Take a Good Look at These 9 Bathroom Mirror Ideas

Snow White's evil stepmother posed the question perfectly when she asked, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" From midcentury to industrial, vintage to contemporary, each of us have different tastes. Luckily, when it comes to taking a good look at ourselves in the mirror, there is an overabundance of options to fit every design style, so we don't have to choose just one. But we think these nine 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.

2. The Affordable Option

Eden of Sugar and Charm worked with designer Sarah Sherman Samuel on her bathroom to create a clean and spa-like finish with a subtle rustic touch. The pair added two simple frameless mirrors to reflect light around the room, counteracting the farmhouse shiplap, and presenting an overall modern vibe.

3. The Supersize Delight

Oversize, yet understated, this elegant mirror in Shauna from The House of Silver Lining's modern vintage bathroom is the perfect match for the double-height ceiling and open layout. And the brushed brass edging brings a contemporary touch to the oak cabinetry and vanity unit.

4. The Frameless Mirror

Another Sarah Sherman Samuel creation, this bathroom belongs to the one and only Mandy Moore. Yes, we repeat, Mandy Moore. Key elements of the design include poured terrazzo floors with a custom brass inlay, handmade ceramic wall tile, a floating vanity unit, and gold fixtures. The final touch? Two simple, frameless bathroom mirrors.

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!

7. The Midcentury Mirror

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.

8. The Golden Arch

If you're not blessed with natural coves in your home, you can still enjoy the look without a major refurb, thanks to this bathroom mirror idea. Dabito of design blog Old Brand New has completed his botanical bathroom update with an arched metal frame mirror that complements the green walls, marble panelling, and green ceramic floor tile.

9. The Classic Design

White on white texture — we're on board. Two sleek bentwood mirrors are the feature in this predominantly white bathroom by Erin from Sunny Circle Studio, adding a glamorous and classic touch to the coastal style. Anyone else now craving some pine shiplap with hints of walnut?
