    Everything in this slideshow

    • Crystal Chandelier

      Crystal Sconces

      In this luxurious bathroom, a crystal chandelier takes center stage, adding glamour and sparkle to the traditional decor.

    • Antique Sconces

      Antique sconces hang above the oversize mirror and add unexpected flair to the light and bright bathroom. The dark finish on the light fixtures adds weight to the room and helps unify the dark legs of the chair and the cabinet hardware. Their position above the vanity also provides task lighting for makeup application and grooming.

    • Work of Art

      The organic shape of this blown-glass light fixture works well in the contemporary-style bathroom. Modern spaces can feel cold and be full of hard edges, but the round globes on the light fixture and the hand-shape towel hooks in this bathroom add a touch of playfulness.

    • Candlestick Sconces

      Candlestick wall sconces, ornate details, and custom-glazed cabinets are a nod to country French style. Keep in mind that decorative fixtures add flair, but you'll want to ensure that you have another source of light, such as an overhead fixture or recessed lighting, to provide ample illumination for applying makeup and grooming.

    • Light Tubes

      Streamlined tube lights enhance this sleek bath vanity while providing soft light. Try multiple light switches in the bathroom so you can customize the amount of light. Flip one switch to turn on only the overhead lights, and flip the other switch when you need more precise lighting at the vanity.

    • Lamp Sconces

      Classic lamp sconces add to the romantic feel of this 1920s-style bathroom. The white shades diffuse the glow of the lightbulbs and help to soften the light.

    • Old-World Lanterns

      The ornate styling of these iron lanterns hanging over the vanity is a work of art. Add the curved architecture of the ceiling and detailed craftsmanship on the vanity and there's no doubt: This small bathroom is fit for royalty.

    • Indoor-Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

      Wall-mount lighting fixtures seem to float in this ethereal bathroom. The rounded lights echo curved shapes found elsewhere in the bath and nod to the styling of vintage exterior porch lights.

    • Layered Lighting

      Lighting in a bathroom is paramount, so layering the types of light produces the best results. In this bath, the combination of overhead light from the chandelier, natural light from the windows, and light from the fixtures above the mirrors covers all of the lighting needs.

      Crystal Bathroom Lighting

      In this elegant bathroom, delicate light fixtures were chosen to interject a counterpoint to weighty cabinetry. A finely detailed crystal chandelier crowns the space, while a trio of sparkly sconces mounted directly on mirrors creates a dazzling show of reflections.

      Colored Shades

      Add color with the lampshades in your bathroom for an easy and inexpensive way to update the space. Dark-color shades will block a lot of light, so stick to light colors to maximize illumination.

      Backlit Beauty

      A large mirror framed in onyx is lit from behind, casting a warm glow on the opulent master bathroom.
