How to Choose a Bathroom Mirror
You may think that choosing a bathroom mirror is easy, but it’s not as easy as you may think. Consideration needs to be given to to the type, style and size of the mirror, to ensure your bathroom is as practical and as functional as possible.
Types of Bathroom Mirrors
Thankfully, there are only two types of bathroom mirrors; standalone mirrors and mirror cabinets. With standalone mirrors, the only function is the mirror itself, while mirror cabinets provide the functionality of a mirror plus provide additional storage. For bathrooms lacking space or bathrooms with inadequate storage, the latter option is a more efficient solution.
Bathroom Mirror Styles
Bathroom mirrors are available in an array of designs and styles, even more so with standalone mirrors. They can be square, rectangular, round; any size at all. Round mirrors and rectangular mirrors with curved edges are currently tending. However, when choosing a style, consider practicality. Often, the most practical bathroom mirror is the planest.
Bathroom Mirror Size
Perhaps most important of all is the size of the mirror. A large mirror is a practical mirror. Larger mirrors provide more light, which will make a bathroom appear brighter and larger.
While a mirror can be placed anywhere in a bathroom, above the vanity is the most practical position. This also helps to determine what size mirror is the best fit.
Bathroom mirrors and mirrored shaving cabinets are commonly the same widths as the vanity. If you have a 600mm wide vanity, then you will have a 600mm wide mirror or mirrored shaving cabinet. Though, this isn’t always the case. Opting for two side by side mirrors (with twin basis) is also a popular choice for contemporary bathrooms or one smaller mirror centre-positioned above a vanity is also trending.
The benefit of choosing a mirrored shaving cabinet the same width as the vanity is that it can be integrated into a recessed wall for a seamless, flush finish to provide both style and functionality.
