Tips for choosing the right styled mirror for your bathroom

A good bathroom mirror is an essential component to many rooms, especially your bathroom. There are many options for size, style and shape to choose from, how do you go about choosing the best one for your design? We’ve categorized each style to help guide you select the perfect mirror!

Choosing the right sized mirror

Typically, bathroom mirrors are not wider than the vanity itself. The common approach is to make the mirror exactly as wide as the vanity so the two line up perfectly. Of course, this is much easier with a custom-sized mirror because you may not happen to find a pre-made mirror in the exact width of your vanity. If they are not the same width, another solid approach is to make the mirror about 70 to 80 percent as wide as the vanity so the mirror appears a bit smaller, but not shrunken. With respect to height, a functional mirror needs only to reach about 30 centimeters above and below the eye line of the people who will be using it. But the more height you can get, the better because it will provide more viewing angles and a more open look to space. Try to reach at least 1.2 to 2 meters above the floor.

Rectangle or Square Mirrors

This square shaped mirror provides a versatile, clean, and refined look to any bathroom design. Rectangular mirrors are best for bathrooms if you like a full view of yourself when grooming, but a square mirror can also be practical if large enough.

Circular Mirrors

This untraditional shape adds luxury and elegance to traditional Victorian bathroom design or a more feminine shabby-chic style. Choose a larger model than you would for a rectangularly shaped style to ensure the mirror is practical for everyday grooming.

Framed or Frameless Mirrors

Frameless mirrors are a popular choice in bathrooms. They give modern appeal, and bathrooms even in somewhat traditional homes often run a bit more modern to achieve a clean, airy, spa-like look. Frameless mirrors work most easily in contemporary or modern and minimalist spaces without a lot of busy decors. Mirrors with elaborate frames tend to suit traditional spaces where the other elements are also very detailed and decorative.
