Allen and Roth Vanity Lights: Make Your Bathroom Pretty And Bright!

Allen+Roth bathroom lighting is not only functional, but it’s also stylish – a combo that you rarely see

Let take a look what kind of vanity light my favorite brand offers.

Merington Vanity Lights

You can’t go wrong with Merington vanity lights. They look chic and are designed to fit any modern bathroom. 

Merington multi-head vanity lights have frosted opal glass shades mounted on a nickel, light chrome, or bronze metal bar. Hand-painted shades create a soft and warm glow without intense shadowing. The lights can be installed facing up or down to suit your preference. 

Their 3-light or 5-light design is accommodating to different sized bathrooms. The Merington 5-light fixture measures 37.5 inches, while the shorter one is only 21.5-inches long. Precisely measure the space above your vanity to ensure a good fit. 

Each opaque glass shade takes a 60-watt A19 bulb. Their lights are also fully dimmable, so you can create a relaxing ambiance when taking a bath. 

Pros:

  • Fit any modern bathroom
  • Different finish options
  • Damp-rated
  • Fully dimmable
  • 1-year limited warranty 

Cons:

  • Bulbs not included
  • Prone to rusting
  • End shades can be hard to install on the bar 

More Vanity Lights

Do you like modern design? How about traditional and industrial? Allen and Roth makes vanity lights for every taste!

The most popular options are the 5-light and 3-light vanity bar fixtures that can be installed above double sink bathroom vanities. 

This Kenross fixture  is a great example of the triple-head design. The clear ribbed glass shades enclosed in a metal cage resemble a lantern. This vanity light almost looks nautical. 

The Vallymede 3-light fixture  is just as pretty. It creates amazing illumination since it works on 60-watt bulbs, just like any other Allen Roth bathroom lighting. If the light is too intense for your liking, you can easily dim it. 

Other popular collections in this style include:

  • Hainsbrook
  • Wyatt
  • Dunwynn
  • Winsbrell

Let me introduce you to the Brighton integrated LED vanity fixture , so you can truly see how diverse Allen and Roth products are. Its sleek boxy design looks nothing like a multi-head light.

If you like this style better, I recommend you check out these collections:

  • Lorelei 
  • Lynnpark 
  • McAden  
  • Charlotte  

Since these fixtures work with LED lights, you can expect to get years of maintenance-free illumination. 

Pros:

  • Variety of styles and options
  • Available in different colors
  • All are damp-rated
  • Can be installed facing up or down
  • Covered by a 1 to 5-year limited warranty, depending on the fixture

How to choose vanity lights

Better Homes & Gardens says that a single fixture won’t do your bathroom justice. They recommend you layer task, ambient, and accents lights to ensure adequate illumination.

Installing an Allen Roth vanity light above the sink will instantly make a difference. Check the picture above for the proof. You can see how this Hainsbrook fixture gives the bathroom an old-fashioned charm

Allen Roth vanity fixtures are damp-rated and completely safe to use in bathrooms. They are available in different lengths. You can pick from 1-light to 5-light versions. Most importantly, their lights can be installed facing up or down to suit your preference.  

Light directed upwards creates less shadow and makes you look more flattering. Light facing down is, on the other hand, ideal for applying makeup.  

Here is how you correctly install a vanity light in your bathroom:
