How should I place these over my toilet? Straight down?

It looks like you have more than just those two. How many were you thinking of using?

Yes, think it is important to know how much mirrors you have.

Yes I have three. I was going to put them on a small wall in my bedroom but I have decided to use that space for my wedding portrait and was thinking about putting these over the toilet.

I think that it could work just play with the placements for a while to see what they look like.

Not crazy about mirrors over a toilet, no matter how small and no matter what they may NOT reflect.

LOL! abby and 2dogs, I think you may have something there. Do you have another space that needs a little bling?

How about a couple of floating shelves above the w/c like the inspiration pic below?

Denita has a great idea for that space, wnlatton. I especially like the glass shelves. :)

Then maybe I could put my portrait somewhere else and put the starburst mirrors in the spot I was thinking.

May we see the small wall in your bedroom? I think they may work soooo much better in a bedroom vs a bathroom.

I am confuse you can have a mirror over a sink but not over a toilet. I would try it and see what it looks like before you decide to ditch it. If you do not need the storage in the bathroom then there is not reason for shelf's. If you need it then I would say go with the shelf. The mirror will take up less space than the shelf's.

Yes, I like the look of glass shelves. Armygirl1987 unless it is a girls only bathroom mirrors there is not a good idea. I love starburst mirrors, I am sure wnlatton will find a nice spot to show them off. Are those from Ballard, they are super cute?

@saratogaswizzlestick-why are the mirrors not a good idea. Maybe I can learn something that I don't know?

Ha, now I will delete too. There really is not a delicate, refined way to tackle that subject.

Well, I would love to meet a man that can look at his stuff in the mirror. Maybe I should delete this.

Are we having too much fun here? LOL! wnlatton, your wedding photo deserves to go in a very special place. Don't put the mirrors in that spot if your wedding photo should go there :)

@happy-I think so, if only I knew the reasons I would have let it go but was not sure and both ladies was so kind to tell me the reasons.

Isn't it fun to learn something new every day??!! Things you never thought about!

Please use the wedding photo as planned, but put the mirrors on a small accent wall, most likely in a straight line going down.

unless the man is 20 feet tall, I don't think the mirrors will reflect his package! LMAO!

Seriously, I don't like mirrors over the toilet ... there's already a mirror in the small room.

A nice piece of art that makes you smile or the shelves would look very nice.

The small green wall will work.....not sure which one you are thinking about, but I am thinking about the one that is NOT next to the door.

I was thinking the mirrors on the small narrow wall as that seems to be the right proportion for them. BUT they could work next to this door now. A mirror is great beside a door. They could make a small arc over the outlets. Do you have other silver things in this area???

I think that will still be ok. Maybe tape out the size and shape and see what it looks like on this door wall.......and on the green wall and see which one you like the best. Thanks for not giving up on using these!!! They are beautiful!
