Help!! How would you plan out the rest of this space
March 4, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just had the shower area redone and now I can't decide where to put some wall cabinets on the left hand side of my bathroom where the sink and toilet live. I plan to have the same color granite counter top installed to the left of the sink cab to serve as a makeup vanity area. I also plan to use this mirror. Do I put the silver mirror over the sink or over the makeup counter? I want to have some sort of symmetry. I appreciate any thoughts!

The "real-life" designers will check in, they're probably doing their day jobs! IMHO you will need mirrors (the one above the sink could hide a recessed cabinet for storage) above both areas, the sink and the vanity, as well as proper lighting for both areas. Do you plan to change out the current cabinet? and when you add the granite for the vanity area will it then be a large slab with a cut-out for the sink?

I would put the mirror above the sink. I'm not sure how it would look to have it to the side, above the make-up vanity area. I think it would be unbalanced. You could add some floating shelves above the vanity area.

Madeline, thank you...I am keeping the base cab and my granite slab is a "utility top" -no cutout.

HI -- Can you get another exact same mirror , then you would have one for each area. Then you may need a smaller standing mirror to do close up makeup . OR use that mirror in another room and have a full mirror installed to cover that whole area .

I agree that i need 2 mirrors, 1 above the sink and 1 above the makeup area. How do I tie in the silver on the 1 mirror to a medicine cab/mirror? should I do a white med cab and put up a white cab above the toilet and leave the silver mirror for over the makeup area??

lefty47 - Thanks ! Unfortunately I can't get another mirror like the one in the pic :( I was thinking of that. I could install an area mirror, but it's not my first choice.

I would put the framed mirror above the sink top. If you need to, purchase a lighted make-up mirror for the vanity area. Shelving might be a good idea for above the vanity. You would have to be careful not to "clutter" them. I would probably tend to put two coordinating wall art pieces on both sides of the mirror.
