Why should I use an illuminated mirror in my bathroom?
The over basin mirror in the bathroom is the equivalent of the desk in the office. It is the hub of operations, where most of the ‘work’ takes place. When choosing a bathroom mirror, we have several options, but most effective is a solution that illuminates both sides of the face to ensure an even, flattering glow with no shadows for example the Tec-79608 from Endon which also has a built-in demister and shaver socket. You can achieve this with either an illuminated mirror or wall lights positioned either side of the mirror.
We need mirror lights because we often block the general lighting when we stand in front of the mirror. This causes shadows to form on your face. To prevent shadows an illuminated mirror is used in the bathroom as an additional light source. These lamps have a very good colour rendering of at least Ra>80 and are completely free from glare.
Every basin needs a mirror, so illuminated mirrors provide a simple two-in-one solution. Some also incorporate shaver sockets. Choose from mirrors with integrated horizontal or vertical lighting. Some clever products also provide ambient lighting by giving a gentle wash of light behind the mirror which illuminates the wall and makes it appear to float such as the Endon Esprit 79604, this mirror also has the latest CCT technology meaning you can change between cool and warm white.
