Bella figura, Rosetta offers fine Italian styles that combines a classic profile with multiple murine glass patterns that will enhance any setting with a perfect mix of form and function.

WAC Lighting’s new decorative low profile sconces with glass shades boast a truly exclusive look with exceptional quality. Each sconce canopy is designed with timeless style and plated in Chrome and Brushed Nickel finishes.

Even in the smallest bathroom or powder room, good lighting and good switches and dimmers make all the difference! Once you have light control in your bathroom, you will wonder how you ever lived without it.

Have one switch for ceiling lighting, whether it is recessed lighting or a ceiling fixture. Have the mirror lighting on a separate switch with a dimmer. I use it at the lowest setting to enjoy a relaxing bath or when I get up at night or first get up until I am ready for the morning.

Wall sconces on either side of a mirror or medicine cabinet provide both decorative and task lighting.

“Stick to a style and finish that is compatible with the other elements in the room. Coodinate the style of the sconces near the vanity with that of the cabinet, for example.”

Bathrooms: The Smart Approach to Design by the Editors of Creative Homeowner, Home Decorating

The best light for applying makeup is shed from the sides of a mirror. The best for shaving is from above. In both cases, there are many ways to do this effectively. Plan your bath lighting for how you will be using the bathroom. And don’t forget that the right switches and dimmers make all the difference!

“Wall-mounted light sconces are a good way to provide adequate lighting without overwhelming a small space, so they’re a good choice in a powder room.”

Simple Kit to Convert Recessed Lighting to LED

Hallway with Eurofase 25081 6" LED Conversion Kit

Hallway with Eurofase 25081 6″ LED Conversion Kit

Convert your existing recessed lighting to super energy efficient LED with a new easy-to-use kit from Eurofase.

The kit includes everything you need to convert a typical 6 inch recessed can that uses a 150W Incandescent R40 to PAR 38 bulb. The LED driver is powered by screwing into the bulb socket. The 14W LED SHARP 120V/277V LED is provided.

The LED Kelvin 3500K emits a warm white light.

The beam angle is adjustable up to 120 degrees to highlight artwork or graze walls.

LED lamps have a much longer life than incandescent lamps. They do not emit UV rays. They put out very little infrared or heat. They are ideal to light artwork or photography that is sensitive to UV or temperature. LEDs are highly energy efficient offering significant savings on electricity bills. Their longer lifespan reduces maintenance time and costs, making them ideal for hard-to-reach places.
