An LED bathroom mirror is an aesthetic and functional addition to your bathroom! They come in various shapes, sizes and finishes, and often even have unique features. Having these mirrors in your space will brighten it up and enhance the visual beauty of the room. They also help you see more clearly for an even better experience when using a shaver socket to shave or applying make-up etc. Imagine going to the bathroom, and being greeted by one of these gorgeous mirrors. It's going to be fabulous, and you'll never want to leave!
Even though they are bathroom mirrors with lights, you're free to mount them anywhere in your home. It can be in your vanity room, bedroom, walk-in wardrobe or any other place that you think these lights will make an excellent addition.
How do LED Bathroom Mirrors Work?
Aside from having an integrated LED light in the mirror, and most of the time a de-mister pad so that you can still see your reflection when the bathroom is steamy; bathroom lights are no different from a standard mirror. You will still use them to check if your appearance is presentable for your meeting or if you want to see if you're applying enough cream on your face. Unfortunately, these mirrors don't have a filter like your phone (that would be awesome though!) or have the ability to screen capture your skincare routine.
One of the reasons why LED illuminated bathroom mirrors are gaining traction is because of their functionality. You'll be able to shave neatly or apply your eyeliner correctly because you have a lighting source directly on your mirror. Aside from that, some LED mirrors have a QI charger, extra shelving storage, speakers or even a razor socket.
How to Fit LED Mirrors in the Bathroom?
While you're interested in DIYing the installation, it's still best to ask for a professional since they know all the hazards that come with these types of tasks - especially in a room where water and steam are present. However, if you know what you are doing and you understand the dangers when dealing with electrics, then here's a simple guide:
- Measure and mark the location where you’ll be installing your mirror.
- Install the wall brackets that come with your mirror. Some models are hanging, so for those, you might see a ceiling bracket instead.
- Hang the mirror temporarily to check if the position is perfect. If not, make the necessary adjustments.
- Add the mirror's electrical connection (better get a professional for this) and close the socket.
- Switch it on and see if it’s working.
Do LED Bathroom Mirrors Need Electricity?
If you want mirrors with LED lights to work, then you will need electricity. However, if you're worried that it will not do its primary function (show your reflection), don't be. You can still use the mirror cabinets without any problems. The only question is, why bother getting an LED mirror that you won't light up?
You have the choice to connect your LED mirrors to the mains or power them via battery. But whatever happens, these sleek and lovely mirrors need electricity to function to their total capacity! Without power, you won’t be able to use its demister pad, tunable colour feature (some models), QI charger (some models), and razor socket (some models). You don't want to miss out on all these exciting functions, right?
Do LED Mirrors Use a Lot of Electricity?
As mentioned above, LED bathroom mirrors do require electricity. Although, how much electricity do LED mirrors actually use? Since these mirrors feature LED lighting, you will find that they do not demand as much electricity in comparison to traditional lightbulbs such as incandescent and fluorescent. This means that you are free to use the lights on your LED bathroom mirrors as much as you like, without worrying about spending too much on your electricity bills.
