Lighten up! 5 benefits of an illuminated mirror

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 8 years ago 2 min read

No matter who you are or what your style is, everyone needs a good bathroom mirror.

It's extremely rare to find a bathroom without a mirror in it. So when it comes to picking the right mirror it is important that you go for the right one.

Here are our top 5 benefits of an illuminated mirror…

1. A size to fit

When browsing for an illuminated mirror you will see that they come in all shapes and sizes and designs. Which is perfect as, typically, the biggest problem in a bathroom is the limited space available. So, with such a wide choice, finding a mirror that fits your room should be a much easier task.

Not only do you have multiple options to fit your space, but an illuminated mirror will help to light up your space giving the illusion of more space.

2. Provides ambient lighting

A double benefit of an illuminated mirror is that you'll, quite literally, start to see yourself in a better light, and you'll also benefit from the ambient lighting in your bathroom. Simply fill the tub with warm water and your favourite bubbles, turn off the main lights and leave the soft light of the mirror on and you've got yourself a subtly lighted soak.

3. Used by the whole family

An illuminated mirror is not just for the makeup-appliers out there, but for all of the members of your family. That's right, an illuminated mirror will also benefit the shavers and hair stylers of all ages. Better lighting means lower risk of cutting your skin when shaving or even a hair product mishap (ever heard the expression "Did you get dressed in the dark this morning?"!).

4. Adds glamour to your home

If you think about it, your bathroom is a room that most visitors to your home will use. Having a Hollywood style light up mirror is a great way to impress people who drop in. It's a simple way to add a touch of glamour to your house without having to redecorate or even spend a shed load of cash.

5. Lowers your energy bills

The majority of illuminated mirrors use LED bulbs which last a lot longer than typical bulbs, saving you pennies on replacements. Also LED bulbs use less energy than a standard bulb, meaning they will cost you less in energy bills.
