighting and should not be expected to fully light a bathroom on their own.

Be sure to incorporate other layers of light throughout your room—bathroom ceiling lights and bathroom pendant lights (or even chandeliers for a trendy, modern flair) are great for providing ambient lighting to the room as a whole. The primary function of bathroom sconces and vanity light fixtures is to evenly light your face for all your daily self-care tasks.

Common Vanity Light Shapes & Sizes

The range of vanity light shapes available will allow you to truly flex your design skills and chose a fixture that perfectly suits your bathroom aesthetic. Some of the most popular shapes include:

Linear Bar Vanity Lights

Bar vanity lights have a classic feel. These lights are typically comprised of a long rectangular shade enclosing multiple lamps, which makes them a great option for incorporating long-lasting LED arrays.

Caged Vanity

Cage vanity lights evoke a more rugged, industrial bathroom mood and frequently allow the light to shine unobstructed, without a diffuser, for an open, airy look.

Globe Shaped

Globe shaped vanity lights are a modern/contemporary bathroom lighting mainstay, and perfect for creating a sleek, clean, yet slightly quirky aesthetic. These lights enclose the lamp in what is typically a clear or frosted globular shade and lend your vanity area sophisticated panache.

Shaded Vanity

Shaded vanity lights cover a wide range of shapes and styles that all enclose the lamps with vanity light shades. While these fixtures are diverse and versatile, it’s important to chose fixtures with metal or glass shades, as fabric shades (unless they are safety rated for bathroom use) are frequently not suitable for damp environments.

If you love the look of a vanity light with a fabric shade, be sure to choose one specifically designed for damp areas, or consider mounting in your powder room, where airborne moisture from tubs and showers won’t compromise the materials.

Tubular Vanity Lights

Vanity tube lights are similar to bar lights, but these rounded fixtures have an even more futuristic air. The long, tube shape keeps things sleek and simple for more understated rooms.

Lighting Design for Bathrooms

Bathrooms can pose an interesting challenge to lighting design. Like kitchens, bathrooms require practical and functional lighting solutions for a primarily task-oriented space. Grooming requires just the right amount of well-placed lighting. Too little and you won’t be able to see what you’re doing. Too much lighting, or poor placement can cause glare issues. However, like kitchens, you also want something beautiful. Something with style and quality that both suits your décor and creates a soothing environment.
