Chandeliers are synonymous with elegant style, and when you pair them with InLine mirror lighting, you get beauty and functionality in one approach. Minimalist mirror lighting is one of the simplest bathroom lighting ideas that won’t distract from your glamorous centerpiece.  

Eclectic Bathroom Lighting for Any Style

We all love a clean bathroom, but your décor doesn’t need to be bland. Sculpt lighted mirrors with museum-like frames can help you create the bathroom of your dreams. Pair your artistic pieces with bathroom ceiling lights to ensure you can get bright light when you need it or use your eclectic pieces alone to set the mood for a cozy atmosphere.

Lighten Things Up With a Touch

Lighted mirrors with touch technology are the perfect addition to a modern bathroom featuring the latest gadgets. Featuring LUM lighting with optimal color rendering and even built-in sound systems, the AiO collection brings subtle elegance while equipping your bathroom with today’s best features.  

Small Bathroom Lighting Ideas

Even a studio apartment bathroom or guest bathroom can function as an opulent escape. Although you may feel limited with a compact room, our Vesper collection allows you to outline any mirror with modular lighting to brighten even the smallest corners. And if you're all about the ambiance, a dimmer lets you create the perfect space to relax or get things done.  

Mixed Lights in the Bathroom

Bathroom Night Light Ideas

If you need ambient lighting for nighttime, consider foregoing a traditional plug-in night light for an innovative, light-up vanity. Our Cartesian vanity features integrated LED lighting, offering a modern take on a classic necessity.  

Double Vanity Lighting Ideas

Double vanities are a necessity for the modern shared bathroom. Whether your space is split with a spouse, a roommate, or a whole family, it’s essential to have more than one sink and mirror. And when it comes to bathroom lighting ideas, over mirror lights have come a long way. Instead of trying to work from one overhead light source, illuminate both counter spaces with their own lighted mirrors like these from our Sculpt collection.  

Go Brighter in White Spaces

Our LED bathroom lights offer the versatility of multiple tuning options. Choose between warm white (3000K) and cool white (4000K) to find the look best suited for your space. If you’re going for a bright, modern appeal, the cool white setting on our InLine vertical bathroom lights adds an extra sheen.      

Opt for an Opulent Finish

Create Visual Contrast

The most relaxing bathrooms often feature dark, sultry colors with soft mood lighting. Add some drama to a romantic space with a lighted mirror. Not only will it make your bathroom appear larger, but it also creates dramatic shadows that are sure to enhance your tranquil experience.  

Get Glammed Up With Glow Lighting
