Bar lighting fixtures give can give off either diffused lighting or focused lighting, depending upon the shade that is used. For this reason, the area of usage will determine the exact kind of shade that will suit the purpose. Bar lighting fixtures are also commonly used in bathrooms. Other areas of the house also merit the use of bar lights, but bathrooms are the most popular place of use for them.
Bar lights are a series of small light sources mounted on a metal bar. This bar is attached to the wall above your sink or counter top. These lights are very versatile and are usually dressed up with either upward- or downward-facing glass shades. This is done to focus the light from the lamp on to a particular surface if downward facing, and to bounce light off the ceiling if upward facing.
Some bar lighting fixtures incorporate more than one shade. This enables one bar lighting fixture to be used for a larger area like a long counter or a double sink. The shades can be chosen to match the bathroom tiles and accentuate the décor of the room. The shades for bar lighting fixtures are generally available in white, frosted, or translucent glass. The metal parts of such fixtures are generally made of shiny chrome, polished brass, nickel, or may even sport an antique finish.
Vanity globes are a variation of bar lights. These are round, white, glass globes that completely encase the light bulbs. A stylish and classy accessory, these vanity globes are generally used to add an element of style to a place that is often on public display. This kind of a light fixture gives off a strong, diffused light. Used above dressing tables it gives off the perfect kind of lighting for dressing. Globes look best over a narrow sink, a dressing table, or in a guest bathroom to impart a classy look.
