Every bathroom has a mirror, but not all bathroom mirrors are created equal.
Some are framed and others frameless, some with built-in storage, lights, or other features, and many more without. But with so many choices, it can be a little difficult to know which one is right for you and your bathroom – and all too easy to opt for a pre-packaged mirror that might not be the best fit for your needs.
Frameless Bathroom Mirrors
Popular in high-end design, especially in larger bathrooms, frameless mirrors take up all the space on the wall above your vanity, from the top of the backsplash all or nearly all the way up to the ceiling, and often all the way across the wall horizontally.
Frameless mirrors are made of a single large piece of glass, and so can be quite expensive, but offer the fullest reflection of any type of bathroom mirror.
They don’t have any storage but can help make a bathroom seem much larger than it is and can easily be used by multiple people at once.
Framed Bathroom Mirrors
These simple, relatively small bathroom mirrors are the type that are frequently packaged with pre-made bathroom vanities.
Designed to be hung at face height, they offer much less coverage than a frameless mirror, but will get the job done.
Framed bathroom mirrors don’t come with any storage (though framed, recessed medicine cabinets offer much the same look with included shelving) but often have a sort of homey appearance to them.
They also work especially well in pairs, with one mounted over each basin in a double sink vanity.
