3 Key Points to Consider

1. Functionality (besides checking yourself out)
When choosing a wall-mounted mirror for your bathroom, the first thing you need to consider is whether you need something that offers extra storage (such as a medicine cabinet mounted over a pedestal sink) or something that just purely looks good! Ensuites and main bathrooms require storage for your toiletries and daily grooming accessories while powder rooms generally don't. If you don't have storage beneath the sink in your main bathroom or ensuite, consider a bathroom mirror with storagelike a medicine cabinet mirror. However, if you have enough storage already then you'll have a variety of wall-mounted mirrors to choose from!
Next, decide on what type of lighting you want to have. Lighting arrangement options can include:
Wall-mounted sconces on either side of the mirror.
Wall-mounted sconces above the mirror.
A single pendant light or two on either side of the mirror.
Integrated led lighting in your mirror.
The configuration of your mirror and lighting will help to determine the shape or dimensions of your mirror. For sconces on either side of your mirror, you can go for a taller narrow mirror, and If you would like the sconce above your mirror, a wide rectangular shape would provide enough space for a sconce above. Pendant lights however willy just vary in size depending on the overall room height. Continue reading for more on lighting in the 'Mirror and Sconce Arrangements' section below.
Lastly, what design style are you aiming for? Modern, minimalistic, traditional, or maybe something more playful? The mirror can be one of the focal points of the bathroom some personality into it that will complement the style of the entire room.
Keeping these key points in mind when updating or planning your bathroom will be really helpful when it comes to choosing the correct size mirror. It can be overwhelming standing in a shop without a plan, so taking some time to consider the points above will help keep you on track. We've got more on style later, so keep reading ;)

In a previous post, we talk about the importance of proper lighting in a room. Powder rooms and ensuites are often neglected, usually only offering one single light source for the whole room. It's important to layer lighting in these rooms, especially since these are the rooms where we do our personal grooming. We definitely don't want to be putting ourselves together under terrible lighting so getting the right lighting and lighting placement is crucial.

That being said, layering lights in the bathroom can be functional as well as improve the look and feel of your bathroom. Sconces on either side or above of the mirror are great for not only enhancing the design of your vanity but also help to cast even light across the face in addition to the central ceiling light. Having even lighting across your face is really important for the mirror you use to get ready in front of every day.

Placement Planning Recap:
Dimensions Knowing your sink, faucet, and vanity dimensions, as well as the ceiling height, is important when planning the lighting placement. This will help determine the correct mounting height of your lighting and the most suitable sized mirror. The general rule of thumb is to hang the center of the mirror at eye level or 57"-60" from the centre to the floor.
Lighting Design Lighting placement above or on either side of the mirror will also help define the mirror size. Sconces help to cast even shadows on the face vs. having a single light source. Sconces above the mirror should be hung 75”-80" off the finished floor depending on mirror size. Sconces mounted on either side of the mirror should be hung 60"-65" above the finished floor, or centred on the square and circular mirrors and at about eye level.
Balance Ensure sink, mirror, sconce, and faucet are all centred together if the lighting is mounted above the mirror. Sconces mounted on either side should be 36"-40" apart.
The width and height of the mirror will depend on the size (width) of the vanity (including the countertop). A good rule of thumbis to have the mirror a few inches shorter than the overall width of the countertop whether you are using a single mirror or double mirrors for a double sink vanity. For how high to hang the bathroom mirrorremember to mount the center of the mirror at eye level 57"-60" from the finished floor which is especially important for all you taller folks.
Below listed are common mirror sizes for common bathroom vanity widths. Note that not all vanity sizes will be the same, but here is a simple guide to get you started. Again, remember that the height of the mirror will vary depending on the lighting types you select and the overall ceiling height.
24-inch vanity - 22” to 23” Width Mirrors
30-inch vanity - 28” to 29” Width Mirrors
36-inch vanity - 34” to 35” Width Mirrors
48-inch vanity - 46” to 47” Width Mirrors
60-inch vanity - 58” to 59” Width Mirrors
72-inch vanity - 70” to 71” Width Mirrors
The Creativity Exchange
These tall simple black framed mirrors are perfect for these high ceilings and A-framed roof as it further enhances the space. If your vanity is recessed into the wall consider side-mounted sconces just like the image above.
Have Fun with Different Styles
Most homeowners will often go with the safer style when it comes to the overall styles and placement of their vanity, mirrors, and lighting. Our bathrooms and powder rooms are often the smaller rooms in the home that don't take up much square footage so why not have a little more fun in these rooms and opt for a stylish vanity mirror. Consider getting a little creative with different shaped mirrors, lighting styles, and finish the room off with bolder paint and countertop finishes. Below are some stunning powder rooms for creative inspiration.

Round mirrors bring an organic feel to the room. The curved edges help to bring softness and contrast to the other straighter edges. Bring contrast and creativity by stepping away from your standard square or rectangular mirror.

If you have a long vanity which is typically anywhere between 60"-72" and want the room to feel larger, opt for a large mirror. A smaller powder room, however, can get away with a smaller mirror since we tend to not do any grooming in these rooms. Have fun with lighting placement such as a pendant versus a sconce, or choose a decorative mirror to enhance the aesthetic of the room.

As mentioned earlier, tall and narrow mirrors paired with side sconces bring balance to taller ceilings and suite a classic modern design style. Vice versa, you could pair rectangular mirrors with ceiling pendants above for an overall modern take just like the image above (right), which pairs minimalistic black framed mirrors with black and white pendants.

No matter what the horizontal distance between the user and the mirror, the bottom edge of the mirror must be no higher than half the height of the user's eyes. If so, the ray of vision starting from the user's eyes and bouncing off the mirror right at the bottom edge will hit the ground just where his feet are. The horizontal distance is not important because the mirror is always exactly halfway between you and your image behind the looking-glass.
Since 48" is 121 cm, well above half of most people's height, there's a range of positions that will suffice, and you can choose among those by aesthetic preferences. I think it would would probably do well to hang the mirror such that its top edge is about a hand's width above the top of the tallest user's head. Unless that will make the bottom so high that the shortest users will have difficulty seeing themselves completely -- in which case lower it, but not more than such that the top edge is a few centimeters below the top of the tallest user's head.
