Update with Mirrors

Hang a mirror above the sink as a stylish replacement for a tired medicine cabinet.

Using mirrors to make a space feel larger may be one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it sure works! In the remodeled bath shown here, a large strategically placed mirror makes the narrow space seem twice as large and doesn't sacrifice space for morning routines.

Tips for Using Mirrors in the Bath:

  • Hang a mirror above the tub to make a tight area feel more spacious.
  • Stand a decorative mirror in front of or propped against a vanity mirror to create a little drama and elegance.
  • Frame stock mirrors with simple molding from a home-improvement store, and paint it to match the other trim in the room.
