Cosmetic mirror guide: A practical guide to buying a cosmetic mirror
Why a cosmetic mirror?
A high-quality cosmetic mirror is a versatile bathroom accessory that should not be missing in any bathroom. A cosmetic mirror is a worthwhile investment:
- Detailed display for precise cosmetic and care applications : With a cosmetic mirror you can see fine details more clearly and carry out precise make-up applications, thereby improving your skin care.
- Better viewing comfort when applying makeup or shaving : A makeup mirror allows for a magnified and well-lit view so you don't miss any small details while applying makeup or shaving.
- A design element that contributes to the overall look of the bathroom : A high-quality vanity mirror is also an aesthetic element that enhances the overall look of the bathroom.
What types of cosmetic mirrors are there?
There are different types of cosmetic mirrors that can meet different needs and preferences:

What magnifications are there?
Magnifying a cosmetic mirror plays an important role in seeing small details more clearly. Here are some common magnifications and their uses:
- 3x Magnification : This is ideal for everyday beauty care and makeup applications such as applying makeup, make-up and shaving.
- 5x Magnification : 5x magnification provides a high level of detail for precise makeup and skin care applications such as makeup application and shaving, eyebrow plucking, facial hair removal and cosmetic treatments
- 7x magnification : A cosmetic mirror with 7x magnification provides an even more detailed view and is particularly suitable for specialized beauty applications such as makeup application and shaving, eyebrow plucking, facial hair removal, cosmetic treatments and skin blemish removal.
It is important to note that large magnifications of 7-10x are often preferred online, while the 5x mirror is often sold in our physical stores. This is because the fallacy of "the more the better" is assumed, which is not true for high-quality mirrors such as those from Decor Walther and Windisch . The magnification is completely sufficient for any application. The disadvantage of magnifications that are too large is that you have to get very close to the mirror and part of the face is often "cut off".
Illuminated or unlit cosmetic mirror?
Another important feature of cosmetic mirrors is lighting.
Illuminated cosmetic mirror: An illuminated cosmetic mirror offers the advantage of optimal lighting, which makes applying make-up, shaving or grooming easier. The integrated lighting ensures even and bright illumination of the face, making the smallest details easier to see. This is particularly beneficial in rooms with insufficient natural light or when getting ready in the early morning or late evening hours.
Battery or power connection? A battery-operated cosmetic mirror offers independence and mobility, while a powered mirror ensures constant and reliable luminosity. A battery-operated cosmetic mirror lasts several weeks once charged, depending on how frequently it is used.
- Before deciding on an illuminated cosmetic mirror with a fixed power connection, there are a few key aspects to consider. First of all, it is important to ensure that there is a suitable power outlet near the mirror. To ensure a safe and proper installation, it is recommended that you hire an electrician. This ensures professional implementation.
- If you are renting an apartment, it is particularly important to get your landlord's permission before making any changes to the electrical system or bathroom fixtures. Some landlords may have specific policies or restrictions regarding such installations.
Why choose a high-quality mirror?
There are good reasons to invest in a high-quality cosmetic mirror:
High-quality materials : High-quality mirrors offer a long service life and, should something break, there is a constant supply of replacement parts. They give the bathroom a luxurious feel and a high-quality look.
