8 Custom Mirror Ideas for Your Bathroom

Bathroom mirrors are not only useful for checking your appearance, shaving, brushing your teeth, or applying makeup, but the importance of custom mirrors for the bathroom extends much further. Custom mirrors direct light into your bathroom; they create the illusion of more space, tone, and character and provide extra usable mirror space.

Bathroom mirrors come in various sizes, ranging from large round mirrors to frameless rectangular mirrors. A bathroom mirror, regardless of size, shape, or style, can enhance the design of your space in more beautiful ways than you can imagine. Remove your current mirror and replace it with decorative mirrors to improve your bathroom design and create the illusion of space.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of mirrors for your bathroom so that you can improve your space and design the bathroom of your dreams. Are you ready for a mirror bathroom renovation?

Inspiring Bathroom Mirror Ideas:

Floor-to-Ceiling Mirrors


In terms of grooming and appearance, you will notice that you spend at least a few minutes in front of a mirror every day before leaving the house. Whether with decorative frames or without, floor-to-ceiling mirrors are beautiful and appealing for the bathroom. A mirror that spans from ceiling to floor makes your bathroom appear more prominent. These mirrors can be placed anywhere in the room or over the sink.

Double Vanity Mirrors

Double bathroom vanities offer all the benefits of separate mirrors. This is a perfect vanity mirror if you share a bathroom with your partner. These custom vanity mirror options provide space for two individuals to get ready each day.

Double mirrors also add value to your home as they are usually hung over the sinks. While one sink is standard, two sinks make your home more desirable and appealing to potential buyers. Also, double vanity mirrors will give your wall space more impact without mirroring your whole wall.

Wall to Wall Mirrors

A full-length or elongated mirror is a great way to add a grand and elegant feel to your bathroom if the space allows it. Wall-to-wall mirrors add a lovely touch above your bathroom vanity. This is an excellent way to make a large bathroom appear even more spacious without overpowering the space.
Wall-to-wall mirrors also open up your bathroom, creating natural light in your space.

Geometric Mirrors

Geometric mirrors are shaped mirrors. These mirrors will offer a sense of elegance and contemporary design to your bathroom space as they are fun and trendy decorative items. Geometric bathroom mirrors can be found in any geometric shape imaginable, not only the standard oval or horizontal wall mirrors.

There are squares and rectangles, circles, hexagons, octagons, and odd combinations of these mirror shapes. Mirrors in square and rectangle shapes can be hung vertically or horizontally to perfectly fit the space above your vanity. You can select any mirror size that is appealing to your design.

Framed Mirrors

While ordinary mirrors can increase the sense of space in a room, adding vanity mirror frames will increase the total lighting output in your bathroom. Frame mirrors typically include a reflective surface on which natural light can bounce. Framed mirrors also add more character to the bathroom’s architecture and design.

Inset Mirrors

A brilliant way to get a more modern look for your frameless mirror is by inset mirrors. Inset mirrors can be put into tile so that the surrounding material essentially frames them to achieve the chic-modern look of a frameless mirror and the sense of polish of a framed mirror.

Pro tip: Layering floating shelves over the top gives extra additional modern flair and some helpful storage

Round Mirrors

Aside from their aesthetic value, round mirrors brighten up any room. These mirrors will illuminate your home both during the day and at night by perfectly reflecting the light around it, saving you money on energy bills in the long run. A round mirror will make your bathroom stand out if your bathroom is full of shapes. Round mirrors do not have to be perfectly circular. Ideally, an oval mirror with abstract shapes can create an illusion of a round mirror.

Suspended Mirrors

Adding a brand-new bathroom mirror is sometimes a good way of giving your bathroom a new and updated look. Suspended bathroom mirrors are an essential element of the modern-day bathroom. These beautiful custom-cut mirrors are designed to use the ceiling as the primary fixing point and do not need to be mounted on the wall.

Choosing Finishes and Textures

Textures and finishes in your bathroom can add a layer of definition and depth to your overall design. Surfaces in your bathroom can include unique tiles, like glass tiles, rugs, or decorative curtains.
Adding beautiful light fixtures such as aged brass or a flush mount light over any custom cut mirrors or an antique mirror can also enhance the look of your bathroom space.
Some important things to keep in mind when choosing textures:

  • Don’t choose texture based on its thickness
  • Make sure the texture you add makes sense and fits your bathroom well, don’t add curtains if unnecessary.
  • Functionality is essential. Avoid using fancy towels or rugs if you share a bathroom with children. These could be ruined.
