An essential component of any well-lit and oft-used bathroom, bathroom mirror lights pack a powerful punch for practical, attractive task lighting. Simple and easy to style, these fixtures come in a range of shapes and looks that can really take your bathroom lighting design to the next level. Bathroom mirrors require special considerations for task lighting — the type of lightning required to perform specific tasks like shaving and applying makeup. Your bathroom is the space where you’ll start and end your day and you’ll want to have functional lighting for chores like shaving, makeup application, and hair styling. Bathrooms of all sizes will benefit from these tips and tricks, from the spacious and spa-like to petite powder rooms. Those looking for vanity lights for a small bathroom or half bath lighting have just as many opportunities for bathroom beautification as those with a more sprawling layout!
Illuminated LED Mirrors have it all when it comes to form and function. With the tiny profile of LED lighting it’s very easy to integrate this lighting technology into or behind a decorative mirror. Lighting designers love the idea of including functional light into a mirror while not compromising on the overall design aesthetic. Today let us show you very small edge profiles, mirrors hanging , dusted crystal inlays, and warm woods and metals. Black and brass finishes are becoming more popular so now there are lighted mirrors with those finishes to complement modern bathroom designs. LED mirrors eliminate the need for flanking wall sconces or a vanity light bar above which helps free up the space to focus on tile or wallpaper. In fact, some LED mirrors backlight the wall behind to help the wall treatment become the star in the room. We always advise integrating a recessed LED downlight with a spot beam spread optic to focus on the sink. This is the main work area and highlights the vanity finished surface you have chosen. Some illuminated mirrors are better than others at the actual amount of task lighting produced. In a powder room that is not used for daily personal maintenance a lumen level of 800 lumens is sufficient coupled with the downlight. In a bathroom that requires good lumen output for tasks, a light level of 1500 and up would be best. Below are some more decorative LED mirrors that may integrate well into your space.
