21 bathroom mirror ideas for every style

Designed by Heidi Caillier

There’s a lot to love about bathroom mirrors: unlike people, they always let you know if there’s something green stuck in your teeth, they never judge you for looking, and they provide the ability to infinite style. For all intents and purposes, let’s focus on the latter. Indeed, the right mirror can bring a sense of space, enhance natural light (or act as a window when there isn’t one) and add a ton of design to walls. So let’s all take a hard look in the mirror with these twenty-one bathroom mirror ideas that are sure to elevate any space, no matter its size, shape, style or budget.

Materials like brick and stone add so much dimension, and in a small bathroom it’s necessary to use your walls to communicate style. Also ideal in small bathrooms? A floor-to-ceiling wall mirror. It also doubles up on the gorgeous architectural elements (visually, at least). Add color with accessories and a sense of polish with fancy soaps, as design firm Arent & Pyke does in this space.

Who said mirrors were limited to the wall? In this bathroom, owners Christian Burch and John Frenchette opted for a vanity cabinet with a mirror, which makes the room appear larger and also adds a touch of glamour.

The folded corner mirror

We love a dramatic bubblegum pink moment, not to mention that sticking to a solid color palette will make things much easier during the design process. And it’s far from boring! London design firm 2LG Studio turns the awkward corner into something awesome with a custom vanity and mirror. Let’s call it the bent mirror corner effect.

The double sink, single mirror

Just because you have double sinks doesn’t mean you need double mirrors. Break up the symmetry with a single mirror that extends from one end of the vanity to the other. If there is a cabinet hidden behind the mirror, even better, because a large mirror will double the storage space. In this bathroom designed by Arent & Pyke, the mirror’s simple bronze frame highlights the other shimmering details and pops against the dark gray grooved drawers and black sconces.

Double Angular Mirrors

Double sinks call for double mirrors. This frees up wall space for additional lighting between the two mirrors that you couldn’t have without a wall-to-wall mirror. And if you love symmetry, this is the bathroom mirror idea for you.

For something a little more interesting, step away from the classic rectangular and circular mirrors and try something with an interesting shape.

The window treatment mirror

Don’t let too many windows and not enough wall space keep you from staring at yourself in the mirror all day. If there is a narcissist, there is a way. I’m joking. But really, take note of this unusual space and fix a mirror above the sink in front of the window. Then place curtains in the middle of the window for a visually intriguing approach. This will ensure privacy, but it will also keep things interesting in terms of style.

The Lean Vertical Mirror

When designing a small powder room, you will have no choice but to get creative. Here, the designer flanked the sink with sconces, then added a narrow vertical mirror to fit nicely into the narrow space between the window and the corner.

The Leaning Full-Length Mirror

This is by far the easiest bathroom mirror idea because all you have to do is walk into the room and lean it against the wall. Still, it looks sophisticated and polished. The bold matte black finish, luxe marble floors, and neutral colors ensure a polished ensemble with just a touch of eccentricity in this Hecker Guthrie-designed bathroom.

And here we are again with classic double mirrors on double sinks, only this time they are oval. The learning moment? Pick a pattern and stick it on for a cohesive aesthetic. In this case, 2LG Studio chose oval mirrors to mirror the rounded sinks and undermounts.

Even if your sink is right up against a wall-to-wall window, you can still have a mirror moment. Try placing a small hand mirror on the shelf for easy access and touch-ups, and/or attaching a retractable vanity mirror to the wall for those times when you need your hands free.

Whether you’re going gold and glitzy, bold and colorful, or decorating and elaborate, a unique bathroom mirror is the perfect way to add an extra touch of personal style. In this bathroom, the blue leather outer layer of the mirror is the perfect transition between the formal elements, like the intense vanity base, marble surface and black walls, and the playful ceiling wallpaper.

The missing mirror

From the tiled floor to the sconce, the marble vanity and even the romantic bathrobe, this bathroom designed by Studio DB has strong Art Deco roots. Although retro-inspired, every detail gets a fresh, modern interpretation. But let’s cut to the chase and ask these hard-hitting questions: who needs a giant mirror when you can stare at a really cool wall lamp instead?

In a similar but far more cheeky vein, Hecker Guthrie hung a portrait in place of the mirror above the bathroom sink. The odd silhouette is a loose rendition of what you’d actually see if there was a real mirror there. The simple, slim pendant light instead of going the typical symmetrical route and flanking a sink with sconces is also a subtle yet bold choice.

The vanguard mirror

Rather than bringing in flashy gold mirrors, Hecker Guthrie stacked two frameless round mirrors for a unique design. Likewise, they chose clever, modern lighting instead of overdone chandeliers. This allows us to focus on the real statement: this sculptural metal and red marble sink. Dark wood details and wall panels also bring a down-to-earth, nature-inspired sense without overwhelming the entire space.
