If you’re remodeling your bathroom, chances are you’ve thought about purchasing a mirror with shelf. You may have done this because you believe the space will allow you to add a nice, big shelf to the back of the mirror, which would allow you to use the mirror as a mirror table.
Choosing the right mirror with shelf can be difficult. Here are some tips to help you choose the right mirror:
Consider the dimensions of the mirror. Don’t assume that because a mirror has the word “mirror” in its name that it has to look like a mirror. Look for a mirror with a flat top that extends all the way down the wall. The bottom of the mirror should also be flat.
Style and finish matter. If you want the mirror to serve as a mirror table, consider the type of finish that it has. Some mirrors come in a matte finish. Others are made of glass.
Choose a mirror with shelves that go all the way to the floor. These are called half-length mirrors. They are the perfect size for this purpose. They can be used to hold makeup and bath products, plus some slippers or towels.
Mirrors with shelves are sold in sets. One set includes the mirror itself and two shelves, one in the back and one in the front. Some sets include a mirror table. These sets usually cost more than just the mirror and shelves individually.
Look for mirrored backsplashes in the same color as the mirror. That’s a safe bet if you know what color the mirror is. However, it doesn’t mean you have to pick that exact shade.
Style and design are only part of the picture. It’s important to choose a mirror with shelves that match the theme of the bathroom and style of the room.
Mirrors with shelves are available in almost any style. They may be wall-mounted, tabletop, towel holders, and even pendant types. Take some time to look at all the styles available before you decide on a style.
Take the time to measure the bathroom and the room to find the perfect size for the mirror. Make sure the mirror will fit on both sides of the door. Measure the height of the bathroom vanity and the mirror so you know the height of the mirror to take into account.
If you are looking at a mirror with shelves that are mounted on the wall, then make sure that the bathroom vanity is large enough to fit both shelves. Some mirrors are limited by the height of the vanity.
When you finally buy a new mirror with shelf, install it carefully, so that it will look good the first time. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for care. If the mirror is only for decorative purposes, it won’t hurt to put a protective cover over it, but if it’s going to be used for cleaning, put a protective cover on it.
