Large Bathroom Mirrors, like Huge Mirrors
Some bathroom mirrors extend far from the bathroom vanity or from the bathroom sink. These mirrors are bigger and definitely better!
You might be wondering how a large bathroom mirror can give your bathroom a facelift. Two words: bigger and brighter. A mirror makes a room look bigger by adding depth. A large mirror increases the brightness of your bathroom because it reflects light. The more light that it’s refracting and reflecting, the more illuminating your bathroom will be.
Found in posh bathrooms of hotels, stylish homes, and vacation homes, large full-length mirrors will never be out of style. Huge bathroom mirror ideas are perfect for dressing up or simply admiring how you look after a shower.
And of course, don’t forget that mirrors make small spaces appear larger and this idea is a worthwhile bathroom upgrade.

Tips for Choosing a Bathroom Mirror
1. Choose a Shape:
Mirrors come in just about all shapes. Rectangle (of course), square, oval, and circle. You can also find a place that will customize a mirror shape for you. (This will probably cost more than just picking one up at the store.) Just keep the feel of your bathroom in mind.
- Mirrors with sides and angles add definition.
- Mirrors that are rounded soften spaces.
2. Choose a Frame:
There is the eternal, mirror-related question: framed or frameless?
- Framed mirrors are those surrounded by a frame that covers the mirror’s edge. It can be made of wood, metal, plastic, ceramic, or resin. Framed mirrors come in just about any style and décor you can imagine.
- Frameless mirrors have no frame, meaning that you see the mirror’s edge. Some edges are flat, some are beveled.
Whether you choose a framed mirror or a frameless mirror is really a matter of taste.
- If your walls are one solid color, they could handle a mirror with a frame that coordinates with your bathroom’s décor and color scheme.
- If your bathroom walls are busier, like with a wallpaper or painted pattern. Then a frameless mirror will be a more balanced pairing. Consider your needs, and the set-up of your bathroom when choosing.
3. Choose a Set-up:
If your bathroom vanity has double sinks, it is often functional and fashionable to have two larger mirrors. One over each sink.
Whatever your bathroom décor, size, or set-up, you will be able to find a bathroom mirror (or mirrors) to fit your needs. They will add light, depth, function, and style to your space. The type of mirror you choose depends on what you’re trying to achieve aesthetically.
