    Default Bath Lighting

    Apparently we did the #1 mistake in bath lighting on our remodel - putting recessed lighting above full length mirror. How can we now minimize shadows - convert recessed lights to pendants or put up side lighting?

    call an electrician and he can change your fixtures or the location of your fixtures. you might have to patch up some holes and touch up paint.

    Does anyone have more constructive advice on what kind of lighting we need to reduce shadows in the bath?

    for women looking in a mirror, they want the lighting in front of their face as in a sconce on each side of the mirror or a light above the mirror. recessed lighting casts shadows on your face when looking in a mirror.

    you can Use eyeball lights around the vanity to focus on your face and prevent shadows and glare.
