Mirrors are an essential part of all the bathrooms, regardless of size or frequency of used. Choosing the right mirror can really make your bathroom ‘fashion’. When you're choosing a mirror, you should also give some thought to where it's going to be installed, what types of mirror, and how that will affect the feel of the bathroom. A large, well-placed mirror can easily help to create the illusion of extra space.
Simplest Bathroom Mirrors
The simplest bathroom mirrors are hung on the wall, like a picture. These mirrors are relatively cheap and easy to install or replace. You can install them by yourself most of time. The cost of this kind of mirror depends largely on the frame and cut of the glass. If you are going to choose a simple hanging mirror, just think about how it will look with a frame that matches your fittings and overall colour scheme of your bathroom.
Frameless mirrors can be mounted directly to the wall, usually using some sort of adhesive. The edges of these types of mirrors are normally polished smooth and rounded to prevent accidents. These mirrors seem to hang on nothing, which can make for some interesting effects, and can be ordered to the exact size you need.
In the case of normal use, the bathroom will have a lot of water vapor. So a fogless mirrors will be important to us.Non-fog surface treatments include sprays and semi-permanent water-repellant coatings that may be applied to the front surface of the mirror. In most cases these treatments will need to be re-applied over time to maintain the same effect.
The fog occurs on mirrors as a result of the temperature difference between the mirror and the surrounding air. By reducing this, installing a low-powered heating elements on the rear surface of the mirror. These systems are able to reduce or completely eliminate the amount of condensation that appears on the mirror.
However, mirror heating systems also consume electricity. If you're considering one, remember don’t install it by yourself and pay attention to how much power it will consume.
LED Illuminated Mirrors
The LED illuminated mirrors are gradually becoming popular. The outstanding feature of it was
the lights fitted to the edges of the mirror. These can look great, can provide an alternative light source to the main bathroom light on the ceiling, and help especially when you're applying makeup or shaving. If you are considering an illuminated mirror, look for one where the light source is either evenly spread around the frame, or comes only from both sides of the mirror. Mirrors that illuminate only from the top, bottom or one side will cast strange shadows on your face, which won’t appear anywhere other than in front of your mirror. Illuminated mirrors will require additional electric wiring, so make sure to factor this into your budget.
