I've got sconces planned for the master bath and am wondering about your experiences with light output. I originally envisioned fabric shades, 60W max. GC told me they don't produce enough light for grooming, which I had already started to suspect. A lighting store said to do 100W. Kitchen/bath designer at a showroom was surprised at that and said white fabric shades are fine, 100W is too much. I think a bare bulb 60W candlestick sconce would have too much glare.
I'll have them on a dimmer. There's a 2-bulb ceiling fixture with white glass (2-60W) behind the vanity.
It's a light colored bathroom with light paint.
What works for you?
