A good mirror is arguably the centerpiece of any bathroom. When you really think about it, you use your bathroom mirror for a lot. Whether it's carefully executing every step of your 12-step Korean skincare routine or plucking out pesky gray hairs, your bathroom mirror is a crucial part of both the beginning and end of your day (and maybe even several parts in between).
Not only do they serve the functional purpose of helping you pamper, but a good bathroom mirror can also create the illusion of more space and light. This can be a huge plus for small bathrooms or bathrooms that receive minimal natural light, as the mirrors reflect the light that comes through, creating more depth.

As with every other design element in your bathroom, it's important to make sure your mirror reflects your personal taste. Whether you're going for a midcentury look, an industrial feel, a vintage vibe, or a contemporary aesthetic, there's a mirror out there for everyone. We've rounded up our nine favorite bathroom mirror ideas that are worth considering for your own spa-worthy en suite.
1. The Pivot Mirror
Featuring clean lines and an interesting profile, these pivot mirrors add a polished touch to Kelly Mindell from Studio DIY's eclectic bathroom makeover. The aged brass frame perfectly complements the pink and green color palette and provides a timeless finish with a nod to earlier decades.

5. The Graphic Approach
A black-framed bathroom mirror makes a bold statement in this white space, belonging to Jen from The Effortless Chic, especially when paired with other black fixtures. The shape of this simple-yet-modern piece of decor creates a stark geometric contrast against the rectangular metro tiles, while the warm wood of the vanity cabinet and a pair of tan pendants from Cedar & Moss warm things up.
6. The Simple and Sophisticated Mirror
We love the bathroom mirror idea in this space designed by Kathleen Field of Lindsay Hill Interiors. She mixed metal finishes beautifully by pairing brass mirrors, complete with an ornamental circle at the top center, with brass wall sconces, chrome plumbing fixtures, and matte black cabinet hardware. Swoon!

There's no need to stop the midcentury look at the bathroom door. This vintage vanity setup in Bre from Brepurposed's eclectic pad looks stunning with a round wood mirror and brass wall sconces, especially against the plain white tiled walls.
