A Short Guide to Bathroom LED Mirrors: The Renovation Continues

Posted on Jul 4 2016 - 1:33pm by Ronnie

The bathroom renovation continues! It’s been a slow process, but we want to create the most stunning, comfortable and luxurious bathroom we can for the most affordable budget possible.

If you recall, we have been doing some heavy DIY remodeling of my dad’s apartment. It was left in the same state as it was purchased in the 1940’s and needed some massive work. But being that we’re both very handy, we wanted to do the renovation ourselves.

We started with the 2 most important rooms in the apartment (at least to us): the kitchen & the bathroom. We already decided on a walk-in shower as it’s safer for my parents. Now, comes the fun part for me: the mirror!

We decided to splurge on a great mirror that will add a touch of refinement to the bathroom and be the best possible source of light for applying makeup: an LED mirror!

And my research is now your benefit: here’s a short guide through the elegant world of LED mirrors.
