Can You Convert your Plug-In mirror to a Hardwired? Yes, but...

Wow!  Our customers sometimes ask whether they can convert their plug-in wall-mounted makeup mirror to a hardwired mirror.  The answer is "Yes, but..."


  • If not done properly according to electrical codes and with proper grounding, the conversion can result in a dangerous condition, exposing the user to painful and possibly deadly electrical shock.
  • The warranty is voided.
  • There is not usually room in the base of a plug-in mirror, for the required electrical connections necessary for hard-wiring.
  • Hardwired mirrors have bases with mounting holes designed to align with standard electrical boxes.  Plug-in mirrors usually lack similarly aligned mounting holes, adding complication to the conversion.

Our recommendation:  Don't do it.
