Years ago I traded a builder grade cabinet and bland overhead vanity light with an updated look in our hall bathroom and it's a medley you'll see over and over again in a designer space.
Many builders in non-custom homes install frameless mirrors the width of the vanity because it is easy and inexpensive to do so but the look can leave a bathroom feeling far too ordinary without the shapes or accents that differentiate the space.
Stylish mirrors and pretty sconces will easily update every bathroom.
Consider a replacement such as a rustic wood mirror to add texture and cool chrome sconces for contrast.
In this space above by Jennifer Worts Design, rustic wood appears on the vanity and in the mirror frames while contemporary chrome sconces and faucets add elegance. Get a similar look with the Gardere Wood Mirror and George Kovacs Chrome Wall Sconce.
Classic style bathroom with scalloped mirror.
A more traditional vanity with bun feet is enhanced by hanging a shapely scalloped mirror above it and adding two shiny silver sconces in a transitional style. Find similar pieces in the Kichler Silver Scallop Mirror and the Brushed Steel Sconce.
Pairing beautiful mirrors and sconces for a stylish bathroom design.
If you want the wow factor, seek out a mirror and sconces in contrasting but eye-catching shapes, both linear and curvaceous. This beautiful bathroom by Veranda Interiors shows just how beautifully they partner together. Capture the same stunning look with the Possini Midtown High Chrome Bar Light and the Lawson White MIrror.
It's an easy way to have a modern bathroom with designer style, mix a stunning statement mirror with a pair of chic sconces in a style that both makes you happy and complements your home and you can't go wrong.
