Vanity mirrors can be anything from something super simple to the most ornate; it really depends on what kind of look you’re going for. So what kind of vanity mirrors are out there? You’d be surprised at how many you have to choose from. Here are some of the latest trends when it comes to vanity mirrors in today’s modern age.
The Tall And Skinny
A tall vanity mirror, when placed in the right place, can add a lot of light to the room in addition to giving you more viewing of yourself and the room. It can actually make your room feel a little taller and larger. It’s a good idea to move it around and play with the proportions to see where the best place to put your vanity mirror is. The small width of the mirror means that it won’t take up your entire wall.
It’s one thing to attach a vanity mirror to your wall, but why not go for a flare for the dramatic by suspending it from your ceiling? This requires a lot more man power to attach the hardware necessary to suspend your mirror from the ceiling, but the look could be well worth it. Hanging your vanity in front of your window can provide you with some great lighting opportunities, just as long as the mirror isn’t larger than the window itself.
The Large And Round
The large, round vanity is considered one of the most classic styles of vanity mirrors. It’s not new, but it’s a timeless look that gives the appearance of a perfect french window. However, the size of the round mirror is very important. Too small, and you end up cutting off some of your face; too large, and you have to worry about how much space on your wall it’s taking up. Examine a few and see what would be the best size for you and the space your vanity mirror will be occupying.
The Circle 2.0
This is more than just the round vanity mirror; this is adding some extra dimension and shapes to it through other additions. The circle can be broken up with a small shelf, creating a geometric shape that can be quite modern and stylish. Or pair two small circular mirrors together to add even more light and space to the room; then you won’t have to worry about your face getting cut off in your reflection.
Finding the right vanity mirror should be right for your style and aesthetic, and you shouldn’t choose solely based on whatever the trend is at the moment. You could pick the most popular style, but if it doesn’t fit with the rest of the decor in your bathroom, then it’s going to stick out like a sore thumb. It doesn’t hurt to do a little research or visit a dealer in vanity mirrors to see what is available so that you can see for yourself what’s out there and what would be the best match for you.
