Bathrooms aren’t the easiest spaces in our homes to design, especially when it comes to details. Even if you pick all the right pieces, the choice of final touches like bathroom mirrors can make or break your space.
Mirrors come in many different styles and sizes, so it can be challenging to choose the right one. That’s why we’ve prepared some bathroom mirror ideas for you, as well as tips on how to make any mirror fit your space perfectly.
Let’s check them out.
An old-fashioned gold mirror like this can serve as a beautiful decor piece that can bring a touch of luxury and a retro look into your bathroom.
Though a mirror-like this is an effective piece on its own, you can combine it with a bathroom shelf, sconces, and light fixtures in the same color.
If you’re into bolder aesthetics, you can even hang an eye-catching floral paper behind to truly make a statement and make your gold mirror pop.
There’s nothing wrong with going with regular round and rectangular mirrors. But if you’re searching for an unusual bathroom mirror to take your space to the next level, a mirror-like this, which can leave anyone speechless, is the one for you.
This cobblestone-shaped mirror with a wooden frame was made to be a star of any bathroom. It’s got a lot of character, so it’s best to combine it with minimalistic furniture (e.g., a simple white bathroom vanity) and neutral colors.
Hang it on a plain white wall that’ll allow it to truly pop, and don’t forget to add other wooden (or gold) details like picture frames, drawer pulls, etc., to make your mirror blend into the space perfectly.
If you’re looking for a mirror that’ll never go out of style and that works well in almost every room, a large wooden farmhouse bathroom mirror is an excellent choice.
We recommend going for a larger-than-life rectangular dark-colored mirror with a frame made of quality wood. This option goes excellent with beautiful rustic farmhouse-style bathrooms, but it also works well with modern bathrooms, as it has plain, straight lines.
Add a few details made of wood of the matching color (e.g., small shelves, etc.) and make the frame seamlessly blend into your bathroom design.
Stylish Frameless Illuminated Mirror
Frameless mirrors are unfairly infamous for not being elegant enough. But, as you can see from the photo, this doesn’t have to be the case. They can be a fantastic choice for a smaller bathroom or a powder room where they’re sure to shine.
A frameless bathroom mirror can look amazing if you pick the right one and know what to combine it with.
Choose a round mirror and elevate it by adding some LED lights around the edges. Its shape will make it look like you have a blazing sun on your wall.
Place it on a patterned or textured wall to make it stand out even more. For example, it’ll look great on a patterned wallpaper or a stone wall. This way, it’ll complement the wall nicely without being overpowering.
Industrial style is many people’s favorite because it’s functional, simple, and adds a lot of character to one’s living space. So, if you want this for your bathroom, a practical framed bathroom mirror like this one is a choice you won’t regret.
Its sleek industrial-style frame helps it fit any space seamlessly, and the matching metal shelf underneath provides practical storage space for your face creams and other useful items. It can also serve as a place for displaying your favorite decorative items or houseplants.
A classic simple look never goes out of fashion, so if you’re in doubt about what kind of mirror to choose, this is the style you can’t go wrong with.
A beautiful but simple rectangular black mirror will look good in any space regardless of its design. Farmhouse or modern, your bathroom will look great with this wall mirror, especially if you color-match it with your cabinet, lighting fixtures, and other essential details.
We recommend opting for rustic black vanity lights and hanging them above your mirror to elevate a simple mirror like this.
Modern Dual Oval Mirrors
Among a plethora of modern-style mirrors available on the market, we found that the large oval ones are the best if you’re looking for a statement piece. They look best in pairs, so getting them is one of the best mirror ideas for double vanity you’ll find.
And, no matter which style of bathroom vanity you choose, these long oval mirrors won’t disappoint and will manage to give your bathroom a modern and elegant feel. Since they’re very long and slim, they’ll also create an illusion of much higher walls.
The easiest way to blend them into your overall bathroom design is to get some sconces or light fixtures in the same color as the mirror frames.
There’s a reason why the Scandinavian style is a staple in interior design. It’s a unique style that combines sleek design, simplicity, nature, and comfiness.
And if this is what you’re looking for in your bathroom, then this Scandinavian-style modern bathroom mirror is something you should check out.
A minimalist mirror with a retro frame made of dark wood will give your bathroom a natural feel and create a sense of harmony if used with matching vanity.
Nothing can bring luxury into your home quite like gold. So, if you’re looking to add a dose of opulence to your bathroom, golden mirrors like these are the way to go.
They’re extravagant, full of ornaments, and are sure to make your bathroom royalty-worthy.
Mirrors like these work best in spaces dominated by neutral colors (e.g., white, the color of light wood) and luxurious materials (e.g., marble). To make it pop in the ocean of white ceramic, you can complement the mirror with light fixtures and other details in matching golden hues.
Arched Statement Piece
This mirror is easily one of the most exceptional pieces we’ve found. So, if you’re a fan of dramatic, unique items, this mirror will surely bring a smile to your face.
A large bathroom mirror with a marble frame in the Gothic arch shape like this is a true show-stopper that’ll surely bring a dose of luxury and art into your living space.
Use it as a centerpiece for your bathroom, but don’t forget to match your one-of-a-kind mirror with other bathroom furniture (e.g., vanity countertops, etc.) by opting for marble and other luxurious materials.
As you can see, there are many different bathroom mirrors you can choose from. From retro to modern, black, silver, and gold, they’re all equally beautiful and able to make your bathroom shine.
All you have to do is pick the right one for you!
How can I make my bathroom mirror look better?
To improve your bathroom mirror’s look, you can order a custom-made mirror frame that’ll match your vision and the overall bathroom style perfectly. If you’re handy and in the mood for crafting, you can also opt for a DIY bathroom mirror frame.
You can also elevate your plain old mirror’s look by surrounding it with decorative details (drawer pulls, lighting fixtures, decor items, etc.) or furniture pieces in matching style and color.
Additionally, if you have a frameless mirror, you can adorn it with LED lights on the edges and truly make it pop.
How do you dress up a frameless mirror?
There are several ways to dress up a frameless mirror:
- Add some LED lights to its borders.
- Tuck in some decorative greenery behind it.
- Paint around it (you can even paint a frame of sorts).
- Apply decorative vinyl decal on the mirror surface (or around it).
- Create a mosaic around it using seashells, sea glass, beads, pebbles, etc.
What color should my bathroom mirror be?
The color of your bathroom mirror should at least partly match the dominant colors in your bathroom. It doesn’t have to match your vanity color, but you should either have your fixtures in the same color or add some details in matching color and style.
The colors that typically go well with almost all styles are white, silver, black, gold, and light and dark wood.
What type of mirror is best for bathrooms?
The type of mirror that’s best for your bathroom depends strictly on your bathroom style and design.
There are many options you can choose from. Round, rectangular, asymmetrical, framed, frameless — the possibilities are endless.
