LED lighted mirrors have proved to be the combination of futuristic technology and classic beauty. They not only offer traditional reflection but at the same time enhance the mood of the space with their illuminating glow. LED mirrors are installed in bathrooms, dressing rooms, and even living rooms, making interior design more convenient and stylish fun than ever. These mirrors will change the way we see our living environments. These are mirrors with led lights models and key factors to contemplate before purchasing.

Keonjinn IP54 Waterproof CRI90+ Dimmable Mirror is the best rated mirror with LED lights. It has a light strip that is acrylic wrapped on it, which makes it look modern and chic. It also features ETL-listed LED driver and an IP54 waterproof rating, ensuring worry-free application in covered bathrooms.

In the second position among our choices there is the Amorho LED Bathroom Vanity Mirror with Front and Backlight. This mirror has dual LED strip lights that offer side lighting from the front side and back side. But, it is rather limited to three colors only.

The third on the list of the mirror with LED Lights we reviewed is the Keonjinn Bathroom Mirror with LED Lights. This unit is equipped with a memory function that saves your last brightness settings whether the power goes out or not. However this mirror is totally dependent on electricity for the power.

One of the first things that caught my attention about Keonjinn's IP54 Waterproof CRI90+ dimmable makeup mirror was its acrylic light strip. Instead of the usual exposed light strips, this mirror makes use of an acrylic-wrapped light strip that complements its modern and classic appearance. Moreover, such design raises the mirror's aesthetics and at the same time makes it waterproof and highly safe. The Cool White LED backlighting with high-density 120 LEDs/m provides 6000K of light brightness, which ensures all my bathroom lighting requirements.

Thanks to the step-less dimmable function that allows the brightness from 10% to 100%, I can find the exact lighting needed. Moreover, the LED mirror has a memory function, which means I do not have to readjust it again when I use it. On the contrary, having a choice between either plugging it into an ordinary switch or hardwiring the mirror offers flexibility and energy-saving advantages. In addition, the bathroom mirror is equipped with the fast and safe defogging, and anti-fog functions.

The use of a new 3. With no copper mirror, this model beats out other ones on the market. In contrast to a tempered glass mirror, it provides a true, clear, undistorted picture of oneself.

Factors to Consider When Buying the Best Mirrors With LED Lights

1. Size and Shape

While shopping for LED-lit mirrors, be mindful of the size and shape, they are the ones that determine how well the mirror fits in your bathroom. First, evaluate the area on which you want to hang the LEDD mirror considering the right sizes. Take note of the fact that a bigger mirror will appear like a small bathroom is wider, but the smaller mirror will be more suitable for a small space.

Take into account the mirror's size to match your eco-friendly bathroom theme. Usually LED mirrors are coming in different shapes like round, oval or rectangular. Hence, pick a shape that helps to accentuate and harmonize the design of your bathroom.

2. Waterproof And IP Rating

In the case of bathroom mirrors, waterproof design is of great importance. LED-lit mirrors must be waterproof to safeguard the electronic elements and be used safely in a moist environment. The IP (ingress protection) rating is something to check, as it normally shows how well it is protected against water and dust. Higher IP ratings such as P44 and IP65 convey greater waterproofing and durability.

3. Color And Intensity Of Light

The colors and intensity of the LED lights are significant in the work of bathroom mirrors. For example, many people prefer white light because it is often correct and natural to shave and put on makeup. We advise purchasing a bathroom mirror with LED lights which can alter their color temperatures.

On top of that, think about the brightness of the bathroom vanity mirrors. With adjustable LED mirrors, you can adjust the light intensity for different activities, hence enhancing visibility. It is important to select mirrors with LED lights that will give you an appropriate light color and brightness to create a good environment in the bathroom.

4. Anti-Fog And Dimmer

The anti-fog component on the bathroom mirrors can add an extra function. In most cases this approach includes a heated pad right under the mirror which prevents condensation providing a clean reflection even after a hot shower. In spite of that, the anti-fog mirrors are the good choice as they save time and effort by offering a clear mirror surface.

On the contrary, a dimmer feature gives you the ability to adjust the brightness of the LED lights to meet your taste. It is particularly useful for example in the case of makeup application.

5. Power Source and Energy Efficiency

The quality of mirrors with LED lights depends on the power source (power source affects efficiency and installation). In most instances, LED mirrors use a direct electric power cord for a seamless and energy-saving operation. On the other hand, some LED mirrors are battery powered, which although necessitates frequent battery replacement, is more convenient to install.

Search for units that come with energy saving features like long-life LED bulbs and switch-off timers that turn off automatically. These features may help make a bathroom that does not use as much energy, and is more environmentally friendly.

6. Installation

It is necessary to evaluate the installation process while you search for the best mirrors with LED lights. The process of mounting brackets simplifies the installation of certain types of mirrors, yet the hardwired connection can be done only with professional help.

Make sure the LED mirror include an instruction guide and all the required mounting accessories. Further, ascertain if the LED mirror can be mounted vertically or horizontally as this would determine the aesthetics and performance of the mirror in your bathroom.
