The 7 Best Bathroom Mirrors of 2022

The Spruce / Chloe Jeong

Whether you're revamping an outdated bathroom or want to swap out your builder-grade finishes, there are mirror options that can transform your space. The right bathroom mirror can make your bathroom appear larger, divide the space to achieve a new look, and provide storage.

In our search for the best bathroom mirrors, we sought advice from interior designer Annie Kersey of Purple Cherry Architects, who provided tips on installation, placement, and design options. Kersey also helped us sort out how to pick the best mirror for different types of bathrooms.

"You should also consider shape," Kersey told The Spruce. For example, Kersey pointed out that round mirrors are better for filling long horizontal spaces, such as between wall sconces. "If you are in more of a tight space, try a long, skinny rectangular mirror."

Our favorite bathroom mirror is the Linden Rectangular Mirror from Pottery Barn, which is elegant, with clean lines and a slim frame. However, we have other recommendations that may work better for your bathroom and needs.

Here are the best bathroom mirrors.

Our Top Picks

Best Overall

Pottery Barn Linden Rectangular Mirror

What We Like
  • Versatile

  • Comes in three finishes and two sizes

  • Pairs with other Linden collection hardware

What We Don't Like
  • Vertical orientation only

This rectangular option from Pottery Barn is our top pick because it has a slim frame, clean lines, and is endlessly versatile. To accommodate different bathroom layouts and decor schemes, it comes in two sizes and three finishes: classic chrome, vintage-inspired tumbled brass, and modish matte black.

While the Linden is designed for vertical orientation only, you could hang two next to each other in a bathroom with double vanities. Since the design is so understated, it matches well with various decor styles, especially rustic or modern. You'll want to look elsewhere if you need storage, however.

This mirror is made of steel and highly reflective glass, with a high-strength MDF (medium-density fiberboard) backing. It calls for cleat-style mounting and comes with all the necessary hardware. Cleaning it is easy, too. Simply wipe it down with a soft, dampened sponge or towel to remove dust, fingerprints, and other stains.

You can also finish your bathroom design with other pieces from the Linden collection, like a faucet, towel bar, shelf, or sconce.

Best Budget

Amazon Basics Rectangular Wall Mirror

What We Like
  • Multiple styles available

  • Comes in various finishes

  • Lightweight

What We Don't Like
  • Plastic frame

  • Collects more debris than other options

If you're decorating your bathroom on a budget, look no further than Amazon's assortment of rectangular mirrors. The Amazon Basics Rectangular Wall Mirror comes in three sizes and several frame styles, including options with wide, decorative, and peaked trims. With six frame colors available, you'll definitely find something that works with your design aesthetic. We also love that these mirrors can hang vertically or horizontally, allowing you to customize your space even further.

One thing to note is that the frame is made of plastic. While it may not feel as high-end as wood or metal options, it will look like it is. Not only that, but the lightweight plastic frame makes it easier to hang. It includes all the hanging hardware and installs within minutes. Another downside is that there's a slight gap between the mirror and the frame, so dust, hair, and other debris can collect there over time. Still, it's easy to wipe down and clean with a damp cloth.

Dimensions: 16 x 20 inches, 20 x 28 inches, 24 x 36 inches | Weight: 4.5 pounds | Shape: Rectangle | Mount Type: Sawtooth brackets | Orientation: Vertical or horizontal

Best Splurge

Rejuvenation Bentwood Rounded Rectangle Mirror

What We Like
  • High-end appeal

  • Comes in various finishes

  • Moisture-resistant

What We Don't Like
  • May overwhelm small bathrooms

  • May need a stud finder to install

If it's within your budget, consider the Bentwood Mirror from Rejuvenation. It has a classic rectangular shape, but the rounded corners give it a modern twist. This piece comes in two sizes, which work great in medium and large bathrooms, and can hang vertically or horizontally with the included keyhole mounts. It installs quickly, but if you plan to align it with the studs in your wall, you'll need a stud finder to determine this.

The Brentwood boasts solid brass construction and a thin wood frame in your choice of black ash, walnut, or white oak. And it's designed for use in moisture-prone spaces, so you won't have to worry about shower steam and sink splashes damaging the frame. This also makes it a great option to use in outdoor spaces.

Best Round

What We Like
  • Comes in various finishes

  • Easy to hang

  • Warranty available

What We Don't Like
  • Pricier than other options

  • Warranty costs extra

Circular mirrors are an excellent way to make a subtle statement in a bathroom, and this option from Grayleigh is our favorite. It's super easy to hang since you don't need to level any straight edges and includes all the hanging hardware. It's also available in 10 sizes ranging from 18 to 48 inches in diameter, so you can find an option that accommodates the size of your bathroom—big or small.

This mirror is reasonably priced, but bear in mind the larger sizes are more expensive. The thin metal frame features intentional distressing to create a vintage-inspired appeal. And it's available in six finishes to complement the rest of your decor. You also have the option of adding on a five-year warranty to protect your purchase.

