6 Benefits of Backlit Mirrors

Posted on August 27, 2015 in General Information

At Aamsco Lighting, we proudly sell an array of lighting fixtures for your home or business that are not only highly functional, but are also beautiful and well-crafted. When it comes to mirrors, we offer a variety of backlit mirrors to complement any decor and give you a clean, tastefully lit area. Here are a few benefits of our backlit mirrors:

1) No Shadows

When it comes to regular lighting fixtures in your bathroom, they can often create shadows on your face and make it difficult to to see yourself fully illuminated. When parts of your face aren’t entirely visible, it can make shaving or applying makeup more difficult. A backlit mirror, however, provides full illumination and highlights your entire face with clear, even light.

Many backlit mirrors are designed with a modern touch, and are therefore much thinner than other styles of mirrors. Today’s bathrooms are getting more and more compact in size, and this thinness can allow for more space. It can also allow you to decide on a larger mirror, which can not only be helpful for shared bathrooms, but also to create an illusion of a larger room.

3) Energy Savings

Many bathroom lighting fixtures feature incandescent light bulbs, which use a lot of electricity and have a lifespan of around 1,200 hours. Backlit mirrors, however, use LED lighting, which  use much less electricity and last around 40,000 hours. This means you’ll save a significant amount of money on your electric bill and you’ll also reduce your carbon footprint.

4) Quality Lighting

The LED lighting used in backlit mirrors are available with warm or cool color temperatures to complement your complexion, but it’s also high quality to give you a pure, flawless, and widespread glow. This lets you complete any task knowing that your face and/or body will be fully lighted.

5) Style

If you’re looking to add some style to your bathroom, a backlit mirror can be an easy way to do so. At Aamsco, we carry a variety of mirrors, and each of them can be used as a focal point in your decor. They can add a touch of elegance, sophistication, modernity, boldness, or minimalism, depending on your taste.

6) Extra Features

Many backlit mirrors are available with optional features such as motion and/or proximity sensors as well as an anti-fog feature, which means you won’t have to worry about wiping down your mirror after a shower.
