You can use lighting to make your bathroom look larger and elegant, serene, or comfortable and cozy. Add a small table lamp on a counter, a cheap portable uplight on the floor behind a plant or a Soji screen and voila! Instant added atmosphere.
A linear fixture above the mirror or a fixture with several shielded bulbs will give sufficient light for grooming. Granted, it’s best with the light coming from the sides, but if you use a mirror that’s as large as possible over the vanity area, a long light strip will give a good amount of light and make the room appear larger.
Depending your personal style the ceiling light can be replaced with anything from a contemporary spotlight cluster to an ornate mini-chandelier.
