The majority of people already know the benefits of choosing bathroom mirrors with lights, so it is no surprise that they are an immensely popular accessory for people to purchase when they are having a new bathroom put into their home.
The immeasurable popularity of these items is part of the reason that there are so many different types and styles of these bathroom accessories available on the market today. Here is a guide to some of the different types of bathroom mirrors with lights which are available to buy today:
1. Top-lit Mirrors
As the name suggests this type of mirror is lit from the top. The light may be provided by a few individual lamps, or the mirror may be lit by one strip type light along the top. Although this type of mirror is well lit, it may be unsuitable for some shorter people, because the light may cast some unflattering shadows on their faces, due to the positions of the lamp. They should usually be used in conjunction with a main room light, to give the best possible illumination.
2. Side-lit Mirrors
These mirrors are illuminated via lamps at either side. It is good to have lamps at either side of your face, in order to allow your whole face to be illuminated fully. Having lamps at either side of your face can help to prevent the light from casting unsightly shadows. This product can be used on its own or in conjunction with a main bathroom light.
3. Back-lit Mirrors
Back-lit mirrors are lit in a special way, using lamps which are behind the glass of the mirror. They usually offer a soft light, which will illuminate the whole face in a natural manner. Although backlit mirrors can be more expensive to purchase than some other styles of mirror, they are great for bathrooms where the amount of space is limited. They also offer effective mood lighting in the bathroom area.
4. Integrated Medicine Cabinet Mirrors
These are a form of lit mirror which is attached to an integrated medicine cabinet unit. This is another type of mirror which is great for bathrooms that have limited space, because they increase the amount of storage space which is available in the bathroom.
As well having lighting which illuminates the front of the unit, many units also have lights inside the medicine cabinet area, so that it is incredibly easy to find anything which is stored within.
5. LED-lit Mirrors
LED lit mirrors produce a light which is very close to that of the daylight spectrum, so they seem to offer a more natural kind of light. Therefore, they are one of the most “truthful” mirrors available, because they allow you to see how you will look in the natural light.
One of the best things about this type of mirror is the fact that LED lights are very energy efficient, so using one of these bathroom accessories could help to save you money, as well as helping to protect the environment.
