How to choose a bathroom mirror
Can you imagine your bathroom without a mirror? Probably not! The bathroom mirror is one of the most used items in the room (in fact, it is a popular item in many rooms, not just the bathroom.) It not only completes the room aesthetically, but it aids in completing many essential tasks. With ever-evolving technology, it is not just reflecting that mirrors are now used for, but rather they can come with lighting options, demister pads, and even Bluetooth so you can listen to your favourite music. One thing that hasn’t changed though, is the variety of shapes and styles that mirrors come in. Your options are many when it comes to choosing a bathroom mirror and it can be hard to know where to start. In this month’s blog we are going to consider some of the features and factors that should be considered when choosing a bathroom mirror.
One of the primary considerations for choosing a mirror should be the size that you need. If you have a very large bathroom, not only can you choose a mirror of any size, but you could even choose multiple mirrors to hang as a feature on a wall. If you have a smaller bathroom you will need to choose a mirror that is big enough while simultaneously not making the small room look overcrowded. If you are placing your mirror above a vanity unit, it is important that you keep the size in line with the existing unit. A mirror should not be wider than the existing unit and cause it to be thrown out of proportion – similarly, it should not appear shrunken compared to the existing unit. Try to also consider who will be using your mirror within the home and make sure the mirror is an appropriate size and at an appropriate height for all to use.
Mirror shapes are another important consideration. Do you choose square? Rectangle? Round? There are a lot of options to choose from and can be influenced by different factors in your bathroom. In a small bathroom you may be limited with your choice of size, but you can show your style through your shape of mirror. As we mentioned above with mirror sizes, bigger bathrooms can choose to have more than one mirror and make a statement feature on one of their walls. The shape of your mirror may also be influenced by the shape and size of other items in your room such as vanity units or cabinets. You may want to keep the shape in style with these features – or you may want to choose something completely different to stand out.
Mood Living Mirrors Lighting Features
Did you know that our Mood Living mirrors can also come with lighting features? There are a range of options from overhead lighting, to all-around lighting, to decorative lighting. All of our lighting options are designed to be as natural as possible and emulate the light that you would receive from the sun. This means that we use warm white light and not blue light. Warm white light is proven to have many benefits including boosting of energy, boosting of mood and the reduction of headaches and eyestrain. It is very important to have good lighting in your bathroom, especially if you have a small window or if your house is facing a direction that doesn’t get much sunlight. With the addition of our LED mirrors, you will be able to carry out tasks with precision at any time of day.
You can choose additional features in our mirrors aside from just lighting. Our Bluetooth speakers will allow you to listen to your favourite music while keeping your mobile safe from water damage, and our demister pads will keep your mirror steam free – so you can stay in the shower as long as your like and still have a clear reflection when you step out.
