flattering light over vanity
I read in a book that the most flattering light over a vanity is provided by light boxes on each side of the mirror. Apparently, this is created by concealing the light sources behind frosted-glass strips. The light boxes need to be a minimum of 3 /14 in deep so there is no direct imaging of the light source. Has anyone tried this? I have always had bathrooms with wall fixtures over the mirror. Would light boxes on their own be enough light over a vanity? Is there anywhere one can buy a ready made mirror that has light boxes on each side and large enough for over a vanity?
