The finishing touches are what make a bathroom, so choosing the right fixtures and fittings is vital to the overall look. A well-placed bathroom mirror will add style and class to the room, open up the space you have and offer extra functionality, too. Whether you're an interior designer making over a bathroom or a DIY enthusiast carrying out home improvements, choosing the right bathroom mirror is essential to completing any bathroom theme.

Your bathroom is a very important room in your house. It's the place where you get ready, and where you relax and unwind at the end of a long day. You'll spend time in there every day, so it makes sense to ensure that the room meets your needs, looks good and is a great place to be.

Adding a Mirror to your Bathroom

Whether you're working with an open bathroom or a smaller room, placing the  mirror in the right place will help you accentuate the space available. Mirrors reflect light and create the illusion of a bigger room, so you can make the smallest bathroom look bright and airy. You can also choose a mirror with a range of features to make getting ready easy, fun and enjoyable.

There's lots of styles and designs available. If you've got bright, bold colours in your bathroom, offset them with funky coloured glass mosaics and patterns. For a muted, calm feel in neutral rooms, frosted glass edgings and sand blasted designs give your  mirror a unique and luxurious look. Want to create a quirky and different look? Mirror tiles give you the flexibility to create your own designs and shapes, and are perfect for setting up large mirrored surfaces in small rooms.

Illuminate your Bathroom with a Backlit Mirror

A great way to bring light into the bathroom, and to get a clearer reflection from your mirror, is to choose a backlit, fluorescent, LED unit. Not only does the lighting look fantastic, but you'll be well lit when you look in the mirror – perfect for close shaving, applying make-up and doing your hair. Light-up mirrors are also ideal for commercial bathrooms in restaurants, clubs and bars. The illuminated effect is stylish and modern, and creates a touch of class and elegance in any room.

Up Close and Personal with Magnifying Mirrors

Magnifying mirrors are the ideal tool for close-up personal grooming such as shaving or hair styling, as they give you a much clearer look at your reflection. They are also extremely useful for designers and home improvement enthusiasts looking to make the most of a bathroom's available space. A magnifying mirror can make a large room look cosier and more intimate, or can project light across a small, dark room to create the illusion of space. You can produce some very unique looks with careful placement of magnifying mirrors.
