Mirrors, whether chosen simply for their decorative aspect or also functional art, are becoming more appealing with designers, home owners and those in the hospitality industry alike.
Mirrors with built-in lighting are popular for the bathroom and vanity areas of the home. They decrease clutter and keep the area streamlined as well as eliminate the oftentimes dated look of “Hollywood” vanity lights that we’re all used to seeing. Their even, diffused light is also more flattering to use as task lighting for makeup application and shaving.
Lighted mirrors are wall or floor-mounted by their back plate and mounting brackets. They are hard-wired to standard electrical junction boxes. These mirrors are available in CFL (fluorescent) light sources and some have LED options.

Mirror Hanging Tips
• In a south-facing room, make the most of afternoon light by placing the mirror on the wall opposite the window. If you wish to absorb morning light, try the adjacent window.
• Hanging a mirror in your entry hall will make your space appear larger and brighter
• Long rooms are more flattering with a horizontal mirror and rooms with vaulted ceilings benefit from vertical mirrors.
• Hang a mirror high on the wall at a downward tilt so that more of the room is reflected.
• If you hang a mirror above your mantel, position it at least 4 to 5 inches above the top to avoid casting dark shadows on your décor.
• Be sure you are using drill bits specific to glass or tile before hanging on these types of surfaces to avoid damaging your new mirror. • If you are hanging a mirror on the door, choose the largest mirror possible that will take up most of your door’s space.
