3 Pair it Up

Create a look that’s twice as stunning by duplicating the mirror. This style is usually paired with double sinks, but multiple mirrors could be used over a long single-sink counter top as an alternative to one large mirror.

4 The Mirror Wall

Why stop at 2 mirrors when you can have a whole wall. Get different sizes and/or designs of mirrors and hang them in a gallery-wall-style arrangement.

Be sure to arrange the mirrors so that they complement instead of compete against one another. A good way to ensure that the mirrors are complementary is to choose frames of similar materials and/or colour.

5 String it up

While most mirrors are hung on the wall, suspending it from a visible rope or wire is a great way to add an element of interest and rusticity.

You can choose from a variety of materials to hang the mirror, such as thick ropes to create a nautical theme or wire for a more modern, industrial vibe. Just be sure that it’s secure and can withstand the weight of the mirror.

6 Light it Up

A backlight can give a glamorous update to a simple mirror. You can either buy mirrors with built-in lights or add them yourself.

Illuminated mirrors are perfect for applying makeup and taking bathroom selfies. They’re also great for bathrooms with little natural light. Just be sure to use soft lighting instead of fluorescent bulbs.

7 Supersize It

Extra-large mirrors aren’t just impressive, they also help to distribute light within a confined space. This works best if you have a large wall to play with. Alternatively, you can install mirrors on your cabinets to create the same affect.

Large mirrors don’t just work for bigger bathrooms. Try a relatively large mirror (not too supersized) in a small bathroom to create an illusion of a bigger bathroom.
