60So, you are stuck with a single fixture over the mirror and one utilitarian ceiling light.  Make the best of it!

You can use lighting to make your bathroom look larger and elegant,  serene, or comfortable and cozy. Add a small table lamp on a counter, a cheap portable uplight on the floor behind a plant or a Soji screen and voila! Instant added atmosphere.

A linear fixture above the mirror or a fixture with several shielded bulbs will give sufficient light for grooming. Granted, it’s best with the light coming from the sides, but if you use a mirror that’s as large as possible over the vanity area, a long light strip will give a good amount of light and make the room appear larger.

Depending  your personal style the ceiling light can be replaced with anything from a contemporary spotlight cluster to an ornate mini-chandelier.
