Bathroom mirrors are one of the most important aspects of any bathroom. A quick and easy way to give your bathroom a new look is to change or add mirrors. It is a good idea to look at several bathroom displays to determine which style appeals to you. Remember that what looks one way on display or the printed page will look differently in your space, but you can get great ideas.

It is important to consider the design and style of the vanity and lighting fixtures when choosing a mirror. It should complement the style and accent the design. Some of the modern designs include unframed or beveled circular mirrors. The sizes of bathroom mirrors should vary depending on the location in relation to the vanity. For a double-sink vanity, it is usually best to have a mirror that extends from wall to wall.

Let Bathroom Mirrors Enhance Natural Light

For a one-sink vanity, the mirror should never be larger than the vanity. It is acceptable for sidelights to be extended past the width of the vanity. The location of the mirror is important for making the room feel larger and brighter. If there is a window, placing the mirror where it will reflect the light from the window will increase the natural light in the room.

Something as simple as placing an arch over a rounded mirror will give an old-fashioned look to the room. Bathroom mirrors are excellent decorative items. Mirrors can be round, oval, rectangular, or arched. They may be framed or beveled. Some are made with a fog-resistant coating. The sky is the limit on the designs available.
