When renovating or designing a new bathroom, there are many things to consider regarding the size of your mirror. How big should it be? What size will work with the space and make it feel comfortable for you? How can you get the most bang for your buck without wasting money on something too small or too large?
This article will help you with the basics of bathroom mirror sizing. It will also help you determine if your mirror is the size you think it is.
Bathroom Vanity Mirrors
Bathroom vanity mirrors are the most common type in a home or bathroom. They come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. The size of your mirror will depend on where it is placed and how much space you have available. A large mirror can be used over a vanity sink or above a wall lined with cabinets. It’s also great for making small bathrooms feel larger because it gives you more room to move around while getting ready in the morning. Here are the two types of vanity mirrors:
Single Vanity Mirrors
The suggested measurement of a single vanity mirror is 30-48 inches wide. This is the ideal size for a bathroom that has limited space. It’s also an appropriate size for most people to use at once, giving you enough room to see yourself while applying makeup or shaving.
Double Vanity Mirror
A double vanity bathroom mirror should be as wide as If your bathroyour basins or the width of your vanity. Ensure that the mirror size is enough to accommodate both users simultaneously.
Vanity Mirror Height
While they differ in width, they are usually the same, around 1m - 1.5m. The mirror should be placed at a height that allows you to see your entire face, including your shoulders and back.
A good rule of thumb is to measure the distance from your chin to the top of your head, then add another 12 inches. This will give you an idea of how high up you want to hang the mirror. If you have other items in your bathroom, such as cabinets or shelves above the sink, ensure they don’t obstruct this line of sight.
Other Common Types of Bathroom Mirrors
While vanity mirrors are the most common among others, some mirrors are also a great addition
to your room such as:
● Floor Mirrors: These are the largest types of mirrors and are usually placed on the floor. Their width is usually around 32 inches, and their height is approximately 68 inches.
● Wall Mirror: These are smaller mirrors that are placed on the walls. These can be used as a part of your decor and come in different sizes, shapes, and styles.
● Magnifying Makeup Mirror: These small mirrors are usually placed near your vanity. They help you see your face clearly, and in a magnified form so you can do your makeup easily. This mirror is usually not bigger than 12 inches in diameter.
