I didn't see much encouragement to install wall sconces on a wide mirror. In a large bathroom it is a great way to double the lighting without glare. The only consideration is what you'll see if the light fixture isn't closed in the back. I had both vanities with mirror wall scones and pot lights...it was perfect!

I found out the hard way that beautiful bathroom lighting is not always functional. I had to do a ‘do over’ since it did light the space but not the face when utilizing the mirrors for makeup, shaving, etc.

Love the first photo! Sharp, classic, not too trendy and probably going to look good for long time.
