What shape of mirror will be suitable?
The most common shape of mirror in most Polish bathrooms is a rectangle. Although it enjoys unflagging popularity, it is also worth paying attention to models of round and oval shape. It is such mirrors increasingly often appear in projects proposed by architects and interior decorators. They give the space an interesting character, and also create many opportunities for decorative frame
Round mirrors in a distinctive, thick wooden frame will look great in minimalist bathrooms in Scandinavian style. On the other hand, you can opt for a metal frame with delicate decoration, surrounding the entire mirror. Extremely impressive also look mirrors with any modeling elements, resembling the rays of the sun. They can also serve as an interesting focal point in the room
Although so far oval mirrors have been reserved for exclusive restaurants and hotels, they also enter the private apartments. The elongated shape, depending on the location in the bathroom can be placed vertically or horizontally. This opens up new design possibilities. An alternative version to the classic rectangle is also a square. Other shapes, more irregular are a little less practical for everyday use at home.
Ideal mirror size
Customers in stores most often opt for a size of about 60 by 80 centimeters. This is a sufficient size that allows you to browse freely in it – to arrange your hair, put on lenses or apply makeup. However, it usually cuts off the neckline and shoulders and definitely does not allow you to look through it. Such a dimension will work mainly for hanging over a single sink. Similarly, when choosing a round mirror, it is advisable to choose one with a diameter of at least 60 centimeters
In the case of double washbasins, it is much better to use a single rectangular mirror, which with its width will cover the entire range of washbasins. The standard size is twice as large, namely 120 by 80 centimeters. However, you should be guided primarily by your own taste. Perhaps two round mirrors, which will introduce symmetry to the interior, will be more suitable for the arrangement. But do not forget about the practical side of the mirror and choose such a size that you can comfortably look in it.
Choose the highest quality
Bathroom mirror should be selected appropriately to the interior. In modern arrangements, wall models with simple forms will work well. You can consider choosing a mirror in a discreet, thin steel frame.

It is worth matching them with the color palette of the bathroom or the material of cabinets and equipment
A great idea will be to complement the decor of a subdued bathroom with gold or copper taps and beige, smooth floor tiles, with a round mirror with a firm golden frame. On the one hand, it will relate in color to the elements in the bathroom, and on the other hand, it will break the calm and natural style in the room. Such a mirror introduces a truly modern touch
