Vanity lights are those that are installed on top of the vanity. The vanity and mirror are the focal points of a bathroom. A vanity light helps draw attention to these focal points. 

Vanity lights are available in different shapes, styles, and designs. Since every bathroom is different, vanity lights are also available in different designs to suit all types of bathrooms. They are available either as single pieces or as a bar with multiple lights attached to them. 

Vanity lights are made of ceramic, metal, and glass. If you want to provide a minimalistic look to the bathroom without an overpowering feel, ceramic lights are the right choice. This type of light is warm and its translucent surface softens the shadow created.

If you want to provide an antique touch to your bathroom, then lights with antique finish are also available.

Flush mount lights are available in metal, glass, and plastic. Metal lights are available in chrome, copper, and stainless steel finish. Glass lights are available in clear glass, etched glass, and frosted glass. Just like glass lights, plastic lights can also be etched, tinted or diffused.

Since chandeliers take up more space than a flush-mounted or recessed light, it is best to install them in bathrooms that are at least 150 sq feet in measurement. But if you want to create a style statement in a small bathroom, then small chandeliers without much accessories will be a good choice. 

The slope and height of the ceiling should also be considered while purchasing a chandelier. If your bathroom has a sloped roof, then a wide chandelier should hang down further so that the sides of the chandelier do not hit the ceiling.

Wall scones are lights that are fixed on the wall. They do not have any base for support on the ground. In earlier times candle scones made of silver or brass were popular. Nowadays, wall scones are available in different sizes, shapes, and finishes and are one of the best lighting choices for bathrooms. 

One of the most popular types of wall scones is the flush-mounted wall scones that are flushed against the wall. It provides both up light and down light thereby brightening the whole bathroom.
