A mirrored mosaic wall in this small bathroom not only helps to open the space, but also lends an intriguing visual effect.
Instead of applying a straight sheet of mirror into a nook inset or backsplash, consider creating a design using individual tiles. This enhances the mirror’s aesthetic by providing a sense of texture.
By no means is hanging a mirror completely out of the question. However, instead of just one, consider creating a display with mirrors of different styles or sizes for more appeal.
You may also want to think about mixing mirrors with artwork. You’ll receive that sense of expanded space while also creating an interesting gallery wall.
Or, instead of mixing hanging mirrors, juxtapose a hanging mirror with mirrored furniture. This look feels even more layered because there are different dimensions of reflection.
If you're more comfortable with only one mirror, try to find something that feels cohesive with the furniture nearby. The result will feel like a unified vignette.
Or use a mirror that doubles as an artistic piece for a compelling look.

Feel free to work this idea into your aesthetic in smaller doses, such as focusing only on drawers or the inside panels of a cabinet.
