36" is a pretty standard bathroom mirror height. Most medicine cabinets will be okay with this space too. So I'd take the height of the vanity, plus the height of the backspash, plus 36 inches. Then add two or three inches and plan the bottom edge of the light fixture there. You can adjust this depending on what kind of fixture you plan. A fixture with pendant lights might need more height than a simple bar fixture with lights straight out.
