Could this new bathroom trend be the next claw-foot tub?

Looking in the mirror can be an important part of a daily routine. And while we can all agree that beauty begins from the inside out, we certainly don’t mind any help we can get to look and feel our best on the regular. That’s why we’re always on the hunt for bathroom mirror ideas — you can consider it an investment in how you see yourself. For something you spend a healthy amount of time staring into every day (OK, sometimes unhealthy), you can afford to spend a little more time making sure you’ve chosen the perfect one. Confirmed: It’s worth it, and you’re worth it.

So how can you get the most out of your bathroom mirror? Looking and feeling your best involve a variety of factors, but it all starts when you wake up. If you’re anything like me, the first thing you see when you look in the mirror in the morning is probably not your favorite image of the day. So, for starters, a chic mirror can help your bathroom vanity provide a confidence boost to kick off the day. Need a Monday morning pep talk or maybe a moment of reflection (literal and figurative)? Regardless of your routine, the right bathroom mirror will frame the conversation in style. From minimal to ornate, round to rectangular, antique to modern and everything in between, the possibilities are endless to suit how you want to see yourself.


A round mirror is always a good idea, but it’s even better when mixed with geometric shapes. After all, the best bathroom mirrors are the ultimate testing ground for your own most Instagrammable angles.

Looking for something to admire beyond your own reflection? Try treating your bathroom mirror as wall art to strike a balance between fashion and function.


When it comes to bathroom mirrors, two is better than one — for the simple reason that multiple people can use them simultaneously. A double-mirror moment is ideal for couples who like to get ready together but still value a little bit of personal space.


When renovating almost any room in the home, it’s chic to antique. And bathrooms are no different. We love to mix and match pieces to create an old-meets-new vibe, and an antique bathroom mirror makes for a stunning statement piece. When you look in an antique mirror, it’s hard not to feel like a well-framed work of art.

Bright whites always look a little crisper with an element or two of contrast. An antique mirror does just the trick in a more rustic take on a white bathroom, giving the space texture and warmth while maintaining that fresh, clean feeling.


Sometimes the best approach for a bathroom design is to build personality into your morning and nighttime routine.

An oval provides a fresh twist on the round bathroom mirror trend. The slimmer curved shape leaves plenty of room for chic geometric sconces along with enough open space for shibori-inspired wallpaper to shine. Consider us sold on this shape.
