The mirror has long been a staple atop vanities, and for hundreds of years it largely didn't change. Sure, it might have had a new shape or a different frame that was popular for a time, but there was no real structural change or advancement. Recently, vanity mirrors have undergone some major upgrades across almost every department, so now they can come jam-packed with features that make your life easier. If you are in the market for vanity mirrors because you have moved house or your old one broke, then here are three features you should consider when searching.
Everyone has been in a situation where they have just had a shower (or bath) and the steam from the hot water makes the mirror unusable. Maybe you have exhaust fans and have to wait for them to clear the foggy mess, but otherwise there seems to be no quick solution to getting rid of the problem. Enter the demister. A demister is installed behind the back of your mirror and can get clear the steamed-up surface in a minute or two at the most. If you are in a rush in the morning and don't have any time to spare, then a demister is the answer to your problems.
For a long time, the only way to have accurate lighting when at a mirror was to put a giant light directly over the top and have it blasting into your face as you tried to avoid being blinded when you prepared your skin care and beauty routine. Many vanity mirrors can now come with preinstalled lights that are softer, provide a more natural look and simply look better than the previous need for large lights placed awkwardly above you. It is becoming more and more of an industry standard to have lights preinstalled in vanity mirrors, so don't miss out!
Vanity Mirror Televisions
While still definitely at the higher end of the price spectrum, mirror televisions are starting to trickle their way down to the regular consumer. If you have always thought that mirror televisions were the ultimate luxury in a bathroom, then one could be in your reach. There are several options for a few thousand dollars, but they are often specially made when you order. If you are thinking about getting a mirror TV, make sure to consider it in your design from the beginning, as you will need a power supply, connection to the aerial and possibly WiFi all within range.
