Bathroom Idea: Mirror Gallery

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall,

Who has the darkest, drabbest, most boring bathroom of all?


If you just inwardly answered that question with, “I do!  I do!”, then this idea is for you.

Interior Alchemy

It is no secret mirrors can really open up a small space or room with little natural light.  Grouping mirrors together not only helps with the feel and scale of a room, it adds interest.  Of course, this idea could work in any room, but I especially like it in a bathroom.  There is something about a mirror gallery in a bathroom that makes it feel less sterile, more of a real room, cozy.

You could recreate the vignette below by heading to your local thrift store, flea market, or consignment center and picking up various mirrors.  Spray paint the frames the same color, and wha-la!

Love, love this one.  I would want to take an extra long rest break and just stare at the things in here.  Mixing the art and objects in with the mirrors creates an intriguing layered effect.

If you want your mirror collage to have a more contemporary or modern edge, try this idea.  How easy would it be to go to a craft store and get varying sizes of mirror and make a puzzle of it?!

This one is not a bathroom, but I just love it.  That mint green color, and the frameless mirrors covering the walls, oh my!

In fact, I think the frameless mirror collections are my favorite.  The simplicity of them make it so fresh and inviting.  Actually, I have a bathroom CRYING OUT for this idea.  It is a tiny narrow guest bath next to my basement.  Keep your eyes out for some future before and after pictures!

What do you think of this idea?  How can you use it in your home?

    I really like this when it is all mirrors. When it is not – not so much. Really enjoy your blog. Dad

    This might not be the ideal place to request this, but I’m trying to find a FREE House Plans online and and have no method to find out who is the very best. I uncovered this website which is I find reliable and wanted to see if any person has any reviews on them. SDS CAD.
    Please help me with this as my wife and I have been struggling to find a good/reliable site to obtain affordable and even FREE house designs.
