5 benefits of adding a full-length mirror to your bathroom

Full Length mirrors available for every room in the house

You might have long thought that a full-length mirror should be reserved strictly for your bedroom or living room. However, erecting this kind of mirror in your bathroom, of all places, can bring surprising benefits — including…

  1. A less ‘cramped’ feeling in the room

Your bathroom may be on the small side if you live alone or have simply had to settle for a relatively compact home due to budgetary restrictions.

The good news is that a large mirror placed in this room will reflect many parts of it, making it seem bigger than it actually is.

2. Better use of light

We have mentioned a full-length mirror’s ability to reflect many things at once — and those things include light. What light, exactly? Of course, you can see this as a reference to your bathroom’s overhead lighting, as well as sunlight streaming in through the window.

Keep in mind, though, that we offer full-length mirrors incorporating their own electric lights. So, adding such a mirror with light to your bathroom can make it feel even more spacious.

3. Added visual interest

The aesthetic appeal of your full-length mirror doesn’t just have to be down to the mirror’s intrinsic design, such as whether or not it comes with a frame. You can arrange for our team here at Illuminated Mirrors to provide you with a full-length mirror with dimmable and remote controlled RGB backlighting built in.

It will ultimately be up to you exactly what colours and patterns the lights show — especially as you can choose from presets and programs to create the look that you seek.

4. A complete, at-a-glance view of your body

You might get dressed in your bathroom if you live with other people. Having a full-length mirror nearby when you are slipping into your attire can enable you to quickly see how it looks on you.

The bathroom might also be the place where you keep the scales, since you can more accurately tell your body’s weight if you step on the scales with your clothes off.

Just before or after you weigh yourself, you would be able to see your figure in a full-length mirror. How is your physique? Are those gym sessions paying off? These are questions you can expect to answer more easily when a full-length mirror is there to help you out.

5. Crisp, clear music for you to enjoy in the morning

Yes, surprised though you might be to read this, a full-length mirror can even play music. The bespoke add-ons that we offer for full-length mirrors include our X-Audio feature, where you can wirelessly connect a smartphone or tablet to your mirror via Bluetooth.

Then, you can have high-fidelity music play from inducer speakers integrated with the mirror. Imagine how relaxing it would be to listen to this music as you soak or get dressed in the bathroom!

On your request, we can install a full-length mirror with light in your bathroom. To ask us any questions about our supply-and-installation services, please email [email protected] today.

Is the framed or frameless look better for an illuminated bathroom mirror?


An illuminated mirror can help give your bathroom a distinctive aesthetic and atmosphere. Whether you’re trying to give your bathroom a relaxing spa-like feel or looking to create a smart, clean style, illuminated mirrors can add considerable character to your bathroom.

With Illuminated Mirrors, we can create bespoke, made-to-measure mirrors, turning your dream mirror into a reality. 

When you’re designing your perfect illuminated mirror, you have the option of either a framed or frameless look. Both these options offer many possible benefits, so choosing the best option will largely come down to your personal preference.

To help you decide, here are a few of the benefits you can enjoy with both framed and frameless illuminated bathroom mirrors.

The benefits of framed illuminated mirrors

One of the main benefits of a framed illuminated mirror is the many decoration possibilities it provides.

Mirror frames can be made from a variety of materials, each offering a distinct visual style. This enables you to choose the best option for the kind of look and atmosphere you’re attempting to create.

Another advantage of framed mirrors is the protection they can offer. A robust frame can help make the edges and corners of mirrors less prone to breakage.

With a frame, the edges of a mirror may also be less susceptible to moisture. The presence of a frame on a mirror, then, could help prevent oxidation or de-silvering, which typically starts from a mirror’s edge and spreads slowly.

The benefits of frameless illuminated mirrors

While framed mirrors might offer more opportunities for decoration, they can also take up a lot of space. A large, framed mirror may therefore be difficult to fit into a relatively small bathroom.

A frameless mirror, on the other hand, is often a good option for those who are on the lookout for a stylish mirror that won’t take up too much space.

