"The American Lighting Association says the ideal height for installing fixtures above a mirror is about 78 inches." Hum...maybe 7-8 inches? Or from the floor?

I didn't see much encouragement to install wall sconces on a wide mirror. In a large bathroom it is a great way to double the lighting without glare. The only consideration is what you'll see if the light fixture isn't closed in the back. I had both vanities with mirror wall scones and pot was perfect!
