Whether you are remodeling your old bathroom or constructing a new one, these beautiful bathroom mirror ideas are fun, stylish and creative.
Why settle for a plain, unflattering bathroom mirror with a boring frame when you can have a much more unique mirror instead? So without further ado, here are some of the top ideas when it comes to jazzing up your bathroom mirror.
Mosaic Mirror Frames
Say no to the usual metal frame for your bathroom mirror and say yes to mirror mosaics as your mirror frame. This is a great idea for a bathroom mirror or a vanity mirror.
Small bits of glass placed creatively along the sides of your bath mirror will create a stylish and creative look. Add modern lighting and you can make this area of your bathroom easily stand out.
Glass or mirror mosaic pieces will also illuminate your vanity and make your mirror a great conversation piece too.
You can choose from the usual rectangular or large square mirror. Or you can choose an irregularly shaped mirror with a glass or mirror mosaic frame.

Tile Backsplash Embedded Mirror
You can create a tile backsplash with your bathroom mirror embedded in it. This is a really cool way to improve the appearance of your boring plain rectangular mirror and transform it into a beautiful vanity piece.
Take 1×1 ceramic tiles with a totally contrasting color from your bathroom tiles or wall color to create a backsplash frame.
You may choose one color or two or more depending on your design and your tastes. Create a mosaic pattern with your small ceramic tiles or you could even make use of larger tiles as well.
Here are some examples:
Antique Mirror Frames
An antique design frame would work well for a classic bathroom theme. A huge plain rectangular bathroom mirror can be framed with treated and varnished or painted carved hardwood creating a classic and seamless design.
Your frame could be as narrow as 1 ½ to 2 inches or make it 3 or more for a much larger frame size.
Your frame can also be any color. You can contrast the frame color to your bathroom tile color and design as well as your wall color or you may use any color combination you wish.
Your antique mirror frame design should complement your existing plumbing as well as lighting fixtures in your bathroom.

Instead of using track lighting or spot lighting to illuminate your vanity mirror, why not use creative lighting with your existing bathroom mirror?
A back-lit mirror replaces traditional lighting above the vanity mirror, because it provides lighting from behind the mirror. This creates a ghostly but futuristic effect in your bathroom.
To make one yourself, you can:
- Start with an extra-large rectangular bathroom mirror with an edgeless or frameless design.
- Then mount it using mounting hardware so it sits a few inches from the wall to create a floating or elevated look.
- Now place your a fluorescent or LED light behind it to create the cool effect.
This mirror idea is perfect when you have a large boring old mirror that needs to be reinvented.
Also instead of white fluorescent lighting, you can use other color tones such as light green, light blue, rose or lavender.
