How to Choose the Perfect Bathroom Mirror

A mirror is a bathroom essential, but with so many options to choose from it can be difficult to decide which is the right mirror for your suite. Is it Framed?, Beveled?, Non Bevelled, Ledge or Cabinet it can be a hard choice when picking during your next bathroom renovation.

A bathroom mirror should add convenience to your lifestyle, and hopefully, this guide will give you some inspiration in choosing the right mirror for you.


A cabinet mirror or a vanity unit with an incorporated mirror is ideal if you struggle for storage in your bathroom.

Multi-purpose furniture is a fantastic way to maximize your available storage space, however, it is important to make sure you have enough room for a cabinet before you purchase one, as a bulky wall hung cupboard could interfere with nearby doors if you don’t account for space.

Another thing to take into account is what you will be storing in your mirrored cabinet, and making sure any medications or cleaning substances are out of reach of children.



Like this Ledge mirror above used in a bathroom renovation in Fremantle, it create a space for storing items and a practical mirror

Extension or Swing Arm

An extendable swing arm mirror is ideal if you need a bathroom mirror for close-up use but lack space. It extends out on a hinged arm and pivots for ease of use.


A frame can make or break how a mirror fits in with the rest of your suite. Do you want a grand ornate design or something more simple and minimalistic? A metal or wooden material? Are you going to buy a mirror that already comes with a frame or will you choose them separately?

Frameless or Bevelled

A frameless mirror will take up less room than a framed one, and it is possible to find ones to suit a modern or traditional suite. They don’t have to look boring or plain either – many frameless mirrors have bevelled edges which can look just as sophisticated as a simple frame. As you can see above and below used in bathroom renovations in Lesmurdie and Leeming the bevel creates a subtle feature

Captain’s Mirror


A Captain’s Mirror is traditionally a round mirror hung on a piece of rope, and will look most at home in a nautically-themed suite. It really comes down to the design.

There are much more options when it comes to mirroring especially in the high tech range of lighting but i thought it was best, not overwhelm you. Bathroom renovations in Perth especially are really starting to embrace the new European design so it’s sometimes best to go away grom what you used to and take a risk.

It’s important to note that all our advice is general in nature and all bathrooms are unique so always speak to your local qualified tradesman for the best advice. If you are looking for a bathroom renovation quote and live in Perth, Western Australia just email us at
