Ensure that your choice is safety accredited

If you are planning to have electronics anywhere near water, you need to ensure that they pass all relevant safety tests and are compliant with EU certifications.

Decide if you want to a mirrored finish

A mirror finish can add a sleek and sophisticated element to your bathroom décor, but you have to remember that this choice will affect your viewing experience. Mirrored bathroom TVs have a semi-reflective coating applied to the glass, and when the TV is switched off, you can use the screen as a mirror.

That said, you sacrifice efficiency on both ends – the mirror is not fully reflective, and the TV is not as bright and clear. This can affect viewing, and might mean that the picture is not as clear as a non-mirrored option. That said, a mirrored bathroom TV can be an excellent choice for those who want to maximise spare and have their screen do double duty.
