Diy Vanity Mirror With Lights – Hairdressing, shaving, waxing, washing, brushing your teeth – for a lot of things, you need good lighting in the bathroom. Our lamps are placed around the mirror, to make the light where it is most needed, but also to the walls and ceiling, to create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation. In front of the mirror, use a powerful light to illuminate the face. For global lighting, simply prefer a more discreet ceiling light or recessed spotlights for your daily tasks. And for mood lighting: give free rein to your imagination to create a relaxing atmosphere. Directly fixed on the bathroom mirror , these spots perfectly fulfill their primary mission: to diffuse a sufficiently powerful and targeted light above the sink. LED backlit mirror and a sensor switch powerful enough to shave or apply makeup but soft enough to follow the contours of the face.
You can certainly choose the style of mirror (round, square, drawer …) but you must also think about the type of light you want, the color rendering (CRI) or the heat of the light (soft, cold …). To choose your bulbs , select the type of light already: cold white, warm white, blue, red, green or multicolor depending on the desired mood. Know that for a zen and relaxing atmosphere , it is better to choose a warm white color (2800 to 3200 Kelvin) and for a clear and natural atmosphere, favor a neutral white (between 3500 and 4000 Kelvin). Between 5600 and 6500 Kelvin, we are on a rather cold white tint. We recommend mixing two types of light in your bathroom: natural functional lighting with bulbs for your mirror and warmer halogen lighting, for example! This creates a pleasant atmosphere in your bathroom.
As we are in a bathroom, there are obviously regulations to respect for lighting around a bathroom cabinet. First of all, it is important to take into account the volume of the room, because depending on the room, some electrical appliances are not allowed. Take into account the ceiling height and the surface to determine the lighting system to install. We avoid halogens whose light a little yellow is misleading and gives a tired look! Do not hesitate to call a professional if you have a doubt to install an electrical system respecting the standards.
