A bathroom without a mirror is like a forest without a tree. If you didn’t have a bathroom mirror, where would you practice your interview speech, see the funny faces you pull when you brush your teeth and double check your style whilst you wash your hands?

It may seem like one of the lesser items within a bathroom, cloakroom or en suite but without a bathroom mirror we’d be lost. For this simple reason here at Victorian Plumbing, we've decided to compile a list of mirror styles perfect for any bathroom.

Standard Bathroom Mirrors

Image isn't everything! A standard bathroom mirror is generally the style of mirror that comes to mind when you’re feeling least creative. This may sound negative but, some of the best mirror styles are simple and effective. The minimalist look is a hot trend right now and choosing a mirror for your bathroom which has little to no features can be a huge success.

Below are 3 styles of standard bathroom mirrors from contemporary to traditional designs:

HIB Opus Bathroom Mirror

The Opus standard bathroom mirror by HIB features a geometric brilliant cut design to help it stand out from the crowd.

Heritage Chesham Mirror In Burnished Gold

Heritage Chesham Mirror - Burnished Gold

The Chesham bathroom mirror by Heritage is built to the highest standards and features this classic traditional design.

Downton Abbey Traditional Mirror in Duck Egg Blue

The Downton Abbey traditional bathroom mirror is exclusive to Victorian Plumbing and features this stunning duck egg blue colour!

Mirrored Cabinets

Reflecting on storage space? A mirrored cabinet will add a generous and practical space to any bathroom. They’re perfect for hiding away toiletries, medication and Mickey Mouse plasters. It’s up to you what you store within a bathroom cabinet really but another great element is that you can use the mirrored doors as a normal bathroom mirror. The storage element is an excellent benefit to smaller bathrooms as it utilises wall space and saves precious floor space.

Brooklyn Bathroom Mirror Cabinet - Grey Avola

The Brooklyn bathroom cabinet mirror by Victorian Plumbing features soft close doors for when you don’t want to wake the rest of the family at night.

Old London Stone Grey Mirror Cabinet

This period style Old London cabinet mirror is manufactured to the highest standards and will look the part in any traditional bathroom.

Miller Nova 80 Illuminated Mirror Cabinet in Black

The Nova 80 mirror cabinet by Miller is a luxurious bathroom mirror with a contemporary style.

Illuminated Bathroom Mirrors

Here’s a bright idea! If you want a bathroom with a completely modern style then turn your attention to illuminated bathroom mirrors. These are not only ultra-cool but they also offer a unique element in comparison to other options. A traditional bathroom may not appreciate a bathroom mirror with LED lights although some rule breakers amongst you may just want to add that extra touch…especially when you see the sensor point technology, fitted with some options, which illuminates the mirror when you wave your hand near it.

This contemporary style illuminated bathroom mirror by Euroshowers includes motion sensor lighting.

Have you ever pictured sound and vision from your bathroom mirror? With the Bauhaus Revive 1.0 contemporary style mirror you’ll get sound via Bluetooth technology as well as a clear image with LED lighting and fog free functionality.

Shaving Socket Mirrors

This is no shameless plug! Even though beards are currently very fashionable for men there are still lots of them who shave daily and even trim the ones they grow. That’s why shaving socket mirrors will always come in handy and when beards finally become less trendy, you'll have a complete bathroom suite shaver-ready with one of these bathroom mirrors with a shaver socket. Even if you want a bathroom mirror that has a shaver socket for those just in case moments, maybe when a family member or friend visits, then these great mirrors neatly hide the socket from view so nobody would even know it’s there, unless you tell them. So even beards do go out of style at least your bathroom mirror won’t!

For a bathroom mirror that’s a cut above the rest why not take a look at the Niche single mirror cabinet by Ultra? It’s shaving socket feature is the perfect addition to any bathroom mirror.

Fog Free Mirrors

If the bathroom haze is leaving you dazed then it’s time you considered a fog free mirror. It’s impossible to use a bathroom mirror which has steamed up, unless you want to write somebody a message, and you can guarantee you’ll always need to use the mirror urgently when it is all misty. Instead of leaving streaks and hand marks on your bathroom mirror just to get a blurry reflection choose a mirror with a de-mister.

The LED square mirror by Euroshowers not only lights up any bathroom brilliantly but its mist-free feature ensures full visibility in the steamiest of situations.

They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, styles and finishes, and will never be a wasted purchase for your bathroom. Whether you’re male or female; always look to add one of these mirrors to your bathroom, cloakroom or en suite to increase functionality and style. It can be a quick and cheap way to increase the amount of bathroom furniture you have too!
