Architectural Digest said this about bathroom lighting:
Great lighting is important in every room in the house, but it plays a particularly vital role in a bathroom. Choose the wrong bulb and you wind up looking jaundiced as you put on your makeup; place a fixture in the wrong spot and you’re shaving in the shadows. “Sometimes people think a sconce alone will be romantic, and it just doesn’t work,” says designer Anne Sneed of Del Mar, California. “You want a few different sources of lighting to make the room pretty but also functional.” Install extra lights based on the activity. Does the room’s overhead fixture not provide enough light to shave in the shower? Add a recessed can light with a watertight seal. Do you apply makeup in the bathroom? Bring in a makeup mirror with a built-in light. Do you want to add personality and atmosphere? Hang a chandelier for visual interest (though it shouldn’t be your main light source). Here are the designer’s tips for choosing bulbs, placing fixtures, and avoiding a haunted-house effect.
