Happy New Year 2019! Having taken a short break to celebrate the holiday season, it's time to get back to work...and continue with my blog post series covering a variety of obscure (yet helpful) topics. So, let's pick up where we left off! Part 3 will address how to choose your bathroom vanity lighting. If you've been following my blog, this particular post will make sense since it ties closely with Part 2 of the series.

Much like bathroom mirrors, vanity lighting is a design feature through which you can infuse your own sense of personal style. And yes, buyers WILL take notice of your lighting fixtures - especially if they add a "wow" factor to your bathroom. However, functionality is critical! Good bathroom lighting should light YOU, and not so much the wall and/or mirror. But with all the choices available - sconces, pendants, chandeliers, LEDs, and recessed can lights - it can be a little overwhelming. This Houzz article provides great tips on how to choose vanity light fixtures as well as what the ideal placement is for the best lighting. The article also offers many photos to give you plenty of inspiration and direction.
