REFRESH YOUR BATHROOM WITH A ROUND MIRROR
1. Decide on a general placement for your mirror. Knowing where you want your mirror is the first step. This will help you take the correct measurements of your space and accurately consider aesthetic questions before going into the store. Most bathroom mirrors are placed above the sink. It’s not a requirement, although hanging your mirror elsewhere, such as to the side or behind your vanity and sink, might take some getting used to.
2. Measure your vanity or sink. The width of the vanity will determine the width of your mirror. Your mirror can be as wide as your vanity or smaller, but is usually not larger than your vanity. A typical rule of thumb is to keep your mirror at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) smaller on both sides than the width of the vanity.
If you have or are planning to install lights alongside the mirror, factor their width into your measurements. If you are installing a round mirror, you don’t need to worry as much about matching the width of your vanity.
If you have two sinks, consider installing a mirror above each sink instead of just one big mirror above both sinks. This will give the space a more designer look.
3. Install sconces alongside the mirror or lights above it for a bathroom with no window. Make sure the lighting source will provide enough light to see your reflection clearly but won’t create a glare on the mirror. Take care not to place the sconces too high or too low. Line them up with the center of the mirror.
4. Place the mirror a few inches (several cm) above the sink to lessen backsplash. If your sink is prone to splashing water out, place your mirror high enough above the vanity so that it won’t get hit. Remember to factor this into your measurements for the height of your mirror.
