Why do you need a bathroom mirror? This might seem like an obvious question. You want to look good while freshening up which in itself is not a bad thing. However, before you purchase a bathroom mirror, you must consider some things.
Foremost in your consideration for a bathroom mirror is how your bathroom looks and the designs you have in place. Do you have a simple design or a complex modern design?
Whatever might be the case, a mirror can completely transform the look of your bathroom. And whether it’s a big space or tiny, it doesn’t matter. Mirror magic happens nevertheless.
Even better if your bathroom has amazing fitted furniture for the storage of simple bathroom materials, then a simple mirror would do. Otherwise, if your bathroom is small then you can go for a mirror with inbuilt storage cabinets.
Also, bathroom cabinet mirrors come in various shapes and sizes, you would be confused about which one to go for. From single cabinet doors to double doors, the possibilities are endless. However, you should go for cabinet types that suit your bathroom space and décor.
Choosing the appropriate size of a bathroom mirror
BATHROOM MIRRORS come in various shapes from arch mirrors to full-length mirrors that choosing the perfect one can seem like searching for a needle in a hay-sack. And a mirror that looks like the best thing in the store might look very ordinary or even out of place in your home. The more reason why you should be careful while taking measurements.
A simple technique is sketching out the shape of the mirror you want in your bathroom and have this sketch attached to your bathroom wall. This way, you’ll have a feel of what it would look like when you eventually order your bathroom mirror from Fab glass and mirror.
You see, having a set template and testing it on your bathroom wall will show you what works and what doesn’t. Perhaps after setting your mind on a full-length mirror, you discover on testing your template that a full-length mirror would be terrible with your kind of bathroom setting.
While most homeowners prefer rectangular BATHROOM MIRRORS, getting the measurements wrong would break the spell. Right at the top of the sink is a favorite spot in modern homes for installing mirrors.
It is better to place mirrors placed about half a meter from the sink and two meters from the door to avoid the swinging door crushing the glass or covering your line of sight.
Choosing a suitable type and style
LED front-lighted or Illuminated Mirrors
Illuminated mirrors with LED lights are the new rave. The technology helps to illuminate your whole bathroom. And rightly so, this type of mirror creates the perfect environment for your shaving and makeup application.
I recommend this type of mirror for your bathroom because getting your makeover right would do a lot for your appeal; so, why wouldn’t you take it seriously? Although modern bathroom fancies a windowless setting, this is not a concern with illuminated mirrors as they emit light that creates the same effect as natural light.
Imagine being able to dance to your favorite song while having a shower on your way to a very important meeting. This is only possible with Bluetooth mirrors that make listening to music on the go a reality. As the water caresses your skin, the music soothes your soul – a wonderful experience.
Bluetooth mirrors are the newest technology in town. You see, your phone or laptop could get wet in the bathroom that would be a big inconvenience. Connecting wirelessly to your mirror eliminates all the errors you might make and safeguards your electronic gadgets from water damage. This eliminates the stress of installing a sound system in your bathroom.
Mirror with Shaver Socket
Shaving doesn’t have to be something you dread anymore. Modern bathroom mirror units come with shaver sockets often located at the bottom right-hand corner to give you enough flexibility. The handy socket can also be used to charge your electric toothbrush.
Bathroom mirrors with heated demisters
Idea that is even more interesting is the combination of mirrors with heated demisters. The heated demisters in the glass make regular cleaning of your bathroom mirror outdated. Its anti-fog nature prevents it from steaming up during bath – saving you ample time and considerable energy used in cleaning. Your mirror will always be clear and sparkling.
Perhaps the idea of having a Bluetooth or illuminated mirror in your bathroom sounds too exotic for your taste. Then mirror cabinets would do the trick for you. While offering you enough storage options, you get to choose the sleekest design to match the size and style of your bathroom. And considering the variety of mirror cabinets available in the market, you will probably knock yourself out.
A considerable number of homeowners are leaning towards vanity mirrors because of their range of sizes, shapes, and styles. And getting the right one is no difficult task. You must, however, make your choice on whether you want it double or highly decorative. However, for modern bathroom design, a frameless vanity mirror would do the trick all too well. Even for smaller spaces as well as larger ones, vanity mirrors are still the way to go – making your space appear larger than it is.
Selection of shape
Although most BATHROOM MIRRORS are rectangular in shape, there are a lot of shapes available at Fab Glass and Mirror (oval, square, round, and rectangular) for you to choose from. And being the most versatile, rectangular-shaped mirrors give a softer and more relaxed tone to your bathroom. It doesn’t mean other shapes are horrible.
While I would always recommend a rectangular-type, round mirrors are also capable of transforming your space – making sure that you’re relaxed. You must, however, stick to what works for you. Showing some element of class and elegance is, however, only possible with an oval mirror which is unparalleled in style and shows exotic taste.
