Illuminated Mirrors Do Double Duty in the Bath

When planning your bathroom design scheme, there are two essential ingredients, no matter the space or style you’re working with: lights and mirrors.

But, with a seemingly endless choice of different products for both lighting and bathroom mirrors on the market, it’s hard to know where to start to find a combination that will work together.

One popular option, of course, is to install wall lights either side of your mirror, which can be a stylish and practical choice, but might not suit your overall bathroom design scheme or even your space. They also require a fair amount of time and resources to install.

This is where an illuminated mirror comes into play. It’s a streamlined, two-for-one choice for vanity lighting in the bath.

The Imola LED Mirror does just that–combines a functional bathroom mirror with LED lighting into a decorative, yet functional, must-have for this all-important room.  This two-in-one design perfectly complements any modern or contemporary bathroom style and can really add value to the space due to their sleek, high-end looking aesthetic.

Installation is far simpler and more cost effective thanks to just one point of wiring, compared to placing multiple wall lights and mirrors separately. Less wiring means that the illuminated mirror is more pared back, less intrusive and can lie virtually flat against your wall.

Depending on your bathroom and wall space, there are various size options of illuminated mirrors available. Take the Astro Avlon 1200, for example, which is a larger mirror at 47.24”. These have the added bonus of covering far more area with light.
