I’ve had bathrooms on the brain lately as I’ve been working on an update to our guest bathroom. Part of that process has been choosing a new mirror to replace the builder-basic version that had been gracing our wall before. Just adding a large, round black framed mirror added some much-needed energy and character to the room.
Just because a mirror is functional doesn’t mean it can’t be unique and beautiful, too! Consider swapping out your current mirror for a new, round model. It’s a fun way to inject some personality into your bathroom – and much quicker, easier and less expensive than replacing a vanity or tile. The curved mirror softens all the straight lines and square edges found in a bathroom, and it’s a fun, low-effort change that makes a big impact. Here are some ways you can use a round mirror to breathe some new life into your bathroom.
1. Pair a round mirror with sleek wall sconces or hanging pendant lights on either side.
2. Feature two round mirrors over a double sink vanity. Below, Heather opted for two round beauties with leather straps to add more height visually and coordinate with the industrial lighting.

3. Or, instead of two smaller mirrors, opt for one giant round mirror over your double vanity to add some drama to your morning routine and reflect more light into your bathroom.
4. If you’re wondering whether or not your existing centered light will work over a round mirror – fear not! Whether you have a single light or a multi-bulb bar light, a round mirror can not only work but add some style and impact.
Now, circle back and imagine these same bathrooms with square or rectangle mirrors instead of their beautiful round versions. Not as interesting, right? Could your room benefit from a round mirror? Here is a roundup of some of our favorites that will fit any wall and any budget. Choose from warm woods, metal finishes, or sleek black frames. Sources are linked below!
