'Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the fairest of them all?'
Surprisingly, many of us overlook the impact a finishing touch can have on a room, yet The Bathroom Shop recognises that it's the finer details which can give that all important WOW factor. Arguably one of the most reliant features in the bathroom, a mirror or mirrored cabinet is a must-have consideration in the early stages of design and one that should never be neglected.
With bathroom interiors continuing to develop in terms of design and style, the market has moved away from the more typical mirror with few or even no features. Instead, advancements have come to the fore and welcomed a rise in digital communication which continues to mature across both home and lifestyle.
Bathroom accessories such as the once humble mirror are now allowing wireless communication via smart devices, access to music, LED or fluorescent illumination, heated demister functions and even dedicated power outlets for the essential razor or electric toothbrush. Truly a multi-media addition to any bathroom, the mirror is now recognised as a 'hero product' with The Bathroom Shop offering designs from leading brands such as Roper Rhodes and Dansani to name a couple...
The Bathroom Shop understands that new and exciting accessories with highly practical and self-indulgent features are what personalise a bathroom space and when extra-sensory appeal is a must, it suggests that the Audio-Image Mirror by Roper Rhodes is a good accessory to choose since it comes with a portable media device incorporating DAB and FM radio reception. The pictured Audio-Image Bathroom Mirror by Roper Rhodes is available from The Bathroom Shop and features:
- Inputs for SD card, USB and portable media devices
- Illuminated touch sensitive controls
- Heated demister pad
- IP44 water resistance rated
- Heated 5mm mirror glass
- 60 high efficiency and long life LED lamps
If space is limited, then a mirrored cabinet might be the more practical option. The Calidris Mirror Cabinet, irrespective of size, is roomy and consistent in its design and function. The double mirrored doors, attractive mirror back plates, stable glass shelves and shaver point are some of the great functions that hide inside and for the height of style, there is a choice of a light oak, dark oak or high-gloss finish, in three sizes - 800mm, 1000mm and 1200mm widths.