Frameless mirrors are often more lightweight than their framed counterparts. Furthermore, without a frame, they can be easier to install and clean. While frames can often accumulate dust, frameless mirrors don’t typically need to be cleaned so frequently.

Another benefit of a frameless mirror is that it may be able to show off more of your bathroom than a framed mirror. A frameless mirror shows off more reflective space, making it a perfect option if you have a small bathroom that you want to make look bigger.

Finally, with fewer components, a frameless mirror can be the better option for those who are looking for a relatively minimalistic design.

Conclusion: your ideal framed or frameless mirror could soon be a reality

Overall, there are many benefits that can make both framed and frameless illuminated mirrors an attractive option for any bathroom. Ultimately, you will need to determine what your own priorities are when it comes to made-to-measure mirrors, and what implications this might have for whether you choose a framed or frameless mirror.

Framed mirrors come in a variety of materials, which should make it easy to find one that suits the visual style of your bathroom. These mirrors can also be more robust, with the frame protecting the mirror from potential breakage.

Frameless mirrors, on the other hand, can be an excellent option for smaller bathrooms and those who prefer more of a sleek, minimalist aesthetic.

Whether you favour the framed or frameless look in a mirror, Illuminated Mirrors offers bespoke, made-to-measure mirrors, so you can be confident of finding the perfect mirror for your bathroom.

How to create a spa-like atmosphere in your home


Amid the hustle and bustle of modern life, it is important that we all take the time to relax and unwind.

One of the best ways to do this is by visiting a spa. However, if you find making time for this challenging, there are ways to create a spa-like atmosphere in your own home without breaking the bank.

From spa pools to our own Hollywood mirrors here at Illuminated Mirrors, here are some of the ways you can recreate the spa experience in your own home.

Aura lighting system

Invest in scented candles and diffusers

The use of scented candles is an easy way to give your home a spa-like atmosphere. Even the smallest candle can help replicate much of the calming atmosphere found in spas. Furthermore, these candles can be easily bought both online and in stores in a variety of different relaxing scents.

Another option is a diffuser. This device diffuses essential oils and spreads their scent throughout the home. Essential oils have a range of health benefits, including helping to relieve stress and headaches. A high-quality diffuser can be a great way to bring the spa experience to your home every day.

Buy a spa pool

Spa pools come in many different shapes, sizes, and designs. Such a pool would offer an excellent way for you to experience the relaxation of a spa without having to leave the house.

Spa pools may once have been prohibitively expensive for many people, but nowadays, it is easier to find the perfect spa pool for one’s house at an affordable price. Whether you introduce an indoor or outdoor spa pool to your home, it will almost certainly help make you feel more relaxed on a day-to-day basis.

If you don’t wish to install a spa pool, you can still enjoy a relaxing bath by adding a few cups of Epsom salt.

Add some ambient colour with our Aura Spa Mode lighting

Lighting can play a big role in creating a relaxing atmosphere, as demonstrated by our own Aura Spa Mode Hollywood mirrors.

These mirrors offer a full spectrum of ambient colour backlighting, with no fewer than five settings that you can take advantage of, depending on your mood at the time. You might set your mirror to show one of 16 static colours, for example, or you could put it on the Fade setting, which gradually fades through each colour in the spectrum.

With the press of a button, you can create an instant spa-like atmosphere in your home.

Play spa-like music

One of the most immediately recognisable elements of a spa is the relaxing music playing in the background. Such zen music can help put your mind at ease and eliminate any unwanted noises during your experience.

You can easily recreate this at home by finding relaxing music or the white noise of nature on a music app and plugging it into a Bluetooth speaker. Indeed, you can specify an illuminated bathroom mirror from us that incorporates such Bluetooth capability.

Whether you’re relaxing in a spa pool or performing your own spa treatments, adding spa-like music is a simple touch that can significantly enhance the relaxing atmosphere.

Conclusion: a spa-like atmosphere in your home can be within reach!

Creating a spa-like feel in your home isn’t as difficult or as expensive a process as you might imagine it to be. Indeed, our own feature-packed illuminated mirrors can play their own role in making it a reality for you.
