What to consider when installing a round bathroom mirror

Looking for a way to spruce up your bathroom and give it an edge over the typical washroom look? Installing acircular mirror is a great way to change things up and provide some uniqueness to your space. 

Rather than the typical rectangular bath mirrors, a circular mirror adds some dimension to your area, contrasting against the sharp edges of your vanity and tying in a circular motif with your basin. If you’re looking for a way to differentiate your space from the typical traditional look, installing a round bathroom mirror is one way of doing so.

Renovating your bathroom can be a daunting task, as there are so many decisions to make. From choosing your tiles to deciding what kind of bathtub you want, there are multiple things to consider. It’s important that you take the time to think about what you want as once the bathroom is finished, it will be a pain to change any fixtures or fittings you have installed.

One good practice is to create a vision of your perfect bathroom – you can do this by making a mood board or book marking photos for inspiration, so that you have some idea of the items that you want in your space.

This will generally inform you on the kind of style you want to decorate in. Whether this is rustic, minimalist, or bohemian – there are multiple styles so it’s up to your personal preference. Choosing a style will help with the cohesiveness of your space, but if you aren’t concerned with cohesiveness and want to experiment with an eclectic mix of items, that’s up to you too!

In the end, it’s all about making a space that you and your family are happy with – that is functional, durable, and fits your aesthetic. No matter what style you choose, however, a round bathroom mirror is a great choice. Here are some things to consider when buying a circular mirror!

Size

A circular mirror will take up less space than a rectangular one of similar proportions, so if you’re low on wall space this is a great option for you. The size that you choose to go with largely depends on the amount of wall space available and the size of its neighbouring fittings.

Having an oversized circular mirror above a relatively smaller vanity would be an odd look, and vice versa. Thus, it is a good idea to measure out the items you will be installing to ensure that things will not look out of place.

Try envisioning everything you’ve bought or need to buy within the space that you are buying it for. Drawing up a sketch of the room might work for you, or you might choose to measure and pinpoint where your items will be installed inside the room. It doesn’t matter what your method is, as long as it helps you to understand how the space will look when it’s fully furnished.

Colour

The colour of your round bathroom mirror is an important consideration that contributes to the aesthetic of your space. Would you prefer it to be frameless? This is a great option if you’re aiming for that minimalist look with clean lines, where less is more.

But maybe you’re wanting something more modern or rustic. Adding a frame can really help to change the look of your area. If you’re wanting a rustic look, you could choose a silver, brushed nickel, or gold frame to play into the metal elements.

Such metal colours can also work if you want a vintage or bohemian look, or even mid-century modern. It also depends on the rest of the décor in the space, and whether your chosen frame colour will fit in amongst your other items.

Cost

Let’s face it: most of us have a budget when doing bathroom renovations, and no matter how much we might want to deviate from it, sticking within your budget is essential to ensure that you don’t end up with bills that you can’t pay.

Planning out your budget before and during shopping, by keeping track of all the costs you are accumulating, is a good idea. Maybe consider keeping a spreadsheet for all the expenses you will incur in the renovation process and update it regularly so that you are up to date with how much money you have spent and how much more you can spare.

Shopping for bargains is a great way to get around budget constraints. Keep an eye out for any sales that might be occurring around the time of your renovation. Put your name on mailing lists to get the latest updates on when items go on sale.

Shop online and in-store. By looking online, you substantially increase the scope of your search. Many e-commerce websites offer better deals than traditional retailers.

Pivot 

Have you ever struggled with getting the right positioning with your circular mirror? Maybe your household is made of people of varying heights and thus it is hard to decide where the reflective surface should be placed.

With a pivot circular mirror, you’ll be able to move around the positioning of the reflective surface to suit your needs. Not only that, the pivot detail adds a sense of uniqueness around your round bathroom mirror, as the hardware can add to the aesthetic of your space.

A pivot circular mirror also fits well if you want a rustic, vintage, or traditional looking space. Even if you don’t, the practicality of the feature is a winner. Not only that, but it is quite rare for people to have a pivot round bathroom mirror, so you’ll be setting yourself aside from the crowd.

There are many considerations to make when choosing your circular mirror. There are so many options for bath mirrors that you might feel overwhelmed with choice and not know where to start. Hopefully this article has shed some light on what to look for in the purchasing process.
