These days, it is no longer difficult to look for more options for your bathroom vanities. The numerous catalogues available online alone provides a lot of options. In fact, if you are on a tight budget and want to save more money, you may opt for secondhand vanities that still look brand new. Not all secondhand stuffs appear so worn-out. Many of them are still new since some people tend to buy bathroom vanities that are either too small or too big to suit their bathrooms. You will be able to save great amount if you happen to obtain some brand new furniture at cheaper prices.
Purchasing cheap bathroom vanities may be associated with these reasons: you probably want extra storage capacity in your bathroom as your medicine cabinets, and you may like to have a fresh look of your bathroom and step out of that monotonous and old-fashioned look. Whatever your reason may be, you have a choice to obtain a vanity unit that has mirrors, basins, lighting, and storage space.
On the other hand, the bathroom’s vanity lighting is sometimes disregarded, but without proper lights, the overhead light fixtures may produce shadows and you will not be able to have a proper view of some things you do that require more illumination.
Inappropriate placement of vanity lights can create shadows and glare in unwanted areas; but it would be prevented if the lighting is placed on the sides of the mirror. For bigger mirror, the light can be hung directly on the mirror. Just remember to set up the lighting at eye level in order to generate even lights without producing shadows.
Bathroom vanity light fixtures should produce a balanced illumination – not so bright or so dim. A larger bathroom needs no less than two to five lighting. Strip lights can be the ideal type of light fixture for this since it can illuminate the entire vanity and can be placed to shine either upward or downward. Alternatively, a smaller bathroom may require single vanity lighting mounted at the sides of the mirror.
A dimmer or light switch can be added as well to control the light. The lighting need not be broader than the bathroom cabinet or vanity table but can be broader than the mirror.
The appearance of light should match your current faucets and other bathroom fixtures. If you have glossy bathroom fixtures, then chrome or shiny silver will suffice. If the style has a brushed appearance, then a brushed nickel will be a great option.
