When you step into a new bathroom, the first thing you see is probably the mirror. If not, you would certainly notice if the mirror was missing! Choosing the perfect mirror can really put the finishing touches on your washroom, and it can be a cost-effective way of updating tired, old decor.
Why Bathroom Mirrors Are So Important
Bathroom mirrors are not just an integral part of any bathroom; they’re an excellent way to update your washroom without breaking the bank. If you’re a makeup or skincare lover you probably understand that powder room mirrors have a multitude of practical uses. Besides the obvious practical applications, your bathroom mirror can also be useful in transforming the room.
Mirrors bounce light around the room. This means that they can help create the illusion of a more spacious, airy bathroom. This is particularly important if your powder room is on the small side.
They Make the Room Feel Bigger
As we mentioned, mirrors reflect light around the room. This additional light can help to open up even the tiniest of spaces. Light can help to add a sense of spaciousness.
For smaller rooms, place a bathroom mirror on the wall opposing the window. This will not only enhance the natural light and transport it around the room, but it will almost mimic a window.
The Impression of More Space
Bathroom mirrors can really alleviate your bathroom and give the impression of more space. If you have a smaller washroom or en suite, you might be tempted to opt for a smaller mirror, but you don’t have to.
In fact, choosing a larger mirror can act as a space creator. A large, frameless mirror can reflect the room back to you, creating the illusion of a larger room.
Creating a Style Statement
Updating your bathroom mirror can be an easy, cost-effective way of updating your bathroom. You can choose a mirror that blends seamlessly with the rest of your washroom decor, or you can be bold and choose a statement piece.

Which Should I Choose - Standard Bathroom Mirrors or LED?
Both LED and standard bathroom mirrors have their advantages and which you choose is totally up to you. It all depends on the look you wish to achieve in your bathroom, the size and brightness of your bathroom, and how you use your mirror.
Standard bathroom mirrors can offer a classic, timeless option that fits in with any style. Bathroomstore.ie stocks an extensive range of framed and frame-less mirrors that are sure to look stunning in your washroom.

Not only do they amp up the lighting to help brighten the room, but they can also act as a modern version of the classic Hollywood mirror. As we mentioned, this is perfect for anyone who wears makeup or shaves. It’s also excellent for hair stylers.
LED mirrors offer soft, ambient lighting, rather than a harsh bright light, so it won’t make your washroom feel clinical or cold. Quite the opposite! LED lighting is a warm, subtle lighting option that creates an at-home-spa feel in your bathroom. This is the perfect lighting choice for indulgent, relaxing baths.
