LUNA MIRRORS

If you haven’t seen the Luna mirrors from Fleurco yet, you’re missing out!

Fleurco has been in the industry for 50 years, designing and manufacturing innovative freestanding bathtubs, shower bases, shower doors, and lighted mirrors. In the past months, we have introduce the Halo lighted mirror, and the Sunrize lighted mirror from the Luna Mirror collection.

SUNRIZE MIRROR HALO MIRROR

These lighted mirrors use the latest LED technology which reduces energy consumption, and saves money. But there’s more to the Luna mirrors than LED technology, that make them so alluring:

1) The Brightness

The Halo Lighted mirror can reach a brightness of up to 1725 lumens, while the Sunrize mirror provides 630 lumens. The bright light allows for better visibility for daily tasks.

2) The Colour

Both the Halo and Sunrize mirror have a kelvin temperature of 3500K which leans more towards white or cool tone. This is an ideal colour temperature for bathrooms because it appears brighter to the eyes and gives the impression of a clean space while enhancing contrast.

3) No Fog

Those who are fond of warm baths and showers are familiar with fogged mirrors. These lighted mirrors eliminate the need to clear off a mirror, due to their built-in defogger pads for a fog free reflection.

4) The Look

Lighted mirrors in a bathroom creates a luxury spa feel and enhances the value of a home. The Halo mirror is a back-lit mirror that creates an evenly distributed glow around the mirror. The light accentuates the mirror and brings a sense of depth to a room. The Sunrize emanates light from both the left and right side of the mirror which focuses more on illuminating the face for better visibility especially when grooming and applying makeup.

5) Safety & Warranty

These Luna Mirrors have been tested and certified for safety. They are UL and CUL certified, and IP44 rated. In other words, these lighted mirrors have passed testing to ensure that they are safe to be installed in particular areas of a washroom where they can potentially be exposed to moisture or splashed with water. In addition, these items are backed with a 5 year manufacturers warranty.

If you would like more information on Luna Mirrors by Fleurco, contact or visit our showroom. Our team of Specialist are always happy to help with both your lighting and bath needs.

bath and vanity lighting tips

Keep these tips in mind when you purchase bath or vanity lighting to help elevate the look of your bathroom.

SINGLE BOWL VANITY

For ideal lighting for grooming, or applying makeup, place sconces on either side of the mirror. This helps eliminate shadows on your face. Ideally, they will be placed 28”- 40” apart and roughly at eye level or centered 66” above the floor. This will vary depending on your mirror size.

TWO BOWL VANITIES

If you don’t have enough space to mount sconces on each side of the mirrors; place vanity lights above each sink.

GENERAL LIGHTING

Include some recessed down lights in areas larger than 100 square feet. You can also use close to ceiling fixtures to supplement sconce lighting.

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Don’t forget to have some fun with lighting too! If you don’t want to mount lighting on your mirror consider using pendants to add some visual interest while still being very functional.

You can also add some flair by adding pendants or chandelier above your tub.
