This is evidenced by the fact that many mirrors, especially bathroom mirrors, are outfitted with large elaborate frames, accent lighting, intricate designs, and even technological features.
Today these are precisely the types of mirrors that are found in bathrooms, whether placed singly on a wall or fitted neatly over a bathroom vanity.
Bathroom mirrors are usually placed at a very strategic place in the bathroom, where the lighting is just right, and it can be easily used.
Some people prefer additional lighting, mainly where the bathroom mirror is being used for priming and applying makeup, and in today's wide selection of bathroom mirrors, many of them come fitted with this additional lighting.
The most common type of accent mirror lighting is the laminated frame; however recessed lights are also becoming very popular in mirror frames.
Accent bathroom mirror lighting can also be done separately, i.e., if the mirrors do not come with additional lighting. In such a case the bar light is a popular choice. These are made up of small glass bulbs that are attached to a bar which is then attached to the top of the mirrors. They are often seen in celebrity dressing rooms.
Because of changes in technology bathroom mirrors are also outfitted with de-fogging warmers that help to remove steam and fog that clouds bathrooms due to high humidity, water vapor and condensation in the air.
It is important to remember that although bathroom mirrors are functional, it is also one of those pieces in a bathroom that is highly noticeable so remember that a distinctive mirror has to go with the rest of your bathroom styling in order to make a perfect match that won't clash or throw your décor off its theme.
The mirrors itself won't be very versatile, but the frame and accessories that go with it usually are since they come in every imaginable color and style, for instance, they come in forms that are traditional, antique, rustic and even contemporary.
