Indulgent Reflections – Kitchen and Bath Design News
While bath accessories are often touted for the organization or comfort they provide, products such as medicine cabinets and mirrors can be statement-making pieces while they provide a needed function. Lighting is a key component of today’s mirrored fixtures, and many deliver different colors and temperatures to add brightness or a softer atmosphere, depending upon what is desired.
Some of the trends in bath mirrors and medicine cabinets include:
–Specialty lighting within mirrors that adjusts according to need and personal preference, including for makeup application and grooming as well as to mimic daylight and indoor lighting.
–Refrigeration within medicine cabinets to help preserve expensive face creams or properly store medications.
–Electronic outlets inside cabinets that supply power for hairdryers and electric shavers, as well as charging stations for cell phones and tablets.
–Backlighting on mirrors and medicine cabinets with color settings for drama and night-light displays for middle-of-the-night visits.
–Medicine cabinets and mirrors with smart capabilities for connected function, complete with disappearing television screens and computer settings for music, weather and other reports.
–Mirrors in dramatic shapes that enhance the overall design or act as the focal point of the bath.
