For extra light, sconces can be added on either side of the mirror mounted 60" off the floor. An over head light can also be used for better 360 degree lighting with less shadowing.
For lighting a bathroom, the fixture most commonly used is a single vanity light mounted directly above the mirror with anywhere from 3-8 inches on either side of the vanity, If there is a double sink vanity, two vanity fixtures can be used mounted and centered over each sink.
For hallways there should be a fixture every 8-10 feet. All fixtures hung from the ceiling, excluding eating areas, should be hung 7' off the floor. Sconces can be added to any room for extra light and should be mounted 60" off the floor.
For general kitchen lighting ceiling mounts, semi-flushes, cans or even fluorescent fixtures are acceptable. Mini-pendants or island lights may be used to increase task lighting and should be hung 30" above the counter depending on ceiling height. Mini-pendants should be spaced 12-18" apart.
For lighting a smaller eating area like a dinette, the fixture should be hung 30-36" off the table and should be no wider than 12" less the width of your table.
A dining room light should be no wider than 12" less the width of the table and should sit 30" above the top of the table for a standard 8' ceiling. Raise the fixture 3" for every additional foot of ceiling height.
To find the right sizing for an entryway add the length of the room by the width and height of the room in feet. That number is the number in inches the fixture should be.
L + W + H = Fixtures in inches
Wall fixtures can be added on one or both sides of the front door. They should be 1/5 the height of the door and mounted about 66" from the floor, slightly above eye level.
When mounting, always mount on the key hole side of the door, or use chain hung fixtures for general illumination. Side walks and smaller pathways may be lit with small path lights mounted every 8-10 feet.
How much light do you really need? Let's figure it out!
General Lighting - (L x W) x 1.5 = Wattage
Task Lighting - (L x W) x 2.5 = Wattage
Changing the multiplier gives you the proper intensity for reading, writing or fine detail work like chopping or sewing. The best forms of task lighting will come from sources like lamps, hanging pendants or spot lights.
To figure Lumens: Wattage x 9.5 = Lumens
