Mirrors can work wonders in any room, especially your bathroom. Sure, practicality should always be top of mind, but the very best bathroom mirrors also serve as decorative statements, turning even the simplest of spaces into a stylish haven. Look at these bathroom mirror ideas, for example: Many of the following designs tap into your bathroom’s existing aesthetic (modern, traditional or rustic) while others bring a whole new personality. All the while, these mirrors — some framed, others frameless — bounce the natural and overhead light, ultimately making it feel even more spacious than it really is.
While some of these mirror styles are better suited for small bathrooms, all of them can be tweaked to fit any size space, whether you’re looking for an easy way to dress up your tiny powder room or something that’ll fill up the wall above your double-sink vanity. Mirrors may be the main focus here, but a lot of these designs will also give you plenty of ideas of how to elevate your bathroom with different paint colors, tile figurations and light fixtures (in case you’re in the market for a makeover).

Classic Circle Mirror
Circle mirrors are as classic and chic as it gets. Place it in the center of your vanity, so you can hang sconces on both sides for an even glow.
Double Gold Mirrors
Glossy gold mirrors bring the drama. All types of polished frames will have the same effect — copper, silver, brushed bronze or whatever else suits your space.
Sprawling Horizontal Mirror
Go for the unexpected and attach understated glass sconces to both ends of a framed mirror. Select a frame that’s identical (or as close to it) to the wall color to make a quaint space appear larger.
Place a gilded antler mirror on herringbone tile to make a striking statement. Deck out the space with towel rings, light fixtures and hardware, all brushed in gold.
Since frames take up extra space, a frameless option is a great way to make the most of whatever free wall space you do have. Plus, the minimalistic style works for just about any aesthetic: modern, traditional, farmhouse-inspired and so on.
Infuse character into your bathroom’s design by pairing an asymmetrical mirror with a terrazzo vanity top.
Mirror With Navy Trim
Painting the mirror’s frame in the same color as the molding, vanity and door elevates the space. Keep the decorative accents — the light fixtures, especially — in a contrasting hue for added interest.

For a cohesive look, match your mirror’s frame to the hardware, faucet and light fixture in your bathroom.
Attach an oversized mirror at a downward slant, so you can see your reflection in full. Balance it out with metal sconces on both sides.
Sometimes, simple is best — especially when your space is loaded with varying textures and prints. In this pattern-packed powder room, an understated gold mirror adds a touch of elegance, offsetting the florals and geometric patterns.
Leaning Floor-Length Mirror
Think beyond your vanity: Rest a floor-length mirror against a free wall to bounce the light, resulting in a brighter, airier feel.
Oval Double Sink Mirrors
Place two smaller mirrors right above a double-sink vanity for a sense of symmetry.
Wall of Mirrors
Gather a bunch of antique mirrors to create an eye-catching gallery wall. Make sure that the one directly above the sink is big enough — rectangles and ovals work best — to see your face in its entirety.
Avoid blocking the windows behind the vanity by suspending wooden mirrors from the ceiling with a rope and pulley system.
Embrace the bathroom’s chic style with a rectangular mirror, accented with distressed pewter borders. Frame it with sconces in a similar finish.
To take a traditional bathroom back in time, dress it with an assortment of vintage-style hand, vanity and mounted mirrors.
Elegant Frameless Mirrors
If you’re working with a smaller space, trick the eye by filling a blank wall with mirrors. Go with mirrors in different (but complementary) shapes and sizes, then attach shelves down below to maximize storage space.
Wood Statement Mirror
Choose a mirror with a distressed walnut wood border to lean into the bathroom’s rustic vibe. Incorporate different wood tones throughout the space — a whitewashed vanity, for example — to make it more casual.
Functional Mirror Combo
Pull double duty by mounting a magnifying mirror next to a mirrored medicine cabinet. That way, you have options — you can see your face at a comfortable distance, up close or extremely zoomed in.
Illuminate your space with a sleek circle mirror, surrounded by an LED light border. Pick one that radiates a gentle glow, so it complements your bathroom’s sense of calm.
