I installed this fixture in two bathrooms of similar size (5" x 9") but slightly darker value in wall color in one room. It provided optimal light in the room painted bright white. The fixture is well-made and has a "light leak" at each side that shows up as a streak effect that's rather nice. For an overhead installation, two screws are prominent on the underside that are a bit distracting. This is my first order from YLighting and I found the technical support and order process to be very helpful and easy.

I installed two of these fixtures, vertically, on either side of a 32" x 38" framed mirror in 7' x 11' bathroom with 10' lighted ceiling. Each fixture takes 5 40W halogen bulbs, not the 5 60W listed under Specifications, which eliminated my concern about them being too bright and helped me decide. They are beautiful in form and function and, although it was more than I had hoped to spend, I am very happy with them. The light pattern cast from the top and bottom of the cover is a nice effect and an extra bonus. Clean, modern look.

I bought this fixture for a small, windowless, powder room, and it really brightens up the room. Even though I am using 5 60 watt G9 halogen bulbs, I think 40 or 50 watt G9 bulbs are sufficient. Also, the ends are not closed, so ring-like shadows emerge. Overall, I am happy with this fixture for its simple, clean design.

The simplicity of its design allows for this light to be easily integrated into a wide variety of bathroom designs, and it also provides a very evenly distributed light output; the only negative is that it could probably use one more bulb to increase the maximum output!

Gives off plenty of light. Using just one over a mirror in a half bathroom. You do see each bulb more so than in the picture. Solid construction. Hoping the G9 halogen blubs will last longer than E11s. That was an important factor in the purchase decision.

I was reluctant to spend the money on these, but my architect encouraged me to buy them and I do not regret it. I bought 5 and have them hanging in several bathrooms. They can be hung either horizontally or vertically. The lighting is bright but not harsh and they look beautiful.