Best Oval

Joss & Main McGraw Oval Metal Wall Mirror

What We Like
  • Durable

  • Comes in various finishes

  • Deep-set glass

What We Don't Like
  • May overwhelm small bathrooms

  • Collects more debris than other options

Joss & Main makes our favorite oval option. The McGraw Metal Wall Mirror has a sturdy iron frame in your choice of matte black or distressed gold. We like how the banded perimeter and deep-set glass create a three-dimensional effect. However, this effect causes it to collect more dust, hair, and debris on the frame than other options. We recommend wiping it down frequently with a damp cloth to remedy this.

This mirror only comes in one size, but it should work in most bathrooms. You can also hang it vertically or horizontally and place two side by side over double vanities. It includes all of the hanging hardware and is easy to install. Like other options on our list, you can also purchase a warranty to protect your purchase.

Best Square

Uttermost Alexo 28" Square Wall Mirror

What We Like
  • Versatile

  • Easy to hang

  • Comes in various finishes

What We Don't Like
  • May need two for large bathrooms

If you're looking for a square mirror, we recommend the Uttermost Alexo Wall Mirror. The thin frame and sharp lines offer a refined look. Meanwhile, the square silhouette is unique enough to make a statement without sacrificing timelessness or versatility. We love it for its durability and simple look that pairs well with various decor styles.

Unfortunately, it only comes in one size. But the mid-size design is just right for most bathroom vanities, and you can hang two side by side if you need more coverage for a larger bathroom. It's easy to hang and includes all the hanging hardware you need to install it.

The Uttermost Alexo Wall Mirror is available in your choice of brushed silver, gold, or matte black frames.

What We Like
  • Comes in various finishes

  • Moisture-resistant

  • Warranty available

What We Don't Like
  • May overwhelm small bathrooms

If you want to veer from traditional shapes, try this arched mirror from Glass Warehouse. Sometimes referred to as a Norman window, this style has a semi-circle on top and a squared-off bottom. It's available in three sizes with slightly different proportions. While it may be too large for a small bathroom, it looks great in pairs over double vanities. You can also pick from four frame finishes, including white, black, satin brass, and pale pink.

The frame is crafted from stainless steel, and the backing is moisture-resistant MDF. This makes it a particularly versatile option, allowing you to use it in an outdoor space as well. You also have the option of purchasing a warranty to protect your purchase.

Price at time of publish: $149

Dimensions: 30 x 20 inches, 32 x 30 inches, 38 x 22 inches | Weight: 17 to 23 pounds | Shape: Norman window | Mount Type: Brackets | Orientation: Vertical

Best for Double Vanities

What We Like
  • Comes in various finishes

  • Versatile

  • Rust-resistant

What We Don't Like
  • Heavy

  • Two-person installation

Looking for a large looking glass to go over a double vanity? Check out the NeuType Oversized Bathroom Mirror. The rectangular design comes in five sizes, each of which can hang horizontally or vertically. Most sizes will cover the width of double sinks in the horizontal position, but if you want a taller look, you could get two and hang them vertically. The mirror is versatile enough that you could also use it as a floor mirror in your bedroom or walk-in closet.

This mirror has a rust-resistant aluminum alloy frame with a black, gold, or silver finish. Due to the large size, it's heavier than most other bathroom mirrors and calls for two-person installation. However, it's very durable and should last for ages in your home.

Price at time of publish: $278

Dimensions: 32 x 52 inches, 36 x 59 inches, 32 x 70 inches, 24 x 71 inches, 32 x 72 inches | Weight: 30 to 52 pounds | Shape: Rectangle | Mount Type: Floating | Orientation: Horizontal or vertical

Best Tiltable

West Elm Metal Frame Rectangle Pivot Wall Mirror

What We Like
  • Professional installation available

  • Comes in five finishes and two sizes

  • Pairs with other West Elm hardware

What We Don't Like
  • Sticks out from wall several inches

West Elm's Pivot Wall Mirror can be tilted up and down to get a better view from various angles. Besides allowing you to see more of your body, it's a great option for couples of different heights. There are two sizes available to accommodate small and large bathrooms. However, due to the tilting mechanism, it can only hang vertically.

This rectangular bathroom mirror has a high-quality metal frame in five finishes. We also like that you can pair it with matching fixtures and accessories from West Elm, like a towel holder, soap dispenser, or trash bin. And if you're not up for hanging it yourself, you can add professional installation to your order.

Price at time of publish: $350

Dimensions: 35 x 23 x 4 inches, 24 x 20 x 4 inches | Weight: 11 to 22 pounds | Shape: Rectangle | Mount Type: Bracket | Orientation: Vertical

Best Medicine Cabinet

Amazon

What We Like
  • Left or right hinge

  • Adjustable shelves

  • Rust- and chip-resistant

What We Don't Like
  • May need two for large bathrooms

You might also consider a medicine cabinet, like this frameless, beveled-edge design from Kohler. It's constructed from extra-durable anodized aluminum and boasts an anti-rust, chip-resistant finish. Inside are two adjustable shelves for all your skincare and personal hygiene essentials. We love that it works seamlessly with small bathrooms, although you'll likely need two for a larger bathroom. Luckily, this mirror looks great over double vanities.

