How to choose a bathroom mirror
What to consider when choosing a bathroom mirror that is beautiful and yet functional.
Mirrors and mirror shaving cabinets with built in LED lighting with incorporated dimmer so you can choose between bright make-up lighting to subtle mood lighting. Some models have built in magnifying mirror section and an integrated sound system where you can stream your own music via Bluetooth. Some with Copper free mirrors which are more clearer and brighter than standard mirrors, more environmental and more resistant to atmospheric corrosion such as protection from high moisture environments. And built in Demisters in mirror stops steam fogging and condensation.
Size: Choose a mirror in relation to the location of your vanity. You don’t want your bathroom mirror to be too small, yet you want it to be sightly small in width than your vanity or basin. Will one large mirror suffice or will you opt for a series of mirrors? Have a think about the number of mirrors you need for your bathroom to be functional. However, even if only one mirror is necessary, it can be nice to have multiple. Twin mirrors look great when placed above twin basins. This highlights the fixtures, turning them into a focal point of the bathroom.
Shape: The shape of your mirror/s is an important aspect to consider as it can easily affect the style of your bathroom. A round, porthole shape is a good choice for any classic or contemporary design. Rectangles and other geometric shapes are also great for contemporary designs. Decide on what shape suits your bathroom design and products, whether you are after a classic, deco or contemporary design or if your bathroom products are straight angular lines or soft flowing organic shapes, the most common shapes – round, square, rectangular, oval or you can order a custom shape.
Frame or No Frame : Consider finishes such as brushed or polished chrome, nickel, brass. Match the finish to your tapware and accessory finishes. No frame can also look stunning and make a statement without adding more detail to your bathroom styling
Storage : Another consideration is storage. Storage can be a problem in a small bathroom but every bathroom has a mirror and a shaving cabinet addresses both!
