Lighting Ideas for the Powder Bath
I spent some time yesterday searching for the perfect light fixture to go in a client's powder bathroom. Originally, I envisioned one 3 - 4 light decorative bar fixture to mount above the mirror (kind of like this)...that is until I started noticing [just about EVERYWHERE] that people are illuminating their powder bathrooms with a pair of matching wall sconces, mounted on either side of the bathroom mirror. Hello - where have I been?! After rounding up so many great examples for this post, I'm definitely all for wall sconces in lieu of the traditional bar light fixture, especially for the powder bath. Sconces are great for creating ambiance and can look so classy and chic. See my top wall sconce picks at the end of this post! What type of lighting do you prefer in a powder or guest bath?
MY TOP PICKS FOR WALL SCONCES: 1. MARGO CHROME WALL SCONCE; 2. BILL BLASS FRENCH LIBRARY SCONCE; 3. CRYSTAL LEAF 2-LIGHT SCONCE; 4. BARONNESS TWO-LIGHT SCONCE; 5. RAPHAELLA SCONCE; 6. REGATTA HIGH 1-LIGHT WALL SCONCE; 7. VENTANA WALL SCONCE; 8. VIENNA FULL SPECTRUM MANHATTAN SCONCE
