Bathroom mirrors are an indispensable accessory in the bathroom, but because the bathroom is highly humid, the choice of bathroom mirrors has different standards and requirements from other mirrors. Today, I will give you a brief introduction to the precautions for the purchase and installation of bathroom mirrors.
Choose from style and appearance
First of all, from the perspective of style, there are generally two types of mirrors, round and square. Different shapes of mirrors should be selected according to different styles. For example, round mirrors tend to be European and American styles, while square mirrors tend to be Chinese. When purchasing, you should observe the mirror from multiple angles from the front, side, and back. Generally, when you look at the mirror, you only pay attention to the direct image of yourself in the mirror, instead of paying special attention to the straight objects in the mirror. Move your line of sight slightly, if the straight object is not bent or deformed, this is a good quality mirror.
Waterproof, anti-rust and anti-fog functions, one can not be less
Ordinary mirrors will become dim if they are placed in a relatively humid place for a long time, and may even rust and fall off. So we need to pay attention to the waterproof and rust-proof ability of the mirror. You can usually watch the portrait in the mirror at close range. You can move your sight up and down or left and right to see if the object is bent or deformed. In addition, there will be a lot of mist in the bathroom after the shower, causing the mirror surface to become blurred. Custom-made anti-fog film is generally used in the market, which is a translucent polyester film that can generate heat after power on. Put it on the back of the bath mirror before use, as flat as possible for easy use.
Storage function is the key
Bathrooms are generally small in space, so while considering the beauty, you also need to consider its storage function. According to the experience of people who have renovated, a mirror with a little storage function can make up for the lack of bathroom space.
In addition, observe and touch the product by hand. Check whether the appearance of the product is deformed or discolored, whether the straight rod is straight, whether the table surface is flat, whether the color is bright, whether the electroplating surface and paint surface of the product have defects and blisters, and whether the welding place is smooth and firm.
Installation is also a university question, 160-165cm above the ground is most suitable
When hanging the mirror, pay attention to the height. Generally, it is better to keep the middle of the mirror 160-165cm above the ground. The mirror in the bathroom can be framed. If it is not framed, it needs to be sealed and waterproof. When installing the mirror front lamp, pay attention to prevent glare. It is recommended to install a lampshade or choose a lamp with a frosted glass surface. In addition to the ordinary mirror, a stretchable magnifying glass is installed above the washbasin.
