Top tips for bathroom mirrors…
- Ideally a bathroom vanity mirror should be positioned so that you can have a well-lit reflection, with lighting that works for make-up and general beautifying, but doesn’t overpower the room.
- Allow for separate switches and circuits for general and overhead lighting, mood lighting and task lighting
- Reflecting light around the room, a mirror will make the space feel lighter and bigger, which is a big advantage for smaller bathrooms
