The Position and Style

You do not have to put your rustic bathroom vanity lights right above your vanity. You can experiment with the style. You can install the light right in the vanity if it is tall and big enough. Or, you can install the lights in both sides of the vanity. Some people install a mirror above their vanities, and install some lights above the mirror or around the mirror like one you see in an artist’s dressing room. The number of the lights should also be considered based on the size of your vanity. It should be in the same width of your vanity. If you have bigger vanity, you can install three or four lights. On the contrary, if you only have small vanity, you can install at least two lights.

No matter the position and the number of the lights, make sure you have the wooden surface as the place where the lights should be hung. The surface can be installed in the wall above the vanity. It can be made out of wood, or rusty metal. If you choose metal, it is better to have metal light frame as well to match it. If you prefer wooden surface, you can have metal hanger to hang the lights or lamps to balance it out. For the brightness of the light, make sure that it is not too bright. In fact, it is recommended for you to have dimly lit bathroom with dim lights since it is the signature style of rustic look.

The DIY Lights

If you prefer to create your own lights with your own personal touch, you can make it out of glass jar. Prepare a glass jar and hang your light bulb inside it. However, you also need professional’s help to install the metal to the top of the jar, so it can be hung to the surface you installed before. In this DIY project, you can get cheaper lights with simpler preparation. Moreover, in this kind of light, you can be sure that the brightness produced is dim enough, since it is trapped inside the glass jar and reflected a bit through the glasses side. That is the perfect idea if you want to have rustic bathroom vanity lights efficient and cheap.
