Lighting help for small bathroom needed

4 months ago
last modified: 4 months ago


My bathroom plans call for wall sconces on either side of the 42" wide bathroom vanity cabinet mirror. I have one canned light planned for the shower. As the wall sconces have a 60 watt bulb max capacity, is that enough light for a 6' 7/16" x 7' 9"' bathroom? I really like the wall sconces and prefer them over a vanity light over the mirror even if it would have more wattage.

If more lighting is needed, what is the best way to accomplish that? Can I add more canned lights? My builder is concerned about shadows with the canned lights. Thanks in advance.
