I work on a lot of bathroom remodels. And if there's one thing I’m completely sick of seeing, it’s this:
A bar light above a mirror.
Nothing says “typical” like a bar light. Nothing says “nothing special” like a bar light.
Yes, I’ve had to use them - times like...
When a client doesn't have the budget for relocating the j-box and we're just replacing.
When there’s no room anywhere else.
When there’s some kind of architectural reason that's provided behind the walls making it to where we can’t relocate things.
Those are the instances when we have to do the best we can with some nice ones that aren't so ordinary.
I still look for every way possible to be able to do something different. And by "different" I mean...

I love sconces; but there's a problem I face when selecting some of them:
Many sconces on the market out there don’t provide people with enough wattage, some only having 40 watts on each side. That causes them to be pretty dim when trying to apply makeup or shave.
Oh, how I would love to design some bathroom sconce lighting! If it was up to me they would all have at least 100 watts each!
I do appreciate some of the unusual ways I’ve seen bathrooms lit. Are they the best for applying makeup or plucking your eyebrows? Maybe not. However, there’s no denying they’re unique! And for just the right place, they’re perfect.
