Bathroom lights usually are placed above or next to a bathroom mirror, above your vanity or sink. They provide a fairly strong light in front of your face which helps you to see clearly for washing, make-up application and so on. A row of 3-5 light bulbs is ideal for most bathrooms, while 1-light or 2-light fixtures could be placed either side of a mirror. Bath vanity lights shield your eyes from the glare of lightbulbs and also provide ambient light for the whole bathroom.
Fixtures closely attached to a wall tend to produce more ambient background light. They might be used to support a more central light fixture or as a less elaborate central light. They can produce strong light near to where they are placed. Wall sconces and bathroom lights can add extra light to one side of a room where you need it.
Bath vanity lights are best used in a bathroom or restroom, above or next to a mirror. However, single or two-light bath lights could be used like a wall-sconce in other rooms such as living rooms, dining rooms, hallways or bedrooms.
