Add function and a fabulous feature in your bathroom with a backlit bathroom LED mirror.
When renovating a bathroom, it is now easier than ever to create a spa like oasis in the comfort of home. There are a wide variety of amazing yet affordable bathroom products available that can make the daily bathroom routine feel like a resort getaway. High-end hotel and resort bathroom designs combine calming tones, texture and lighting to create a relaxing environment. When renovating the home, while paint and tile choices are painstakingly selected, lighting is quite often an afterthought. Lighting in any room in the home plays an imperative role and ideally, should be layered.
Generally, there are three basic types of lighting.
“Ambient” lighting has the primary objective to light an entire room or area. It is commonly provided by way of ceiling lights, down lights, lamps, pendant lights or chandelier. Regardless of what product is used, ambient lighting should be bright enough and positioned to light the entire space.
“Task” lighting is required for practical purposes such as a lamp at a desk or over a chair for reading, under cabinet lighting for cooking, an outdoor spotlight to illuminate a bbq or pathway, or bathroom vanity lighting for applying makeup and shaving.
“Accent” lighting enhances a focal point. It may be used to highlight a particular piece, characteristic, or create a feature in itself. Accent lighting is commonly used in the home to highlight artwork, sculptures and decor on shelving. In the bathroom, accent lighting may be utilised to draw attention to a feature wall or decorative niche.
Bathroom LED mirrors are both functional and fabulous. They provide an effective task lighting that is perfect for makeup application, tweezing and shaving, and emit a calming accent light that creates a stunning feature in the bathroom. Pairing a white floating vanity with an LED mirror in front of a dark and moody tiled wall creates an amazing bathroom feature. The light that an LED mirror provides plays with textured tiles, highlighting their detail and patterns to produce a striking focal point.
Layering accent lighting can be achieved by combining the installation of both an LED backlit mirror and under-cabinet lighting. Under-cabinet lighting can be set with a sensor to turn on automatically with movement and turn off with a timer. This provides a safe passageway at night without disturbing other members of the household with bright lighting, particularly ideal in ensuite bathrooms.
LED mirrors are available in an array of shapes, sizes and finishes to perfectly suit any bathroom design. Remer have a spectacular range of LED bathroom mirrors that come with some handy features. Such as a demister to ensure that the mirror remains clear to provide the perfect illuminated reflection, regardless of how long and steamy a shower may have been, and Bluetooth so you can enjoy your favourite music while getting ready for the day.
Shaving cabinets are ideal for providing extra storage in the bathroom and they too come with an LED mirror option. So there’s no need to sacrifice function for a bit of flair. No matter which style you choose, an LED mirror is an inclusion to consider for your bathroom renovation.
