LED bathroom mirror

Buying a new mirror may seem like a simple task, but with so much choice on the market it can be a little overwhelming knowing where to start. That’s where we come in, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide to tell you all the benefits of installing an LED bathroom mirror, so you can decide if it’s a worthwhile investment for your bathroom. Let’s start with what exactly an LED bathroom mirror is.

What’s an LED mirror?

An LED mirror in simple terms is a mirror with the addition of LED bulbs. This could be anything from strip lights around the side of the mirror to create a ‘back-lit’ effect or bulbs straight on the front to create a vintage vanity LED mirror style. 

LED mirrors come in all shapes, sizes and styles so you’ll always be able to find one that suits the space you’re putting it in. They can also be battery operated or hooked up to the electricity depending how you want to attach them and what kind of home you’re putting them in. For example you may need to be able to easily remove it if you’re in a rented property, so a battery operated LED mirror would be the best choice for you. 

There are so many benefits to having an LED mirror in your space. We’ve put together our favourites to help you decide if you want one in your bathroom, here are our top five:

Create more space

Mirrors naturally trick us into believing there’s more space in a room by reflecting the walls back at the viewer. The bigger the mirror the bigger the illusion of space, add light from an LED mirror and even a small bathroom can look much more spacious. 

Another great way to create the illusion of space is to paint walls a lighter colour. White bathrooms feel spacious and airy, whereas darker shades can tend to box a room in.


Get a clear view

LED mirrors are incredibly flattering, this is why you’ll often see influencers using a light ring when filming. They’re also great for making sure your make-up is flawless as they’ll easily show up anything that’s amiss, for example a foundation line. The light from an LED mirror is also good for plucking and shaving, for example easily identifying stray eyebrow hairs or left over patches of beard hair.


Add some ambiance

Are you someone who loves long hot baths? Then an LED bathroom mirror may be for you. Alongside lovely candles, turn on your mirror for an ambient glow that doesn’t have the harshness of a main light. Instant calm while still seeing what you’re doing. This works especially well with warm light LED mirrors.


Gain extra storage

Many LED bathroom mirrors can double up as storage cupboards, like the Hydra Triple Door LED Mirror Cabinet, giving you more room for products without taking up floor space. Simply mount above your sink and store things you need to reach easily, like toothbrushes, toothpaste, face washes and razors.


Love the look

The final reason you’ll love an LED mirror is the look of it. There are so many different styles and shapes to choose from that whether you’re sporting a classic or modern bathroom you’ll find one that complements your space. LED bathroom mirrors bring a touch of class to the room. So if you’re on a budget, try buying a more basic suite teamed with a stylish LED mirror and more expensive taps. This will make the whole room feel more put together and considered without breaking the bank.
