Vanity sidelight heights

Hi all......

I've read conflicting reports about the proper height to mount lights on the sides of the vanity mirror. Is there a standard out there?

no surprise there. everyone has a different opinion. the person's height, style of light, brightness of light, personal preference, ceiling height, room layout, design.....can all be determining factors.

Ditto.

Set the fixtures to the height that suits the fixture and your needs.

Agree, it's a personal preference.

OK, thanks all! I figure it is best to postion them in the spot that best lights up my face. :)

Did mine so the bulb was just a few inches above eye level, which worked out well for shaving.
