When it comes to remodeling the perfect bathroom, the right mirror type can go a long way. After all, if you’re going to be looking at it every day then it’s probably worth invest
ing in, right? And while mirrored medicine cabinets offer a nice, multifunctional design, there are so many more styles out there to consider. Here’s a quick look into the various types of bathroom mirrors.
Mirrored Medicine Cabinets – Chances you’ve had or seen one of these mirrors. They’re the most common bathroom basic, combing storage space with a reflective surface. Whether you’re using one that’s set into the wall or mounted flush against it, mirrored medicine cabinets can provide a classic look.
Framed Mirrors – Another one of the most basic mirror styles, these mirrors hang flush against the wall with no bells or whistles. They come in a wide variety of styles, from modern to traditional, plain to ornate, and small to large.
Ledge Mirrors – They’re called ledge mirrors because they feature built-in ledges where you can keep your bathroom products. If you’re a minimalist who likes to keep everything well edited and in plain sight, this is the mirror type for you.
Frameless Mirrors – Rather than having a full frame, these mirrors float against the wall with a finished buffed edge. Frameless mirrors look great in contemporary bathrooms, and your hardware provider can cut the mirror to perfectly match the size of your wall.
Pivot Mirrors – Pivot mirrors are mounted to the wall on two hinges, allowing them to tilt up and down. The advantage here is that they’re much more flexible and have a traditional appeal. They fit well in classic, subway-tiled bathrooms.
Extension, Swing-Arm Mirrors – Extending from the wall on an accordion or swing-arm mount, these mirrors are perfect for someone that doesn’t have room for an over-sink mirror and is looking to save on space.
Lighted Mirrors – Built-in lighting around the frame of the mirror allows for some added illumination to your bathroom space, and are an excellent choice for contemporary designs.
Vanity Mirrors – Small, hinged mirrors mounted on a pedestal or atop a tabletop. They’re often double-sided with a magnifying mirror on one face, making them ideal for applying makeup.
Captain’s Mirrors – You don’t see these mirror types too often due to their high price tag. They involve a large rounded mirror hung from a strap, and boasts an incredibly striking piece. A Captain’s Mirror offers a unique blend of traditional and modern style.
