Top Bathroom Mirror Trends

New bathroom vanities are an essential part of a full bathroom remodel in Seattle. The central focus point and most important component of a bathroom vanity is the mirror. Older bathroom designs usually include only a single rectangular mirror directly over a sink, but contemporary bathroom designs can include updated mirror configurations.

There are many ways to utilize mirror trends to make your bathroom look contemporary, regardless of size. You can bring more illumination to the bathroom by installing a bathroom vanity with lights all around the mirror. Backlit mirrors create a nice focal point, especially when installed floating in front of a textured wall. Lastly, adding a thick, decorative molding to oversized mirrors will make them elegant and dramatic focal points.

For bathrooms with tall ceilings, elongated mirrors above the sinks claim the expansive space, draw your eyes up, and add visual interest, especially when juxtaposed with similarly scaled sconces on either side of the mirror.

If you have a small bathroom with limited storage space, you may wish to hide your bathroom wall cabinets behind the mirror. If your bathroom includes very square tile designs and square shower stall, you might wish to install a round or oval mirror for more visual interest. Or, if your bathroom is small, you can make it feel larger by installing a large mirror that covers most of the wall.

On the other hand, if your bathroom is large enough to contain side-by-side sinks, you may wish to make it feel less cavernous by installing a small mirror over each sink. Large bathrooms also have the space to incorporate a contemporary, double-sided vanity/island with a tall, double-sided floating mirror above the sink.
