Update Your Bathroom Just By Changing the Mirror

by Elias Deukmajian | Bathroom Remodel

If you’re looking to upgrade your current bathroom but aren’t sure quite where to start, you might consider something simple. Instead of planning a top-to-bottom remodel immediately, consider your bathroom mirror.

While it may not seem like it, your bathroom mirror is one of the central pieces of your bathroom. Though it doesn’t have the same essential functionality as the shower or sink, it plays an important aesthetic role of bringing your bathroom together. Furthermore, it provides you with a place to greet yourself in the morning, wish yourself a good sleep before bed, and do your makeup or your hair before you leave the house.

Quick Ways to Change Your Bathroom Mirror Design

This central hub of the bathroom may not feel like it needs much, but redoing the design of your mirror or placement can make or break the aura of your bathroom. Below are some ideas on how to change it up:

Frame Your Mirror

The first thing to consider in your mirror redesign is whether or not you want a framed mirror. If you have a flat mirror on the wall with no frame, consider buying or building a frame that fits the mirror you currently have. Depending on your frame design and materials, you can completely recharge your bathroom’s energy.

Maybe you want a rustic, wooden feel, or a sleek metal design. Perhaps engravings or etching the mirror itself is in order. For a truly unique feel, you can even purchase colored tiles to frame the wall around your mirror, thereby framing your mirror without putting a frame on your mirror.

Whatever you choose, this small touch can do wonders for the overall design and feel of your bathroom.

Paint the Wall Behind Your Mirror

This is another simple change that can have big impacts. Whether you want to paint one wall or your whole bathroom, changing up the color scheme behind your mirror is a relatively quick way to see a big change, quickly.

Alternatively, depending on the layout of your bathroom, you may decide to paint just the patch behind and around your mirror to bring the attention to the focus of your new favorite room.

If you don’t want to paint the wall, you can also consider adding a “frame” of wallpaper to the wall around your mirror. This small, subtle change can make a big difference to the overall feel of your mirror – and let you play with colors and ideas in the process.

Change Your Lighting

Lighting is an essential component of any room in your house, and the bathroom isn’t the exception, it’s the rule. If you want to redesign your mirror, consider instead redesigning the lighting around your mirror.

You can add lights on top, or switch to vanity lighting on either side. Perhaps you’d like to look into a backlit mirror. Maybe, what your bathroom needs is to remove lights from the mirror altogether. There are so many possibilities – be sure to examine each in due course.

Change the Shape of Your Mirror

This one involves buying a new mirror entirely, but if you’re just not satisfied with the outcome or idea of the options above, it may be the way to go. If you have a square mirror, consider an oval to really change things up. If you have an oval already, perhaps it’s time to bring some sharp corners and straight lines to your bathroom.

For a circular mirror, consider a patterned frame or glass arrangement, where the frame covers pieces of the glass to create shapes and designs.
