There are two main types of lighted bathroom mirrors: backlit mirrors and LED illuminated mirrors. The wide range of modern lighted bathroom mirrors will definitely offer something to meet different needs, and some of their capabilities are really amazing and a bit unexpected. Apart from lighting your face during the morning routine, such mirrors can, for example, play your favorite music via Bluetooth or other wireless protocol.

There are LED bathroom mirrors and backlit mirrors. LED mirrors are equipped with highly effective waterproof rated IP44 LED lights. Backlit bathroom mirrors are usually equipped with fluorescent tube lights, that are also waterproof rated IP44. Still, you may find versions with more effective LEDs as well. Some products are equipped with additional features like Bluetooth Audio, demister pads, infra-red sensors, shaver sockets and some more.

Lighted mirrors come in a wide range of styles and designs so any homeowner will easily find the one that perfectly matches the overall theme of a bathroom. Try not to forget about your bathroom theme when you see a beautiful mirror with lots of features as it might ruin the whole design. Buying a modern mirror for a vintage styled bathroom is not a brilliant idea, as well as opting for a gorgeous retro framed mirror for a contemporary and sophisticated interior. These are obvious things, but you'd be surprised if you knew how much people are making this mistake time after time, so it's definitely worth additional attention.

Before buying a lighted mirror, take another look at your bathroom and imagine where the new mirror will be placed. The space available, the other sources of light, the placement of windows and bathroom fixtures will affect the size and shape of a new mirror. A simple rule is that the mirror size should correspond the width of your bathroom vanity or sink. Try some other options with 3D-modeling software, or consult with a professional designer if you prefer unique solutions.
