Tips for Choosing a Bathroom Mirror
There are a few main things buyers should consider when shopping for a bathroom mirror. Think about matching it to your style, the size, shape and the primary purposes of the mirror.
Consider the Room’s Style
Its important that you match the style of your mirror to the style you're projecting in your bathroom. To complete your look, use a Venetian mirror as a focal point in the bathroom, or create a subdued look by going classic. Whatever you use, make sure to create a unified look among all elements.
Size and Shape
Mirrors need to be large enough to be useful, but small enough to fit in well with the overall design and function of your bathroom.
Buyers should also consider the mirror’s function before making a purchase. If you need more storage space, consider purchasing a medicine cabinet for additional space. If you apply your makeup in the bathroom, consider getting a mirror that provides some lighting.
