A simple way to add character to your bathroom design is by changing the mirrors. Before you begin the search through an almost unlimited number of choices, you should first consider the following:
What is your bathroom style?
The style of the mirrors, vanity and lighting should all match.
Traditional Style Defined: Popular, time honored and ageless; dark woods and hand carvings; Popular styles include oval or rectangular shaped mirrors.
Contemporary Style Defined: Urban and sleek with modern simplicity, clean lines – “less is more”; casual, light woods or dramatic stains; styles include round, square and frameless mirrors that extend from the outer edges of the vanity.
Transitional Style Defined: Bridging established tastes and modern influences – these selections reflect the best of the old and new, combined for today’s changing preferences. Styles include all shapes; usually the finish will define the style, to include a combination of material, such as exotic woods and artesian metals (stainless or copper).
What is the size of your vanity?
Vanity size will determine mirror size. The mirror should not extend beyond the outside edge of the vanity. If you have a double sink vanity and want a contemporary look, an unframed large single mirror that extends from the outer edge of the vanity will keep it simple. For a traditional look, use two single oval mirrors hung over each bowl.
To add character, consider choosing two different mirrors to hang over the individual bowls – this is a great way to express your individuality based on which side of the vanity you use.
The answers to these two questions will help narrow your search to specific keywords to help sort through and find the best vanity mirrors to match your personal style.
