Whether to brush your teeth, fix your hair, shave, apply make-up or simply glance at your own reflection, a bathroom mirror is a must in every home. Nobody can dispute the need for a mirror but, as with any household item, purchasing one comes with its own set of options. Certainly, there are various types of bathroom mirrors available on the market, each boasting a different size, shape, design or special feature.
At B&M, we offer a huge variety of high-quality mirrors to suit various tastes and styles of bathroom decor. Yet, with so much choice available, picking the right mirror to go with your carefully decorated bathroom could become quite a daunting task. To help you out, we’ve put together a helpful guide which covers the different features to consider when selecting your ideal bathroom mirror. So before venturing into our fully-stocked showroom, or scrolling through our online shop, take a look at these helpful tips and inspiring pics so that you may make the right choice for your home.
Different Types of Mirrors: What To Consider!
The shape of the bathroom mirror you pick could end up defining the style and atmosphere of your bathroom. Before making your choice, start by identifying whether you have limited wall space or a modest sized room that needs help looking more spacious. For example, oval-shaped mirrors are highly compact, making them the perfect pick for bathrooms with narrow walls. In addition to being practical, in recent years, rounded mirrors have established themselves as the trending style, which means that hanging an oval-shaped mirror could easily infuse your bathroom decors with a modern edge.
When picking the right sized bathroom mirror, you must consider the size of your vanity but also the entire room as a whole. Typically, you should pick a mirror that is around 1 to 2 inches shorter than the width of the countertop of your bathroom vanity. Following this rule of thumb helps you to keep your decor well-proportioned and create a well-balanced room. However, if your bathroom is lacking in space and natural light, we suggest also picking a large mirror to reflect more light and create the illusion of more space. This creates a bright and cheery space that you may look upon as your own personal hub of relaxation.
LED lighting? Extra storage? A mirror and stereo combo? When picking the right mirror for your bathroom, consider what your bathroom needs the most in order to be transformed into your own serene paradise.
If your bathroom is lacking in natural light, find a large mirror that is fitted with LED lighting. Apart from brightening up the room, the extra light will make putting on your make-up or thoroughly cleansing your face that much easier. Alternatively, if lack of space is your main concern, pick a mirror that doubles as a cabinet for storing bathroom essentials. Without over-cluttering an already crowded room, a mirror cabinet with handy shelving could help you to keep your bathroom looking neat and tidy whilst providing you with that much needed bathroom mirror.
On the other hand, if you want your mirror to be as smart and modern as the rest of your home, pick a bluetooth bathroom mirror that syncs up to your phone or audio device! Having the same advantage as an illuminated mirror, bluetooth mirrors are also fitted with bright LED lighting, but these smarter alternatives kick things up a notch with built-in speakers and bluetooth. Being able to connect with any mobile device, these mirrors conveniently allow you to play and listen to your favourite songs without getting any of your devices wet.
