6 great reasons to choose a backlit mirror for your bathroom



Here are 6 reasons an LED backlit mirror is a must-have accessory for any bathroom

Why backlit mirrors are much more than a simple functional accessory

When it comes to interior design, mirrors not only serve a functional purpose, but are a way to stamp your own style and personality on a space. This is particularly true when it comes to the bathroom, that most intimate of rooms.

Choosing a bathroom mirror is a task that shouldn’t be taken lightly, because your decision will impact the entire décor and atmosphere. After all, this is an essential element that manages to combine aesthetics and practicality, so it’s important to find the right solution.

Backlighting is not merely a decorative feature but also highly functional. In a room where light plays a key role, it’s fundamental to have an even source of illumination that helps prevent harsh shadows forming in your reflection. This obviously makes operations such as shaving and applying make-up much easier!

That said, we shouldn’t discount its aesthetic advantages, as a backlit mirror improves the perception of space in your bathroom, while also creating a relaxing, intimate atmosphere.


Enhanced, even lighting

The first two advantages of a backlit mirror are, unsurprisingly, related to lighting, which is always a crucial aspect in interior design, but even more so in bathrooms. The enhanced level of light emitted ensures greater visibility for every angle of your face, making tasks that require particular attention, such as applying make-up, shaving and skin care, significantly easier.

Then there is the fact that the light is distributed evenly, eliminating harsh shadows that can deceive you and alter your visual perception.

Instead, what you get is soft, balanced illumination which also helps create a warm, soothing atmosphere.


Durability and temperature control

The third benefit is that the LED lighting is designed to last, meaning you very rarely need to substitute it. LED lights have an exceptionally long lifespan, so your choice means that you can enjoy the flattering effect and stylish aesthetic of your mirror for many years.

The fourth great reason to choose an LED backlit mirror is that it won’t overheat, making it much easier to manage. This is an advantage that shouldn’t be underestimated as many devices emit too much heat, which can pose a safety risk.

Both these benefits not only improve product quality, but also have a positive environmental impact.


Energy savings and aesthetically pleasing

The green credentials of a backlit mirror also extend to the fact that it consumes very little energy, which is not only great for the environment, but also for power bills.

The good news is that a sustainable choice doesn’t have to come at the cost of aesthetics, because there are numerous designs and models on the market, offering you a solution for any style, from classic to modern, from minimalist to eclectic.

This wide choice means you can find the perfect backlit mirror to add functionality and personality to your bathroom.

This elegant, minimalist mirror features a subtle frame of LED lighting that emits the perfect light for enhancing the reflection of the user. It also delivers in terms of sustainability, as its surface includes 30% recycled glass, while the paint is non-toxic.

Natural stone is the star of the Anima backlit mirror. Designed by Yabu Pushelberg, it is an expression of harmony and elegance, where artistic sensitivity combines with eco-friendly materials to reveal the essence of stone. A symbol of the serenity and the spiritual haven a bathroom represents, the Anima mirror is much more than a beautiful designer accessory. It respects an ethos, with fluid shapes that freely interpret natural geometry.
It is available in a range of marbles and limestones, including Bianco Carrara and Crema d’Orcia.
