Every bathroom deserves the best lighting possible. We’ve rounded up our favorite bathroom lights for your inspiration. From ceiling to vanity, here are ten of our favorite bathroom lighting ideas.

Ceiling Lights

For overall ambience in the bathroom, nothing beats the all-around light created by a good overhead ceiling light.

Boxie Ceiling Light from TECH Lighting

Still streamlined, but with a softer round form. The Plus Ceiling Light is an award-winning design created to replicate the look and light coming through a real skylight.

Zeppo Semi Flush Ceiling Light from Astro Lighting

Softer still, the Zeppo Semi Flush Ceiling Light has a clean, cloud-like look. Its semi flush mounting drops it down a bit and gives it a more substantial presence in bathrooms with slightly taller ceilings.

Bath Bars

All the light you need, no waiting. Specially designed for creating a sleek, cohesive look across the top of a mirror, certain bath bar designs can now be installed along the sides as needed.

Lofty 3 Light Vanity Light from Varaluz

The Lofty 3 Light Vanity Light combines hard and soft in an elegant and sophisticated way. The industrial modern look is achieved through its hand-forged recycled steel frame, dark-stained wood accent, and exposed bulbs.

The Artemis 900 LED Bath Bar has a slim, linear design that makes it sleek, modern and great for contemporary bathrooms. This modern vanity light gives off the perfect amount of flattering task light for getting ready in the morning.
