Join me in my hunt for twin bathroom vanity mirrors.  Shortly we will be renovating our ensuite.  We are very happy with the current ensuite, it’s just that there are some waterproofing issues, so we have to pull the entire ensuite out and put it back together again.  Expensive exercise, but it has to be done.  So I can see some difference for the money, other than the tiles, I thought I’d change the vanity mirrors.

Here’s what I currently have.  They are square Art Deco mirrors from Freedom Furniture.

I want to keep 2 separate mirrors, but want them slightly narrower so I can install wall sconces either side.  First thing I do when I’m looking for something new for my home is head to Pinterest or Instagram for inspiration.

Vanity Mirror Specifications

The next thing I do is try to work out my specifications.  This makes shopping for the mirrors easier:

  • Orientation – I need a portrait orientation – tall and narrow
  • Size – so we can install wall lights, we will be removing the belt rail above and building the wall out to accommodate the electrical wiring, so the mirror can be taller than the 75cm distance between the counter top and belt rail, maybe up to 90-100cm tall.  The mirror width should be the width of the sink or slightly wider, so 50-70cm.
  • Shape – basically rectangle in shape, but can be oval, hexagonal or have a decorative top
  • Budget – Hmmm, reasonable as I have to buy 2 of them.

With this in mind, I can start searching for mirrors.

Some of these mirrors are not the right size, and some probably don’t fit the budget.  I must admit I am partial to the beaded ones.  Which one do you like?

I have pinned more mirrors to our Mirrors & Frames Pinterest board.
