Inadequate light above the sinks: If you’re feeling like the light above your mirror is not enough to illuminate your face, add a wall sconce to each side that will complement the ceiling lights. Recommended wattage: 150 watts of incandescent light, or 40 watts of fluorescent light per sink.

Harsh light during midnight trips to the bathroom: If the bright glare is bothersome, install a dimmer. It is easier on the eyes and provides a pleasant, low glow for the bathroom. Dimmers are affordable and easy to install, and can also serve as mood lighting during a relaxing bath.
