Scale is the key to selecting the best bathroom mirror for your space. Before investing in a new mirror (or two!), break out your measuring tape and jot down the dimensions within your space, including the width of your bathroom vanity, the height of your wall from floor to ceiling, and the distance between your vanity countertop and ceiling.

You want your bathroom mirror centered on the wall above the vanity for a proportional and functional design. Our advice? Make your bathroom vanity your guidepost when choosing the optimal size bathroom mirror for your space. A solid rule for selecting the best bathroom mirror is to choose a mirror that is 1-2 inches narrower than the width of your vanity cabinet below. This approach yields visual balance within your design by allowing the bathroom vanity to anchor the space.

Standard bathroom mirror heights range from 28-34 inches tall. A bathroom mirror should hang between 5 and 10 inches above the highest point of your sink, so keep that in mind when choosing your mirror height. Standard bathroom mirror heights range from 28-34 inches tall. Working with generous ceiling height and sconce lighting? Accentuate your architecture with a taller mirror. And, if you’re designing with a horizontal overhead vanity light, opt for a shorter bathroom mirror to accommodate.

Bathroom mirrors are a natural focal point for a design and one of the easiest ways to lean into your desired aesthetic. Select a bathroom mirror with the silhouette, finish and materials that speak to your design style. A streamlined LED mirror with minimal framing is a seamless addition to a contemporary bathroom, while a caramel-stained wood-framed mirror is ideal for a rustic or bohemian setting. If you’re unsure what style best suits your taste, keep it classic with a polished nickel, chrome or unlacquered brass framed mirror that will withstand the test of time.


The price of bathroom mirrors varies, ranging from $35 to $800 or more, depending on the mirror size, material quality and unique features. Bathroom mirrors with damp-rated integrated LED lights, like the Robern Rectangular Vitality LED mirror from Pottery Barn, are pricier than wood-framed decorative designs like the Hamzah rectangular wall mirror from Wayfair. Storage-clad medicine cabinets are pricier bathroom mirror options due to their dual function.

Bathroom With Single Sink Vanity and Circle Mirror

This modern bathroom features an updated take on black and white design with a sleek white marble vanity and black geometric tile. A brassy gold faucet adds extra glam to the small space.




Bathroom mirror materials are vast and varied, including glass, acrylic, metal and wood. Aluminum mirrors, like the Vintage Frameless Round Pivot Mirror from Pottery Barn, are sought-after because the metal is naturally water-resistant, making it an ideal option for damp spaces. Decorative wood frames are a striking option to elevate a design but are less hardwearing than their metal counterparts in high-humidity spaces. Our tip? Look for a wood-framed mirror designed to withstand moisture, like the Midcentury Medicine Cabinet from West Elm, or reserve the wood-framed mirror for your powder room.

How to Install a Bathroom Mirror

Bathroom mirror installation varies depending on the style of mirror, but most mirrors are easy to install yourself in a few hours (or less!). Some bathroom mirrors, such as the pivot-style options above, feature brackets and mounting hardware that you install directly into the studs behind your wall for secure placement. Decorative framed bathroom mirrors often feature wired backs, like that of a picture frame, meant to hang on hooks or nails installed into the studs on your wall. Another mode of bathroom mirror installation is wall adhesive. This option is usually reserved for frameless mirrors and the installation instructions vary based on the adhesive brand.
