The flexibility of using pendants at a bath vanity is undeniable. I opt to use pendants when there is an ample amount of vanity space, but mostly when we are space challenged. By just dropping in a few pendants, you can expand the mirror size or shrink it depending on the aesthetic and overall function of the room.
I particularly like to shrink the mirror and flank it with two pendants in powder rooms. It creates a sense of drama. In master suites or other large baths, I like to expand the mirror and use pendants. These can be appropriately placed to provide ample lighting to shave or apply make up.
Choosing pendants over wall sconces is a unconventional approach that enhances the overall experience of using the vanity. This is why so many times, I default to the “drop it” method when trying to determine vanity lighting.
