Powder room lighting question - 2 sconces enough?

madtown_2006_gwOctober 23, 2013

Hi all, I'm cross-posting from the Bathrooms forum in case anyone here can help me...thanks in advance :)

We are remodeling our small powder room (~ 3' x 6') and we would like to put two scones on the wall like this:

We are also doing a similar pedestal sink. Here are the sconces I really like, but they each take only one 60w B10 candelabra base bulb. Do you think that is enough lighting for a small powder room? Currently there is no ceiling fixture, just a fan. I could replace the fan with a fan/light combo, but I'd prefer not to do that unless necessary. Does anyone know if the 2 60W candelabra bulbs would be enough? Thank you!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yes, that should be enough. 120 watts is more than enough. Guests won't be shaving or putting on make-up (except maybe lipstick). I'd even put them on dimmers. Mood is more important than brilliance in a powder room.
