One of the easiest and most effective ways of transforming a bathroom is by adding a frame or replacing an existing mirror frame. Because the mirror in most bathrooms take up so much space, they become a focal piece. The style of the frame can set the design tone for the rest of the room. Take a look at the different styles in pictures (1) and (2).
Go Large: When it comes to bathroom mirror ideas, the old design principle still holds true. A large mirror can make a small and compact room feel much larger and spacious (3) (4).
Vanity Design: If you have a large vanity space, you can always break it up by having a his and hers sink and a separate mirror for each sink just like in picture (5). Or have a long mirror to share (6).
Lighting: Lighting plays a big role in making grooming convenient and comfortable. The ideal set up is to have one light on both sides of the mirror at face level and another light attached to the wall right above the mirror. This way you reduce the amount of shadows that are casted across the face. Another way of making grooming as easy as possible is to install one of those pull out side mirrors – the ones that you can flip over and there is a magnified side.
Other unique designer ideas include having lights embedded into the mirror for a luxurious touch as seen in picture (9). Or having the mirror back lit (10) adds a nice soft and relaxing glow to the bathroom. 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10
