Add more light to bathroom

I used a large dresser mirror with shelves from an old maple bedroom set on one wall above the toilet. It adds light to the room as well as storage for perfume bottles and nick nacks or any other items you might want to display or have at your fingertips.

Educational? I guess, but definitely factual. A much better contribution than those from Herbward White

OK I'll dive in.

Lighting falls into basic categories; Task lighting and general room lighting.

I still don't know what's going on past that. :confused:

Houston, does this mean you're in the dark about lighting? As far as the OP goes me too.

Many of the old plantation homes here in the south used wall mounted mirrors (which were expensive silver-backed types back then) to lighten rooms by placing them opposite the windows. Reflected light doesn't add to the total luminescence but it redirects it in a (hopefully) more useful way.
