All questions are answered within 24 hours.

  • We want to install 2 large led mirrors 24 wide over our 60 inch double vanity. We would also like to install 3 sconces one on each end the other in the middle between the mirrors is that to much light?

    This sounds like a good idea, especially if the mirrors and the sconces are on separate switches and/or dimmers. Sometimes you need more light than other times, and it's nice to have multiple layered light sources. We would recommend getting a bulb for the sconces that is close in color temperature to the LED mirrors. Hope this helps! Shop our Vanity Wall Sconces here.

  • Looking at the Chloe 3 light vanity vs Chloe vanity wall sconce for Primary bathroom with 2 sinks. How do you determine if 2 wall sconce will provide enough light vs the 3 light vanity?

    Thanks for your question! The benefit of using a vanity light above each mirror, is that you get a large amount of even light falling down on the face. This is essential for grooming tasks and applying make-up. If you use a sconce, we recommend putting one on either side of each mirror, and above eye level of the tallest user. The wall space above and around your mirrors will also help determine which lights will fit best. Since the Chloe is a clear glass fixture, the brightness of the light is really determined by the bulbs you select. For the vanity light, if you use three standard 60W bulbs, you'll have more than enough light, while one 60W bulb per sconce would also work, but be slightly less bright. Either way, the Chloe is an excellent stylish choice for your primary bath! 

  • Going through my Master Bathroom Remodel now and need some help. Can Vanity Lights be hung to fall right under a mirror or should they be above the top of the mirror? Mine are going to hang alittle below and don’t see much that way and not sure I like it.

    This is a personal preference, but we recommend installing vanity lights above the mirror to prevent glare and light bouncing off the mirror. This also depends on the design of the vanity light.

  • I'm planning early in a bathroom remodeling project, can these be installed easily or would I need an electrician to do it?

    They're pretty easy. Most of our customers install their own light fixtures, but some people like to hand it off to an electrician for the convenience of it. Click on the product and then the specifications tab to preview the instruction manual before you buy it. We'll be happy to answer any questions so you feel confident! 

  • I don't have a lot of width to work with, which would be great to place just above my vanity?

    We love the two-Light vanities for narrow spaces. 

  • Do you sell mirrors

    We do not sell mirrors. We recommend pairing our vanity and wall lights with a mirror of your choice!
