Bathroom Wall Sconce Ideas

from top left:

I'm going to be honest for a minute. I know there are people that love the details. They love searching for the perfect item. They love comparing them. They love picking them out. I am not one of those people. That is one of the reasons things like our bathroom remodel stress me out. There are just so many decisions to make. The shower head, the drawer pulls, the vanity lighting...not to forget the tile, the window, the glass options for the shower, the toilet, the countertop, the vanity, and on and on and on. Just SO MANY DECISIONS. And since they all cost money, each decision feels like such a burden. I always feel like they end up not being a huge deal in the end. But I don't want to regret any decision I make. Yet I also don't want to spend hours scowering the internet for the perfect piece either.

My strategy was to find something I like on Pinterest, do a quick google search of that item, find a couple comparable options and pick one. Wall sconces for either side of our mirror were a little bit more difficult though. Partially because there are so many options out there and partially because it was the only thing Ian and I didn't see completely eye to eye on. It's actually amazing that in the whole bathroom remodel, this was the only decision we both couldn't completely agree on! But, he couldn't come up with a better option, so I ordered the ones I wanted.

Also, am I the only person that won't order something without a good return policy? There are just so many what if's when ordering so many things online from so many places and hoping they all go together. I actually found some other lights I liked that I didn't end up ordering because in the reviews people talked of the finish not looking the same as online and they didn't have a good return policy and I didn't want to be stuck with something that didn't go with the rest of the bathroom.

Besides a good return policy, I quickly realized how the prices of lights were all over the place. From uber cheap (less than $20 a light), to hundreds a light. I quickly decided to set a price of how much I wanted to spend, so I could easily rule out things because of their ridiculous price tag. This also kept be from falling in love with something far too expensive, then talking myself into it not being that expensive ;)

Anyway, after combing through the internet and looking at more vanity lighting than my brain can comprehend, I thought I would share some of the great ones I found. Also, many of them come from staple home stores like Lowes, Pottery Barn and West Elm. But I found that, of course, none of the ones I liked were available in stores. That would have been just too easy!

Our bathroom really is coming together. It's fun seeing all the little, and big, decisions we made come together to make our bathroom. It should all be done within a week, and then I'll be sharing it with you all.
