When you’re going about your daily routine, it’s easy to forget how vital a mirror can be. Whether it’s getting ready in the morning or brushing your teeth before bed, we all spend time looking in the mirror at some point in the day. As they get used so much, it’s important that you pick a mirror that suits you. It can seem like there is endless choice these days and sometimes it’s hard to strike the balance between functionality and style. If you’re looking for a new mirror to add to your bathroom, let’s break down some of the most popular kinds to help you figure out which is right for you.
A full length mirror is handy to have in any part of the house but, if you’re lucky you might have space for one in the bathroom. This will allow you to have some privacy when having a look at your outfit or if you’re trying to shave your legs in the shower and can’t see the most hard to reach places. A full length mirror can save space if it is fixed onto the wall but, before you go shopping for one, measure up the space you have and see if you can easily fit one in. There is plenty of choice out there at the moment from cheap and cheerful to gorgeous antique designs that will add some style to your bathroom. You can even get ones that pull out to reveal some extra storage and some that have added technology to sync your with iPod or phone!
If you don’t have the space for a full length mirror, or have different requirements, a mirrored cabinet is a great addition to any bathroom. You can store away your toiletries and medications if you need to take anything before bed. This will also be out of reach from children. Mirrored cabinets are usually quite reasonably priced and last a long time. Instead of taking up room, like a full length, this will maximise the space you have in your bathroom. One thing to check, if you have a small bathroom, is that you have enough room once the doors are open. Alternatively, you can get mirrored cabinets that have sliding doors, if you don’t have much room.
This final option perfectly marries up fashion and function for a glamorous (and very useful) bathroom mirror. The illuminated mirror comes in many different styles from the glamorous Hollywood types fresh from a celebrity dressing room to futuristic infinity mirrors like the ones from Pebble Grey. In the winter months especially, bathrooms often suffer with a lack of lighting. A lit mirror will solve that problem and allow you to perfectly apply your makeup in the morning. If you are looking to add one of these to your bathroom, it’s important to make sure you have a power supply as these will need electricity to run.
