The vanity is one of the most important parts of your bathroom. After all, it takes up a lot of space and needs to largely set the tone for the rest of the room. When you pick yours out, there are going to be plenty of things to consider, from size to shape to material.
One further consideration that people often fail to think about is whether to choose a vanity with a matching mirror. Most vanity units will have several mirrors precisely matched to them that can be added to your purchase as options.
Here are just three reasons why using a vanity-matched mirror is a good idea.
1. The Right Style
As stated above, your vanity goes a lot way towards setting the tone for the bathroom as a whole. Most people want all the items and furnishings in their bathroom to come together, and choosing a vanity-matched mirror is one way of making sure that happens. The style of the mirror will perfectly complement that of the vanity since they are of the same design family. There are normally a couple of options, so you can still choose the one best suited to your own tastes, but you won't risk ending up with a mirror that looks jarringly out of place.
2. The Right Size
Perhaps more important than style is size. The mirror above your vanity should be centred above it, with the same amount of space to each side. This creates a pleasingly symmetrical appearance. If you opt for any old mirror, you might find your options either too small or too large. Even if you don't, it's a little annoying and unnecessary to keep taking measurements when you could have picked up a mirror perfectly sized for your vanity at the same time you got the vanity itself.
3. The Right Price
Finally, it's well worth considering the fact that buying a vanity-matched mirror will probably save you a bit of money. These items are meant to be sold together, which means that retailers will often reduce the overall price if you pick up the vanity and the mirror at the same time. Installation is also going to be easier since the same people who bring you your vanity and fit it in your bathroom can also bring and fit the mirror. You can either save that money or put it towards another part of your bathroom renovation.Share