While there's only one size and finish available, we like that you can reverse the door hinge for left or right orientation. This mirror can also be recessed into a wall or surface-mounted and comes with an installation kit for either option. It's also backed by the brand's one-year warranty to protect your purchase. To clean it, simply wipe it with a damp cloth.

Dimensions: 20 x 26 x 4 inches | Weight: 25 pounds | Shape: Rectangle | Mount Type: Recess or surface | Orientation: Vertical

What We Like
  • Versatile

  • Touch sensor

  • Adjustable temperature

What We Don't Like
  • Calls for professional hardwiring

Want to make your bathroom look expensive? Consider a lighted mirror, like the Fleming from Signature Hardware. The rectangular shape, rounded corners, and frameless design offer a modern aesthetic without compromising versatility. This mirror boasts lightweight aluminum construction and a touch-activated LED light with adjustable color temperature.

It comes in two sizes, but note the bigger size can only hang horizontally, and the smaller size can only hang vertically. Also, it calls for professional installation by an electrician. Still, it's durable enough to last in a humid environment like your bathroom.

Price at time of publish: $370

Dimensions: 32 x 24 x 2 inches, 27.5 x 20 x 2 inches | Weight: 18 to 20 pounds | Shape: Rectangle | Mount Type: Keyhole | Orientation: Depends on size

Final Verdict

Overall, we like the Pottery Barn Linden Rectangular Mirror. The timeless, versatile, high-quality design comes in three finishes and pairs with other fixtures from the Linden collection. If you're on a budget, we recommend the Amazon Basics Rectangular Wall Mirror, which comes in several frame colors and styles. And if you're open to splurging on something higher-end, consider the humidity-resistant Bentwood Rounded Rectangle Mirror from Rejuvenation.

What to Look for in a Bathroom Mirror

Size

You should choose a size that complements your vanity: not so small that it looks awkward but not too big that it takes over the wall. The size of your bathroom is important, too—again, you don't want something too bulky and overwhelming. On the other hand, mirrors make a room look large, and too small a mirror won't be helpful if you need it as you get ready in the morning.

"Consider the spacing between the faucet and the lighting above or to the side of the mirror," says interior designer Annie Kersey of Purple Cherry Architects, explaining that the fixtures should be thoughtfully positioned so they don't look crammed together or spread too far apart. "Ideally, there should be two to three inches of space from the edge of the mirror to the lights."

This spacing also has a practical component. ""I like keeping the mirror higher than the spout height [of the sink] to help eliminate some splatter," says Kersey, so you'll want a mirror sized allows for the most useful placement as well.

Shape

The two most common mirror shapes are rectangular and circular, but you'll also find ovals, squares, Norman windows, and even some asymmetrical designs. The choice comes down to personal preference. Round mirrors are a bit softer and tend to look more stylish, while angular mirrors create a sleek, modern feel.

If you have double vanities, you can either use one long rectangular mirror to create the illusion of more space or install two identical mirrors side by side to create distinct zones for each sink.

Storage

If you're short on space in your bathroom, you should look for a mirror with storage, whether located behind the mirror or, in a more modern interpretation, on or around it. Medicine cabinets abound, and many are actually quite stylish, while mirrors with shelves are growing in popularity to keep your favorite products close at hand.

FAQ
  • How do you hang mirrors on a wall?

    To hang a mirror, first, you'll want to inspect the back. Does it have one hook? Two hooks? A bracket? A wire? This will help determine what kind of hardware you'll need. Because of the weight, most mirrors require nails to hang them safely and properly. However, some strong adhesive hooks may also work, as long as they're suited to how heavy the mirror is. Once you know what kind of hardware you're using, mark out where you want the mirror to hang on your wall, and measure the back to make sure the nails or hook are in the right place. Use a level to ensure the mirror is straight once hung.

    "Bathroom mirrors should be hung at eye-level," says Kersey. "I usually start the mirror 6 inches above the bathroom countertop height." If you're installing it on a wall with sconces, she suggests lining them up at the same eye-level height.

  • How do you arrange circle mirrors on a wall?

    Circle mirrors can be arranged by themselves or as a group. Think of them as a gallery wall, use an odd number and create a cluster of different sizes to make a statement. Try to use mirrors with the same frame style for a cohesive look. 

  • How do you remove glued mirrors from a wall?

    To remove glued mirrors from a wall, you first want to ensure you have the proper safety tools and equipment. Glass is extremely fragile, so use goggles and gloves to keep from injury in case it breaks. Lay a drop cloth on the floor as well. Start by covering the mirror in heavy-duty packing tape to reduce its likelihood of shattering. Then, use a shimmy or crowbar to gently pry the mirror off the wall, starting from any gap.
