If you’re tired of waking up to an uninspiring bathroom but you don’t want to make major changes to your decor and fixtures, new mirrors may be the answer. Mirrors can help brighten a room and make small bathrooms seem more spacious. Mirror cabinets can provide a place to store those all-important bathroom items without creating visual clutter or impinging on your space. Illuminated mirrors help accomplish close shaves, perfect trims and movie-star makeup.
One manufacturer with a range of mirrors for the bathroom and other parts of the home is Pebble Grey. They offer both illuminated and non-illuminated mirrors, bathroom cabinets and bathroom lighting in a variety of styles.
Traditionally, illuminated mirrors have used fluorescent lighting. Pebble Grey’s range includes the Panama, a long horizontal mirror lit by two continuous fluorescent tubes above and below; the Sienna, a vertical design with fluorescent lighting on either side; and the Azure, which has two fluorescent lights on each side of the mirror and a third light that arcs gracefully over the top. The Teramo and Medina mirrors have two lines of fluorescent lights on each side — three lights on each side in the case of the Teramo and four in the case of the Medina.
Another option is an LED illuminated mirror. Arrays of bright white LEDs can now produce as much light as fluorescent lighting but use even less energy and allow for slimmer designs. The horizontal Olympia and vertical Pisa mirrors have a stylish “square bracket” design picked out in super-bright LEDs, while the Solar has a frame of bright LEDs all the way around. For something really unusual, how about an infinity mirror? Using a cunning arrangement of LEDs, this style creates the illusion of depth.
Many of their cabinets come with double-sided doors so they are reflective inside and out, meaning that you don’t have to juggle items while opening or closing the cabinet to look in the mirror. Their range includes Laverne, a sleek frameless design, and Silvanus, a slimline three-door cabinet. They also offer a range of coordinating bathroom accessories to set off your bathroom’s new look.
