Bathroom mirror with lights adds glamour
West End stars might see their names in lights every day, but you can see your face in lights each morning and evening with a beautiful mirror with light. Whether you’re trying to add some extra lighting to a bathroom that lacks natural light or just appreciate the flattering glow of a lighted mirror, the most energy-efficient and stylish choice is to install a modern mirror with LED lights. Well, who doesn’t want to start and end their day feeling just a little bit famous? A mirror brings to mind the golden age of Hollywood, when impossibly beautiful movie stars posed and preened in their dressing rooms and mirrors surrounded by lights reflected back their perfectly-lit faces. If you want to add a bit of vintage luxury and style to your bathroom (or dressing room!) then a mirror with lights is a must-have accessory. As these come in many shapes and sizes, you can always find the right model for your needs. For instance, this little round makeup/shaving mirror from Smedbo is a great entry point if you want the convenience of an LED mirror without the commitment of a full-sized wall mirror. On the other end of the scale, impressive rectangular ones like this 1000mm long luxury model from HIB are large enough to do duty over a big double vanity.
You can choose from framed or unframed styles, and there’s also a huge range of light configurations or a mirror with a single strip of lighting at the top or a line down each side, or even completely encircled with light. Some LED mirrors, like this stylish Hudson Reed model, even incorporate extra features such as a dedicated shaver socket and demisting pad. Available in a variety of colours, sizes and shapes, and there are lots of other features to choose from, such as digital clocks, fluorescent backlighting, and even a dazzling 3-dimensional one, which will make your bathroom the star attraction of your home. This is also called an infinity mirror.
The Modern Age Mirror
As we mentioned, mirrors with lights have been around for decades, so why are LED mirrors so special? It’s all in the technology, and has a powerful list of advantages over traditional incandescent or fluorescent lighting choices.
- Energy saving and environmentally sound. LED stands for “light emitting diodes”. By using the movement of electrons to convert electricity to light very efficiently, they can save you a lot on your energy bill, and use 75% less energy than standard incandescent lights.
- Long lasting and durable. Because LEDs don’t have a filament, they are much less fragile than a traditional light bulb. They last an average of 10 times longer than a comparable compact fluorescent light, and much longer again than incandescents
- Natural, pure white light. The realistic light emitted by LEDs mimics daylight, which makes them ideal for applying makeup. No more walking outdoors to discover your face is the wrong colour!
LED mirrors are a big step up in terms of technology, functionality, and style, and they give your bathroom a contemporary edge that traditional mirrors just can’t match. While some LED mirrors are considerably more expensive than mirrors without lights, in some circumstances they can be a smart financial move, ensuring that you have enough light to apply makeup or shave without having to install separate lighting.
You need to know - an LED light, often said to be dimmable, can be dimmable only with the help of a supporting dimmer compatible to the LED light, without which, the lights give out intolerable issues of flickering. But at QS Supplies, all the products we list are backed by manufacturer’s guarantee, so you don’t have to worry about the bulbs. You can easily get a replacement if you find such issues.
