Differences Between Frontlit Mirrors And Backlit Mirrors

Understanding the differences between frontlit and backlit LED bathroom mirrors is important when selecting the perfect mirror for your space. Let’s delve into the differences between these two types of mirrors.

1. Light Source Placement

Frontlit LED mirrors have the light source positioned in front of the mirror, usually integrated into the frame or around the mirror’s perimeter.

Backlit LED mirrors have the light source positioned behind the mirror, creating a soft and diffused illumination around the mirror’s edges.

2. Brightness and Clarity

Frontlit mirrors provide bright lighting, providing better clarity for daily activities such as beauty, makeup, and shaving.

Backlit mirrors do not provide direct lighting, but create soft light on the back of the mirror, creating a relaxing atmosphere. Compared to frontlit mirrors, they are not bright enough, but they can meet daily makeup needs.

3. Modern Aesthetics

Frontlit mirrors can be matched with an aluminum alloy frame, which increases the decorative and more beautiful appearance.

Backlit mirrors focus on bright mirror silhouettes and a relaxed atmosphere, rather than visible bulbs. The simple design of the mirror can be paired with any interior decoration style.
