Bathroom Vanity Buying Guide – 4

If you have seen our last 3 blogs, you may have known how to pick a nice bathroom vanity. Let’s assume that you had purchased one, after assembly, you realized that you should have bought other items, such as a mirror.


Here comes question: How can I purchase a nice mirror? Don’t worry, that’s what we do for living, to help you get it through and give you a suggested direction to guide you, which is exactly what buying guide does.


About Mirrors

You can’t use the bathroom without a mirror. Especially for ladies, how could they do their making up without a mirror? But if you want to purchase a good one, you should pay attention to the following tips.



Aluminum Mirror

This is the most commonly used material for mirrors. It’s cheap, but neither does it have a clear reflection nor long useful life. If you wanna make aluminum mirrors as the same clear and bright as the silver mirrors, it will cost so much, which is not worthwhile.


Silver Mirror

This kind of mirrors is more costly than aluminum mirrors. But silver mirrors can clearly reflect the lights. Under the same light condition, silver mirrors look brighter than aluminum mirrors. As for the craft, silver mirrors are usually painted twice. Besides, silver won’t easily cause chemical reaction with water, beautiful and durable.



Mirror has a great plasticity, which can be molded into all kinds of shapes. Base on your preference and the design of your bathroom, you can choose any shape you want.


Rectangle Mirror


Round Mirror



Oval Mirror


LED Mirror

For those who want to have better visual experience while using the mirror, I gotta point out that the light matters a lot. Many mirrors are equipped with LED light belt around the frame, soft and comfortable. LED itself is not power-consuming or expensive, so personally speaking, LED is totally acceptable.



Anti-Foggy Function

The most annoying thing is, while using warm water in the bathroom, our mirror is always covered with water vapour. Then it will be inconvenient for men to do shaving or for ladies doing making ups or skin care. To achieve anti-foggy function, there are 2 major ways.

 1. To Coat the Mirror with Special Chemical Material

This kind of mirror can resist fog, but the effect depends on the quality of the chemical material. Only when the quality of the chemical material is good enough will the mirrors get nice effect of fog resistance, otherwise the anti-fog function won’t last for long, which will be weakened by water and wiping.


 2. To Equip a Heating Item

This is most efficient physical way of fog resistance. All you need is a tiny heating item behind the mirror, then the fog issue will be long gone.



Now we just finished learnt about mirrors. If you ask me what price may be reasonable, well, generally speaking, a mirror with LED light and Anti-fog function, will cost about  $150, but of course the size can make differences.
