Searching for an extra-special finishing touch that’ll reflect well on you? We’ve picked out our top 10 mirrors for beautiful bathrooms.
Whether you’re the type of person who takes forever getting ready in the morning or someone who only briefly pauses to inspect your reflection, your bathroom mirror is a vital piece of kit.
Aside from the obvious uses, like applying makeup or checking to see if more grey hairs have appeared overnight, bathroom mirrors and mirror cabinets perform other, less discernible functions. If you have a relatively small bathroom, a mirror can help create the illusion of space, making it appear larger than it actually is. It’s an age-old trick which still works exceptionally well. Also, if your bathroom is a little on the dark and dingy side, a mirror can be used to enhance light, both natural and artificial.
Mirror cabinets, in particular, can come in very handy where storage space is at a premium. Providing extra shelf space, right where you need it, you can keep all those smaller items hidden from view and out of the reach of little hands. And, with an illuminated mirror, you get the benefit of additional task lighting when brushing your teeth or putting contact lenses in.
So, if you’re looking to add the perfect finishing touch to your bathroom or simply searching for an upgrade to your existing space, take a long, lingering look at our hand-picked selection.
1. Rockford rustic window mirror by Accents
If a mirror is a window into your soul, this on-trend design takes things quite literally. The perfect choice for contemporary spaces, I absolutely adore the look and feel of this statement mirror, with its weathered, almost rustic appearance. It’s a style I’d term “urban chic” and follows recent interior design trends like soft industrial.
With a chic rustic metal surround and frame detail, the Rockford mirror will make a stylish addition to your bathroom
Measuring a generous 910mm tall by 760mm wide and designed in the UK, this mirror is ideal for windowless bathrooms, creating the illusion of an exterior view.
As I mentioned in my recent article on bathroom trends, arches are a popular design feature currently and, by adding a simple mirror, there’s no need to drastically alter your room layout.
2. Wyatt LED illuminated mirror by Mode Bathrooms
Steamy mirrors can be a pain in the neck, especially when you step straight out of the bath and shower. In many cases, impatience kicks in and we end up with a smeared and smudged pane of glass which puts us in a less than favourable light.
If this is something you’d love to see the back of, it’s time to swap your current mirror for one with a demister. The Wyatt LED illuminated mirror from Mode Bathrooms is just such a convenient model.
Cool and contemporary. The Wyatt LED mirror comes complete with convenient demister

How’s this for a great “all-rounder”? Joking aside, with a floating black frame design and illuminated rim, the Vignelli is one of my absolute favourite mirrors. Designed to create an atmospheric glow, it also comes with a demister for steam-free use.
