How Mirrors Can Help To Brighten Up a Bathroom

Mirrors are versatile and practical bathroom fittings that can be used in various ways to brighten up this space. Here are some tips to help you make the most of mirrors in your bathroom this summer:
Strategic Placement:
Placing mirrors opposite windows or light sources can help reflect natural light throughout the room, making it appear brighter and more spacious. Consider positioning a mirror above the basin or vanity to reflect light and create a sense of openness.
Statement Mirrors:
Opt for a statement mirror with a unique shape or design to add a focal point to your bathroom. A chic, oversized mirror can make a bold statement and enhance the overall aesthetic of this space. Consider those bathroom mirror styles that promote these fittings as centrepieces. 
Mirrored Surfaces:
Incorporating mirrored surfaces, such as mirrored cabinets or tiles, can add depth and luminosity to your bathroom. Mirrored accents can reflect light and create a sense of glamour and sophistication.
Multiple Mirrors:
Use multiple mirrors in different shapes and sizes to create visual interest and dimension in your bathroom. Cluster smaller mirrors together to create a gallery wall of interstate or mix and match mirrors for a stylish and eclectic look.
