Difference Between Backlit and Normal LED Mirrors

The main difference between backlit and normal just frontlit mirrors is the placement of their LED lights. They may also differ in design and look; because of this fundamental difference, one form of the LED lit mirror is more portable and versatile than the other. A backlit mirror is a form of a lighted mirror in the technical sense; the lights in backlit mirrors are situated behind them.

On the other hand,normal frontlit LED mirrors usually shine from the front rather than the back. 

Design and Appearance

Because of the differences in LED placed, backlit and normal only frontlit LED mirrors have different designs and representations. In backlit mirrors you can see the glow of light glowing from behind the mirror. And to create a complete backlit impression, backlit mirrors are always hung on a wall.

A section of the top, bottom, left, and right edges of some backlit mirrors are additionally coated with reflecting frosted edges. Therefore, they create a well-defined border around the mirror’s edges, and when light flows through the frosted border of the mirror, it provides a front-lit appearance.

On the other hand, normal frontlit mirrors are always illuminated from the front. The lights in certain LED mirror types are built around the mirror’s base. As with backlit models, we say within, not around. The mirror surfaces also have etchings allowing the light to pass through where the lights are located within the base.
