Cause for Reflection: Seven Modern Bathroom Mirror Ideas

Bathroom mirrors were once largely functional items for tasks such as shaving or applying make up, but now they are not only a stylish feature but also incorporate modern technology. There has never been so much choice when it comes to selecting the ideal mirror for your bathroom. Here’s a look at some of the best ideas.

Defogging mirrors

It can be frustrating to find the bathroom mirror misted up just when you are in a hurry to get ready to go out. Even wiping it with a cloth doesn’t bring great results when it is very damp, leaving smears that can make the visibility unsatisfactory. 

Therefore an anti-mist mirror with built-in heating is an ideal solution, providing a clear reflection even if you have just stepped out of the shower or a steaming hot bath. Enjoy a touch of modern technology to bring convenience to your daily ablutions. 

LED mirrors

Bathroom mirrors are used for tasks that require good lighting to show clear details; especially important if you are shaving or applying make up or beauty products. An excellent modern solution is the LED mirror, which is backlit or has integrated LED strips for optimal brightness. 

They are sleek and contemporary, dispensing with the need for overhead lighting, and operated with a single touch or even contactless method. Elegant and energy efficient, LED mirrors are fast becoming an essential part of the bathroom.

Interactive mirrors

If you want to go one step further, you may wish to consider an interactive mirror. This mirror is integrated with digital technology to provide useful features such as built-in clocks, weather and travel updates, or even access to other smart home devices such as heating and lighting control systems. 

Frameless floor to ceiling mirrors

For a sleek contemporary style, choose a full-size frameless mirror (also known as a full bleed mirror). This can add to the sense of space and light in the bathroom, and enhance the beauty of the tiling and other decorative features. If the mirror is incorporated into a bath or shower enclosure, it is also useful when carrying out personal grooming tasks.

Magnifying mirrors

A magnifying mirror is designed to make tasks such as plucking eyebrows and applying eye make up easier. It can be incorporated into a section of a standard bathroom mirror, or be in two flexible sections, with a regular and plain mirror. The magnified mirror is often incorporated into an LED illuminated mirror.

Unusual shaped mirrors

Bathroom mirrors are no longer just the standard rectangular shape. Choose a shape that reflects the style of your bathroom, such as a retro framed circular mirror, a quirky hexagonal mirror, or a sophisticated oval mirror. 

Mirrored vanity units

Not a new idea, but the mirrored vanity unit will never go out of style, particularly for smaller bathrooms to create more light and make the best use of space.
