For most of us, the bath­room van­ity is one of the first places we head to be­fore start­ing our day. Today, van­i­ties have come a long way from the util­i­tar­ian pedestal sink and faucet— they’ve be­come el­e­gantly de­signed mini-areas within the bath­room. Your van­ity shouldn’t just look good; it should also be prac­ti­cal in cater­ing to your life­style and daily needs. Good light­ing, for in­stance, is one of the key fea­tures you can’t over­look. “When de­sign­ing a van­ity space, avoid down­lights as these cast un­even shad­ows on the mir­ror,” says Nikki Hunt, prin­ci­pal of De­sign In­ter­ven­tion. “Even light from both sides will il­lu­mi­nate the face evenly for bet­ter groom­ing and makeup ap­pli­ca­tion.” Jen­nifer Mur­ray, de­sign direc­tor of The Mill Group, agrees. Ac­cord­ing to her, ceil­ing lights are not the best choice for bath­rooms, as they can cre­ate shad­ows on your face. “Mir­rors and light­ing should work closely to­gether, with lights placed slightly above the mir­ror,” says Mur­ray. She rec­om­mends plac­ing sconces on each side of the mir­ror, to make the van­ity ideal for shav­ing or putting on makeup. A dim­mer switch can also be in­stalled for a softer, more re­laxed mood. As fol­lows be­low, take a look at the bath­room van­ity prod­ucts that will fit your life­style.
