Mirrors for Bathrooms
Bathroom mirrors remain an essential practical item, but nowadays come in such a wide range of shapes, sizes and styles that they can make a stunning impact on the appearance of your bathroom.
Sizes and ShapesSquare and rectangular mirrors are popular, but boxy bathrooms can gain style with round or tear-shaped mirrors. Larger mirrors for bathrooms make the room look light and spacious, whilst a narrower, upright bathroom mirror is ideal for those with limited wall space. If a window above the sink prevents placing a mirror there, a small extending shaving mirror could solve the problem. Even freestanding mirrors are available.
Lighting and Extra Features
Backlit bathroom mirrors give your bathroom the ‘wow’ factor. LED lights provide decorative mood lighting, sometimes including colour-changing effects. Illuminated mirrors provide brighter light which can be used without the main bathroom lighting.
Depending on both your budget and your bathroom style, you can include state-of-the-art features such as infinity effect lights, touch sensors – no need for switches - and even motion sensors, which switch on the lights as you approach. Your mirror can include a shaving socket and even a digital clock, to make sure you get to work on time.
If you don't have a great deal of space, a neat and practical way to choose a mirror for bathroom is to opt for a bathroom cabinet with mirrored doors. From a compact, single-door cabinet to a spacious four-door model, these come in sizes to suit every need and styles to suit every taste.
Whilst installation of standard mirrors and mirrored cabinets can be easily managed by a person with reasonable DIY skills, you are always advised to use a qualified electrician to assist with installation of those with back-lighting and other integral electrical features.
