personal preference, it should be high enough so that it doesn't interfer with the faucet. Other than that, there is no "right" place to put it.

How high should a bathroom mirror be?

A bathroom mirror should be at about eye level, and certainly not above it. Ideally, the bathroom mirror is above the sink. When in doubt, gather a group representative of those who would be using the bathroom mirror. Find a spot that everyone is satisfied with. Try not to make anyone stoop or strain upwards to see anything in the mirror, but consider that kids will most likely grow, so plan ahead where it applies.

How high should you hang a mirror?

Depending on the location... a standard bathroom mirror should be placed with the top of the reflective surface around six to ten inches above eye level. On the back of a door or on an alternate wall: full length should have a five to eight inch clearance from the floor/trim while a 'portrait' mirror should be hung similar to bathroom guidelines. Decorative mirrors are completely up in the air depending on taste.

In a new construction home I would like to know how far up on the wall in a bathroom above the sink you put the light box?

Depends on what type mirror and light you are going to install. If you do not know at this time just pull the wire into the wall, and leave it hanging down about 1 foot above the center of the sink above the counter top inside the wall cavity. Once you install the counter top, pick the mirror, and light, you can cut a hole in the drywall and install a pop-in box and pull the wire out. A plastic pop-in box will easily hold most bathroom lights. If you know the size mirror and light combination. Mount the light box above the mirror so as the bottom of the light is about 1" above the top of the mirror. The light itself not the light mounting base. You do not want the light shining into the mirror.
