Mirrors | Choosing the Best Mirror for your Master Bedroom or Bath

Mirrors are a great addition to any room. They reflect light around any space and add functionality along with design. But choosing the best mirror for your master bedroom and bath can be difficult if you do not have an idea of what you're looking for.

To get started, examine your space and determine what your room needs. Is your space crowded or cramped? Is your room lacking a unique design element?

If you have a small space, or it feels crowded, a single large mirror will enlarge the space. A floor to ceiling mirror display will create an illusion of height and elongate the look of your room. In addition, a single statement piece also works great in a room that already has multiple design themes going on -- it will open up the space and avoid looking cluttered.

On the other hand, if your room seems to lack design and needs a unique feature piece, a display of layered mirrors can create aesthetic appeal in replacement of traditional art. This is a great do-it-yourself project and you can give it your own personal touch. Garage sales and antique shows are great places to find unique pieces that can be refurbished. Like the mirror display featured below, different styles and shapes create an eye-catching, reflective creation. If you are having a hard time finding the right mirror, do not worry. You can turn any picture frame into a stunning mirror. Many people don't realize that a mirror is simply a piece of glass with a reflective layer adhered to the back. You can find "Looking Glass" paint at most craft or hardware stores. After spraying the reflective paint to the back of your frame's glass piece, you now have a striking one-of-a-kind piece.

For your bathroom, functionality is typically the most important task at hand. Do you lack ample counter space? If so, a mirror with a built-in cabinet is a great option for all your toiletries. If not, choose a mirror that streamlines with your bathroom design already. And remember, most people clean their bathroom mirrors more often than others-- choosing an intricate framed piece may become a pain to clean in the future.

Ultimately, you can never go wrong with adding mirrors to a space. They add depth, aesthetic design, and functionality. We hope now you have an idea for your next mirror installation project.
