Design Tip: Accent Mirrors For Your Vanity

One design tip that I’ve been excited to share with you has to do with a room that often gets overlooked in the home when it comes to decor. That’s right, you guessed it! The Bathroom. We really don’t spend that much time in our bathrooms, but when you think about it, a bathroom is a key component to the home. What’s one of the main things you check on when buying or selling a home? The condition and overall look of  the bathroom.

My favorite design tip for your bathroom is to add a modern flare and use a statement mirror over your sink instead of the age-old frameless square or rectangular mirrors, or (dare I say) medicine cabinets. Yikes! By adding an accent mirror over your sink, you’ll be able to show your own personal style and modernize the space. Remember to keep it simple, but have fun with the shape, design, texture, and size!

Here are some of my favorite mirrors for bathrooms. You can use any of these in a single powder room, or the master bathroom with double vanity. Just remember to pick a style that you love – you’ll be looking back at yourself through it everyday!

This Levico Mirror from Restoration Hardware  just might be the winner in my book. This mirror can stand on its own and will fit into most any style home. It’s made out of reclaimed solid oak and has curves in all the right places. Did I mention that it’s on sale right now? Paint your powder room in this Van Deusen Blue by Benjamin Moore and this mirror will really pop!

My next choice is this Paloma Round Mirror by Pottery Barn, which is also on sale! This mirror is perfect for a double vanity. Remember to hang the braided rope a little higher than normal so the mirror will be at eye-level. The length of these mirrors will give the appearance of higher ceilings, too. Sounds like a win-win to me! Keep it simple and paint your walls in White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Let the mirrors do all of the talking.

Lastly, I’ve chosen this gorgeous Ablenay Mirror by Uttermost. This one is a show-stopper. It’s simple, yet classic. Traditional, yet modern. It’s forged metal frame has been brushed with antique gold. I can’t promise that this mirror will make you look good, but I CAN promise that this mirror will make your bathroom look good! I’m pairing this mirror with White Dove by Benjamin Moore as well.

Don’t forget that that model homes are one of the best places to find mirrors. Most model homes are decorated with decor that won’t reveal much about the who might be living there. Model homes will have decor pieces such as paintings, mirrors, canvases, etc. I’ve found some of the best mirrors in model homes!

Until next time!
