Re: Re: Bathroom mirror recommendations



Thanks Noel.

I do like the idea of the mirror being inset into the tiling. The house
already knows when the bathroom is occupied (PIR, flow switch on shower
etc.) so controlling when to power the demister pad shouldn't be a problem.

What did you do about illumination? We have downlighters in the ceiling
but I am concerned that without some specific lighting around the mirror
there will be too much shaddowing.

Thanks,

John
