How do I choose a bathroom mirror?

Bathrooms are always a great area to update and remodel. A new bathroom will certainly increase the value of your property according to Property Price Advice. Not only can it be a decent investment, but it can be exciting and fun as well. When updating your bathroom it can be easy to feel slightly overwhelmed, but you don’t have to be! Simple questions such as, “how do I choose a bathroom mirror?” can be solved quickly!

Let’s start with the basics.

How big should your bathroom mirror be? 

When considering the size of items going into your bathroom, you should always think about the size of your bathroom. 

Small bathrooms can easily feel cramped and stuffy, but a mirror will open a room right up. Not only does it create an illusion of space, but it will reflect light and brighten your bathroom as well. 

However, the space in a small bathroom might be limited. Choosing a mirror that will assist you with daily tasks such as shaving your face or putting on your makeup is absolutely vital. After that, it can come down to preference. 

In a larger bathroom, we usually go for a large mirror over the sink. There is a lot of space to play within a big bathroom, so you can get creative with the size and shapes. 

While mirrors are beneficial for a list of reasons, the functionality should always come first. If you need to be able to see your face up close and your outfits from head to toe – make sure you find a mirror that suits your needs.
