We’ve spoken before on the complexities of bathroom mirror buying and have even provided a guide to help out with the more fiddly elements. However, we haven’t really gotten down to brass tacks on the best styles for the modern bathroom.
Staying fashion-forward with bathrooms has become an increasingly difficult task as of late. For a while, it seemed as though bathrooms were stuck in a specific moment in time compared to the evolving tastes of the more comprehensive home décor. Fast forward to the present, and you’ll find that bathrooms have been making up for lost time, with a vast array of choices and styles being reintroduced into bathroom décor.
Long gone are the days when a simple white tiles bathroom and marble benchtop would get you by. Instead, the bathroom has become one of the more complicated spaces to bring together from a style standpoint. Instead, choices are everywhere, from fixture colors, countertops, bath and basin styles to, of course, mirrors.
Bathroom mirrors have unsurprisingly moved on from the minimalist, frameless designs of years past, with all manner of styles and shapes now making their way back into the fold.
In this blog, we’re going to go through 3 particular designs that we think will make sure your bathroom never goes out of style.
First things first, there’s still a lot to be said for the humble metal framed mirror. Mid-century designs are kind of timeless despite their name, so it’s easy to default to them as a matter of course.
Ironically, while everyone else may be rushing to upgrade their bathroom with wild new ideas, sometimes staying reserved in your approach can be the best way forward. Softer edges and sleek metal frames will always get good results - and that’s just what mid-century design is all about.
Make it Irregular
The fun part of what seems like a golden age in bathroom design is that there aren’t any rules to live by when choosing your favorite style. That carries on to mirrors in a big way, with decorators and interior designers being allowed to essentially make anything work in an attempt to show how far any single trend can be taken.
That’s why we’ve got to recommend an irregular-shaped mirror. If everything is up for debate, why not go for a statement and put something in your home that will change up expectations completely?
Keep it Natural
For a long time, it felt like the only way to have your bathroom mirror was with a metal frame or no frame at all.
Thankfully, that isn’t the case anymore, and wood-framed mirrors are making a triumphant return to the bathroom - and with good reason too. For many, the bathroom is going to get steamy from time to time, there’s a lot of hot water running, and ventilation isn’t always ideal; it’s the reason why bathroom design stayed the same for so long in the first place. But that doesn’t have to be the reality anymore, with newer building technology allowing extraction fans to be more commonplace than ever before and allowing more natural materials to worm their way back.
So, let your bathroom breathe and think about using some natural beauty to boost your bathroom style for the better.
