Half bath light

I am remodeling my half bathroom. It is about 4x3, sink right next to the toilet. I plan to put in a ceiling light, but now wonder if I should have a light above the sink/mirror in addition or instead of? Any thoughts?

Re: Half bath light

The lighting requirements of a half bath are pretty minimal because folks are either going potty or washing hands, neither of which need good lighting. I would say that an overhead light fixture will suffice. The only caveat to that is if you're decorating in a particular manner where either a pair of coach lights along side the mirror or something above it might be more appropriate.
