How To Select A Bathroom Mirror

It goes without saying that when a house is being constructed, renovated or remodeled, we tend to take time to find the best fixtures for the house and this includes the bathroom. The type of vanity, the sink, the faucets, the bathtub and the like are all meticulously researched before we purchase them. But what is usually forgotten is the bathroom mirror, we tend to remember the reflection but forget the mirror that reflects our image. The bathroom mirror can add the touch of class that you so desire, in fact it should be the centrepiece of your bathroom, it should be the centre of attraction.

There are many types of mirrors that are available in the market and selecting one can be really tough. The following points should help you select a good bathroom mirror:

  • The first point which you should consider is to whether go for one mirror or to opt for two mirrors. Usually due to space constraints one mirror is enough but if you have two sinks in your bathroom you can think about getting two mirrors or one large mirror that covers the entire length. So sit with your loved ones and/or with your interior designer and decide what you need.
  • The next point to consider is the size of the mirror. The size of the mirror is usually a major point of contention in the family. While some like full length mirrors, others tend to feel that the mirror should be the size of the vanity or should be lesser in width than that of the vanity. The unspoken rule is that the mirror should not be wider than the vanity as it can hamper the overall design of the bathroom. Again the decision on size rests upon factors such as the available space, type of vanity etc.
  • The most important point to note while selecting a bathroom mirror is the frame. There are many types of frames available that will match your bathroom aesthetic. However, it all comes down to personal preferences. If you like you can opt for a frameless mirror which is a very good option because maintaining it is easy when compared to a mirror with a frame. Taking care of the frame can be a difficult task. If the mirror is going to be the centrepiece of attraction then you can opt for an ornate frame or one that looks like an antique.
  • Another option that you can choose is an illuminated bathroom mirror. If you are a person who likes to shave at home then the illuminated bathroom mirror will look like a godsend as you can shave up close and any hair that you missed will easily be seen. If your beloved loves to apply makeup then the illuminated mirrors will surely help. Some manufacturers even provide demister pads that keep the mirror clear at all times. However, you need to provide for a power source to light the LED bulbs.

The above mentioned points will surely help you to select a bathroom mirror, but in the end it all boils down to personal choices and preferences.
