Vanity mirror problem
Victor
April 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have an issue. My vanity is off center for the light so the Mirror will be off center no matter what. I need a 16 inch mirror so I need help finding one under $100.

Victor, are you sure it's the mirror that is the issue? Perhaps the right light fixture can make the difference? Just a thought. Can you post a picture of the whole area, with light, wall and cabinet.

Hey Victor,,,how tall is your ceiling? I asked you that because we had a similar issue in a master bathroom where we added double sinks where there had been a single sink. We looked on line and used a "framed" wall mounted closet door mirror. Now, in our case we had 9'-0" ceilings so we could use a 60"H mirror. Sometimes, that tall vertical effect is a great detail in a room.

Most home improvement or major retail stores would have something more budget minded.

Your picture needs to be from farther away so we can see the whole area. This photo is just confusing.

Hello, what is happening above the tile work, or what is the recessed area about?

the bathroom is less than 5 ft wide so that was as far away as I could get lol!
Above the tile is a patched box out where the old medicine chest used to be. Just a stained piece of plywood. If I get a 16 inch wide mirror it will def hide everything it just won't be centered with the sink and vanity.

It does look off but what's that wood box that the light is attached to? Maybe you could remove the light and attach a pendant that could be looped and attached to the ceiling above the middle of the sink wall. Cool mirror...

I don't see the light fixture but I truly agree you should get the light(s) and mirror you want. Mark where the mirror hangs, install the light(s), then hang your mirror.
