Adding elegance to your bathroom with a Bauhaus Essence Backlit Oval Mirror

Mirrors in a bathroom perform a number of functions, essentially they allow a person to shave, put on makeup, comb or brush ones hair. However they also can create an illusion of space and this is particularly beneficial in a smaller bathroom, en-suite, or cloakroom area.

The modern bathroom mirror today can also give the room a subtle creative ambience with the lighting. This is particularly so with the Bauhaus Essence backlit mirror which features LED lighting and this type of lighting creates fabulously low energy consumption. With this back lighting the reflective crystal clear quality of this mirror also creates the illusion of space, even in the smallest of areas.

Choosing this mirror will give complete functionality, as well as appearance, available in two sizes of 500mm by 800mm or 400mm by 800mm. The mirror can be hung in either portrait or landscape and your bathroom will have a cool, ambient wash of light.

Be creative in your bathroom

Even though the bathroom may be one of the places that we may overlook when house improving it is most certainly one which we spend quite a lot of time in. When asked in surveys, people will say that a bathroom is the one room which can add the most value to a house and also the one that can make or break a house sale.

The bathroom is also a place where you can become a bit more creative with things like decor and it is well worth spending time and investing in a room which is not only functional, but a place for relaxation.

Now we know that most home owners, certainly over two thirds are DIY enthusiasts and love to improve their homes, more so now when moving is not the simple option it may once have been. So what are the things that a home improver can tackle without the need to call in a building contractor?

Firstly we wish to emphasise that anything that requires an electrical connection must be undertaken by a certified electrician. Plumbing work also may mean that you will have to call in a specialist, but doing something simple such as changing existing taps can be straightforward, even fitting a new wash basin can be achieved as long as the pipework does not need extensive re-routing.

However, if you are looking to give your bathroom a new look, repainting is sure to give it a fresh new appearance. Adding a mirror can also improve the way that a bathroom looks and by fitting two mirrors on opposite walls can give an impression of space, the hotel trick! Two HIB Lucy mirrors mounted vertically would be ideal for this.

For a small outlay you will soon have a new delightful new place to relax and of course admire.

Those all important last details in bathroom design

Bathroom accessories are often overlooked when people are making the last but important details when completing a new bathroom or en-suite, but it is these that can pull together what is already a good bathroom, giving it a classy look. Think what would happen without soap dishes, you don’t want a sticky mess on the side of the basin or bath. A towel rail is a must and in today’s modern bathroom a heated one is a priority for many. You would not want the toilet roll sitting on top of the cistern, not when you can get one that looks good and is fully functional too.

It is these little details that can make your bathroom a pleasure to use or a nightmare in the making. If you’ve ever wondered where to store your bathrobe while you are taking a shower, longed for a magnified or illuminated mirror to apply your makeup, or thought there must be an alternative to balancing your toothbrush in a mug on the windowsill then modern bathroom accessories are the way forward.
