How to Shop for Bathroom Mirrors

Whether you're furnishing a new bathroom or redecorating your existing one, bathroom mirrors can make a big difference in the look and functionality of the room. Pottery Barn has a wide selection of mirrors for the bathroom in an array of sizes and styles.

Selecting a Bathroom Mirror

The right mirror can enhance the look of the bathroom. Here are some considerations when choosing a mirror for your bathroom:

  • Bathroom vanity mirrors are a good choice if you want a versatile mirror for grooming and applying makeup. Many of the vanity mirrors at Pottery Barn can either be hung on the wall or displayed on the counter or table.
  • Traditional wall mirrors come in a variety of shapes, including round, square and rectangular. Some have a vintage look, while others are more modern. They can be displayed solo or in pairs for a contemporary look.
  • If you have a lot of wall space to fill, consider a double wide mirror. These mirrors can span up to 72 inches in width and are crafted with sturdy materials, such as MDF.
  • Another option is a lit mirror. The selection contains wall-mount and tabletop mirrors with lighting for excellent visibility when getting ready. These bathroom mirrors come in various shapes, such as round and rectangular.
  • Medicine cabinet mirrors and mirrors with shelving are good if you need more storage in your bathroom. Most mirrors of this type are rectangular and offer ample space for stashing toiletries and other small items.
  • Floor mirrors work well for spacious bathrooms. Pottery Barn has floor mirrors in a variety of styles; frame options include metal and wood.

Other Bathroom Essentials

While you're shopping for bathroom mirrors, you might also want to check out other items for the room. If you want to give the room a quick, easy makeover, all you need is a new bath rug and some coordinating towels. Pottery Barn also has an array of shower curtains, which can also go a long way towards giving your bathroom a fresh new style.

Bathroom mirrors can accentuate the other furnishings in the room. For example, a grouping of candles on the sink in front of the mirror has a reflective effect that's romantic and elegant. Even without the candles, a high-quality mirror is an item that instantly enhances the bathroom. Browse the selection at Pottery Barn to find the mirror that's right for you.
