Interior designer Tali Roth said there is nothing worse than a poorly lit bathroom.
‘People often forget that they need multiple light sources and end up with a single dull sconce—which basically ensures you’ll leave the house with scary clown makeup. Try to incorporate both decorative and task lighting,’ she said.

She explained that it’s important that a bathroom has a good source of natural light as well as lighting that is strategically placed both overhead and surrounding the vanity light.
