It’s important to know how to pick a mirror with lights. Don’t focus on size or shape only. You must also pay attention to details such as the way the accent lighting interacts with the mirror itself but also with the surrounding décor. Always remember that having a bathroom mirror with accent lights placed directly above it is the worst kind of combination. The light has to flatter you, not create unpleasant shadows.
