I recently came across this industrial vanity light that you could hang above the mirror in a bathroom. I love the simplicity of it, and that you can get the brightness of 4 bulbs with a single electrical installation.
What’s cool is that you don’t have to already have an industrial-styled bathroom (or any room for that matter). As you can see from the photo below, these industrial wall lamps are large enough and stylish enough to change the look of a room all by themselves.
I really like this about industrial and vintage decor. You really get a big bang for your buck. Plus, you don’t have to spend a lot of time or money decorating.

How to Get the Most Value from Your Industrial Light
You may noticed that there are lots of handmade industrial lights for sale online. You can find them through Etsy, Amazon, eBay and more.
They can get expensive, considering the materials that it takes to construct the actual lamp. However, their uniqueness and style often surpass the cost. That said, it doesn’t hurt to shop around to find the best price.
There is a really cool idea that I got from the photo on the left. Can you see it? When you hang your industrial vanity lamp above a bathroom mirror, it appears to be double the size. The reflection from the mirror brightens the room even more.
When used in this way, it increases the value of this industrial wall lamp even more.
By the way, this vanity light can save you about $125 over other similar handmade industrial pipe and cage lamps.
