It’s time: you’re finally going to upgrade your bathroom look by framing the mirror. Yet, just as you’re excited to get started on this easy and affordable mini-makeover, you’re struck with indecision. With so many different frames to choose from, how do you know what will look best in your bathroom?
We know choosing the right frame can be intimidating. That’s why we’re here to help walk you through the steps to making your decision. And trust us: before you know it, you’ll be stepping back to confidently admire your perfectly framed mirror.
Here are our best tips for selecting the frame style that’s right for you:
Consider your bathroom style
From easily changeable décor items like shower curtains and bath mats, to less flexible design touches, like your faucet finish and vanity surface, you want your new mirror frame to integrate seamlessly with your current bathroom style. Think carefully about how certain colors and materials will look together to ensure you’re creating a look that is natural and coordinated.
Consider the feel you want
Different frames will create different ambiance in your bathroom, so take the time to determine the feel you want to establish. The color, material and finish of your chosen frame can all impact your bathroom style in subtle, but effective ways. For instance, if you want a bathroom that feels fresh and modern, a contemporary frame might be more your style. Or, if you really want to make your mirror a statement piece in your bathroom, you might be interested in a more ornate frame.
Order sample frames
If you’re on the fence between a few different frame types, don’t leave your decision up to chance. Instead, order a few sample sizes so you can see first hand how your new frame will work in your bathroom. This can be especially helpful in bathrooms with tricky lighting or mixed finishes — and the peace of mind that comes with seeing your frame options in person will be well worth it.
With all that said, here’s one thing we know for sure: framing your bathroom mirror will be worth it, even if choosing a frame seems tough.
