Lighted mirrors elevate and modernize popular design styles such as farmhouse, industrial, and traditional mid-century modern. They are also the ideal solution for bathrooms with poor natural lighting.
Backlit and lighted mirrors offer three primary types of lighting – task lighting, ambient lighting, and accent lighting. They can illuminate the front of a face for shaving or makeup application, increase usable lighting in tiny bathrooms, and set the mood with subtle backlighting.
Designed to be fitted directly behind your LED bathroom mirrors demister pads are a simple and safe solution for steamed up mirrors. When switched on the thin wires built into the pad heat up causing any moisture to evaporate. This eliminates fogging and condensation in bathrooms, shower rooms and en suites, whilst also providing the added benefit of an energy efficient system.
The 240V demister heaters are easily installed by your electrician, simply peel back the paper and adhere the self-adhesive pad to the back of your mirror. The pad can then be connected to either your lighting circuit or a separate switch.
Metallic demisters use a high efficiency mesh with interlocking asymmetrical loops of metal or plastic to ensure even flow and a large free volume with low pressure drop. They are available in a range of alloys, densities and geometries to match your vessel specification.
Light Switch Integration
Showroom mirror with lights can be used in a variety of ways depending on their size, design and features. They can be installed in a bathroom to improve facial lighting or be placed in a dressing area for added functionality.
The LED light strips in these mirrors are carefully integrated into the frame or behind the surface, ensuring optimal lighting while minimizing glare. LED lights also consume less energy compared to traditional bulbs and provide various lighting options that can be adjusted according to one’s needs and preferences.
These lighted mirrors are typically hardwired into your home’s electrical system, making them suitable for permanent installations in bathrooms and dressing areas. However, they can also be connected to an external power supply for increased flexibility. Regardless of the method they are powered by, these LED mirror can be operated manually or with Smart home devices such as Alexa and Google Assistant. It is important to note that these lighted mirrors must be properly ventilated in order to avoid overheating and prolong their lifespan.
External Power Supply
Power cords attached to LED mirrors connect the product to electrical outlets, allowing the user to switch between multiple settings. Some models also allow for hardwiring, enabling the product to be connected directly to an electrical circuit without the use of an outlet. Installation requires a licensed and registered tradesman and careful attention to manufacturer instructions to ensure safety and optimal performance.
Vanity mirrors with lights typically require electricity to function, and they need additional power to activate other features like the defogger and front/backlight settings. Regardless of the type of light used in these products, it is important to look for energy-efficient bulbs to reduce electric bills and reduce environmental impact.
Additionally, you can find a variety of lighted mirrors that operate via battery-power. While these may not offer the same convenience as plug-in options, they are ideal for locations where outlets are difficult to access and for people who prefer cord-free designs. Some of these models come with replaceable or rechargeable batteries to help you save on replacement costs and avoid the hassle of finding an outlet every time.
Touch Sensor Glass
As the name suggests these touch sensors are incorporated within the glass itself. They use a transparent substrate which is coated with an insulator and then indium tin oxide (ITO) is deposited in a pattern creating electrodes running at right angles to the original glass.
As soon as a finger touches the surface, it disturbs the electric field created between the two pins of the sensor and signals the processor to change a function. The process is similar to how a capacitive touchscreen works and the result is a mirror that can be used as an interactive display or touch enabled for simple controls such as dimming.
The flat high-tech glass with precisely ground edges is tempered to BSI/ISO 12150 standards and can be easily installed into any space. The user interface consists of up to seven easily interchangeable icons that are either dimmable or color-assigned depending on configuration and can be configured using an integrated touchscreen.
