Buyers Guide to Bathroom Mirrors

At Bathroom International, we know most people prefer to keep their house clean and presentable with an affordable and good quality interior d├ęcor. But don’t forget to make your bathroom presentable too with the help of unique and intricately designed bathroom mirrors.

Many people tend to overlook the importance of the mirror in their bathroom. They try to buy bathroom mirrors without due consideration of their size, colour, design, and price. Although it appears to be an ordinary accessory, in a place like the bathroom yet it can be a key feature. The right kind of mirror can increase the aesthetic beauty of your bathroom, but how to select the suitable bathroom mirror? Let us help with this simple guide to bathroom mirrors.

The required space and size

From an interior designer’s point of view, a bathroom should have adequate space for a mirror. The space required by mirrors depends upon the size of the bathroom. Small mirrors seem sufficient for personal bathrooms or en suites. Medium to larger sized mirrors can be placed in the bathrooms of hotels and offices. What should be kept in mind is that mirrors have a unique ability to make any bathroom appear larger which is incredibly beneficial, especially for smaller sized bathrooms. A well-adjusted and well-spaced mirror can make the bathroom look spacious and comfortable. For this reason, you have to take a closer look at the size of your bathroom, the height of its ceiling and the size of the wall on which the mirror is going to hang. You should be careful when placing the mirror to avoid placing it too close to the sink or ceiling.

The design

The design of a mirror is as essential as its size. Beautiful floral patterned and wooden carved mirrors can prove to be a unique addition to the bathroom. The right style of mirror can change your whole mood. Designs also reflect the personality of both the home, and its owner, and can be chosen to match the interior aesthetics of the rest of the house. We spend a lot of time, especially at the beginning of our day, in the bathroom- why not have your bathroom fittings mirror the mood you want to start your day with?

The color scheme

A uniform colour scheme throughout your bathroom will make it more presentable- for example, placing a mirror with deep red borders in a bathroom with very light coloured tiles is definitely not a good idea. The light tiled bathroom will definitely require a mirror with lighter borders, or perhaps even no border. Similarly, mirrors with wooden borders can work really well with almost all types of colour schemes. Another solution to matching colour schemes is to stick with the original colours to create uniformity by having the same coloured mirror as that of the bathroom.

These are a few considerations that should be kept in mind while buying mirrors for bathrooms in order to have an attractive bathroom for you and your loved ones.
