The finishing touches are what make a bathroom, so it is vital that you choose the correct type of bathroom mirror to suit your space. A well-placed bathroom mirror will add style and class to your design, as well as opening up what space you have to offer. We have put together a few ideas to help you choose the right option to complete your bathroom scheme.
Why is it a Good Idea to Add a Mirror to Your Bathroom?
Mirrors are a great way to make your bathroom space feel more open and airy, and give the illusion of a larger room by bouncing light around. Mirrors aren't what they used to be; many have a smart 2 in 1 aspect, whether that's providing illumination, having a Bluetooth™ speaker, or a built in shaver socket. Small bathrooms often lack natural light, so large mirrors are a useful hack to brighten up the space in a bathroom or cloakroom.
Sick of Steamed up Mirrors?
A demisting mirror is carefully designed to repel condensation and retain clarity, so that you can use your mirror even in damp environments. These types of mirrors are ideal for wet rooms, changing rooms and locker rooms. These clever mirrors also look great, so you can blend function with style and enjoy use of your mirror whenever you need it. Many of our mirrors come with this fabulous demister function; take a look at some of our bestsellers below.
A great way to bring light into the bathroom, and to get a clearer reflection, is to choose a backlit, fluorescent, or LED mirror. Not only does the the mirror add a modern feature to your bathroom, you'll also have the illumination necessary for close shaving, applying makeup and other bathroom tasks.

Harbour Glow LED Mirror with Shaver Socket
This mirror has it all: LED illumination, a demister pad to prevent misting and a built in shaver socket. And if that isn't enough, it's all fit into a sleek and simple design. Illuminated mirrors are carefully designed for maximum protection from shocks, and also give you more freedom to place it wherever you'd like it, instead of being tied to one spot by the power socket.

Magnifying mirrors are the ideal tool for close-up personal grooming such as shaving and applying makeup as they give a much clearer reflection. They are also extremely useful for making the most of a small bathroom's available space. Magnifying mirrors are versatile in the way they can make a large room look cosier and more intimate, but also project light across a small, dark room which creates the illusion of space.
