Selecting an original mirror for a bathroom, which at the same time perfectly matches its décor, can seem like quite a challenge. There are a few design tips which might be helpful when it comes to choosing both a mirror that matches the style of the bathroom, and also its positioning in the bathing area.

Bathroom mirrors are often associated with a perfectly round, rectangular or perhaps square panel, under which a cabinet for bathroom utensils may also be hidden.

4. What décor matches a bathroom round mirror?
A round mirror for the bathroom seems like a standard option, but it will also work perfectly as a part of a slightly less classic arrangement. It all depends on the size of a mirror you decide on. It is worth considering an extreme solution such as hanging both, a huge mirror in one space, which will be functional, and small round mirrors, which will work well as decorations. Such a combination is perfect for modern interiors.
In case of classic interiors, you may opt for standard-sized mirrors that will complement the décor. If, on the other hand, you want to add some extra flair to the room, then a selection of rounded mirrors with a custom frame, such as a three-dimensional one will work.
