The older we get, the more light (or illumination) we seem to need. Once I turned 50, it seemed my eyesight was not what it used to be! We started buying reading glasses by the pallet from Costco and I still find myself always looking for a pair!
One place where good lighting is essential, at any age, is the bathroom.
Overhead lighting is a given, but side-lighting on the mirrors is vital.
We have found clients really appreciate the LED bathroom lights on the sides of the mirror.
If your decor does not allow for this, perhaps a more traditional sconce can also work well.
