When shopping for a bathroom mirror, be sure to review the following:

What bathroom vanity mirror works best for me?


Do you need it to double as storage with a medicine cabinet, or are you looking for something more decorative? Your needs may change depending on which bathroom you’re looking to outfit. Is it the master bath, which will get a lot of use from two people, or a guest bathroom, used only on occasion? Draw on these factors as a guide to help you make a decision.

What style should my bathroom mirrors be?


If you have a contemporary bathroom, consider a sleek square design or a one with a stainless steel frame — or no frame at all. If you’re going for a more eclectic look, add a mirrored face to an antique piece or choose a vintage-style Venetian option. Your walls should also help dictate your choice: are they tiled or painted? Paneled or wallpapered? Depending on your design style, your mirror frame can offer a bold contrast, or complement an already-there pattern or hue.

What size vanity mirrors should I consider?


This is based both on preference and available space in your bathroom. Generally, the larger the better, particularly if you have a double vanity with a shared mirror. This is also true for small spaces — if you have a tiny bathroom, a large, shiny surface will make the space seem larger and reflect more light. The size can also help reinforce style; if you have a smaller, more traditional vanity, you may prefer the look of a decorative option no wider than the sink. The key is to strike the balance with the piece and its surrounding elements while also achieving the function you desire.

Should I buy a lighted mirror?


Lighted mirrors are great because they don't require you to compromise on lighting. Overhead lighting can create shadows, so side-lit mirrors provide even distribution of light. For a trendier version of the side-lit approach, try backlit mirrors — they are more contemporary, offer plenty of sunshine, and make for an interesting bathroom focal point.
