Have you thought about installing a shower mirror? It’s a simple step that can give you an upgraded look in the bathroom. Why not try adding a mirror when you update your faucets, get a new paint job, or replace the hardware? These small things make a difference and are often overlooked by homeowners. Mirrors can really make a big difference in the appearance of any room.
There are several reasons to consider installing a fogless mirror in your bathroom. In addition to being easy to clean, they are also energy efficient. You can install them in either your shower or tub area, and thus you will be able to view your face clear while you’re shaving. No more missing pieces or cut corners. With the assistance of one of today’s range of high-tech water-repellant technologies, fog-free shower mirrors will prevent unnecessary condensation, keeping you able to view the full picture of your reflection as the steam clears. And because they are clear, there’s no mistaking that you’ve taken off your makeup.
But that’s not all that you’ll get out of fogless mirrors. In fact, installing one in a well-ventilated bathroom is just one of many ways to get maximum benefits. Mirrors are extremely durable and a durable mirror can definitely hold up over time. Some models can even be passed down from generation to generation. That’s why it’s worth considering adding a mirror to your shower wall if you have the opportunity.
With fog-free mirrors on your shower wall, it won’t be difficult for you to get a close shave. If you want to go the traditional route and have a glass encasing the mirror, you should still be able to get a good view of yourself. But having a fog-free mirror with a built-in electrical fan to push hot steam through the glass will ensure that your facial hair remains well trimmed and that you don’t miss any spots. After shaving, the warmth from the shower will open your pores and make shaving a breeze. That is unless you have nicks or cuts to deal with.
Shower shaving mirrors come in two basic types: chemically coated and non-chemically coated. The difference lies in how the glass is treated. Most showerheads these days will have either a non-chemical or a chemical coating to provide a more effective and safer way to clean up your face after shaving. However, some people prefer the non-chemically coated variety. Why is that?
Well, a fog-free mirror is much better for safety, especially for children and women who are prone to get cuts and abrasions around their delicate facial areas. With a fog-free mirror, you won’t have to worry about splinters or cuts on sensitive facial areas. Without a fog-free mirror, it can be very easy to accidentally hit sensitive skin. And that’s exactly what happened to me! I hit my chin on the shower sink and had to touch up with plaster to smooth out a nasty scratch.
Both types of mirrors require only simple cleaning methods to keep them looking great. Simply take them out of the box, wash them in warm water with gentle soap, and then use a tissue to wipe away any soap residue so the mirror looks clear. To keep the fog-free mirror in its clean condition, regularly schedule mirror cleanses by using hot soapy water and wiping the entire area with a soft towel and then a clean dry towel. You should also schedule routine spot cleaning in the same manner.
The great thing about modern-day mirrors is that there are now LED lighting versions available. These LED lighting mirrors are great for bathrooms that are small or have limited floor space because they will stand up to even the most demanding bathroom design. If you have decided to install a fog-free mirror and would like to add some more style to your bathroom, then consider adding some LED lighting to your existing mirrored bathroom mirror.
