Choose the right size of the mirror
First, when choosing a mirror, you need to match its dimensions to the size and type of interior. It is worth establishing this detail already at the design stage, if it is to be an important element in the bathroom. At a later time, despite your desire, it may be difficult to fit it. Before buying a mirror, check carefully the length and width of the place where it is to be located. Consider the distance from other objects
