Dear Creative Concepts:
Hi! We have an obnoxious, large, brass Broadway light fixture that I despise! We would love to replace it, however the hole where the electrical is is not centered over our double sink vanity. We need something with a large bar that can be mounted off center. Any thoughts?
Dear Heidi –
This is a great question! In case other readers don’t know what type of fixture you are referring to, I wanted to post an example. Yes – they still sell these light fixtures. In my humble opinion no one should buy them unless they are preparing a make-up room for a Broadway theater…..and maybe not even then!
These are the least expensive option available for bathroom lighting and used even today by builders and remodelers. They look and “feel” inexpensive and there are so many other wonderful options for just a few dollars more!
Sometimes light bars do cover up a problem — like a junction box that isn’t centered. Or maybe you just don’t have the matching paint and don’t want to have to paint the entire wall…..there are options!
Here are some great light fixtures I found quickly on Lampsplus.com. I do order lights from Lampsplus and find they are better quality than what I find in most big box stores.
Aren’t there some beautiful light fixtures available?
Quick tips for choosing a bathroom light fixture:
Thanks for taking the time to ask this question Heidi and we appreciate you reading our blog! I hope this helps you find a bathroom light fixture you love!
